Meet the sponsor
Barkway-based Strand PR is the sponsor of the Restaurant of the Year category in this year’s awards
We are Strand PR and we are different. We are different because we do straight talking. With us, there’s no blue-sky thinking, we don’t do strategising or indeed thinking outside the box. We also promise not to create a sophisticated, 199page marketing strategy with leverages and segmentations!
But what we will do is straightforward, like tea and biscuits and salt and pepper. Drum roll please… because you don’t often get jargon-free sentences from marketing agencies. We will communicate with your audience, sharing interesting content they want to read which in turn raises awareness of your organisation and, crucially, leads to sales.
We do social media management, press releases, Google AdWords, pay-per-click advertising, SEO building, design and print, copywriting, award entry writing, email campaigns and website design – so pretty much most things marketing, and we are good at all of them. We are not arrogant, just secure and confident in our abilities.
Importantly, our clever techniques, insightful approach and honed skills work – and we can prove it by the fact that we’re not only surviving but, well into our fifth year, we’re thriving, having just added another addition to our expanding team.
Clients using us say ‘the effect was pretty much immediate, and we saw a huge step change in the number of people wanting our services’, and that we have ‘second-to-none understanding of how the media work and on that basis can achieve phenomenal coverage’.
Laura Pearce is our founder, chief social wizard, lead PR tactician, copywriter supremo and imperious boss, having set up the agency with a commitment to offer businesses a fresh, progressive mix of trusted, proven techniques and cuttingedge marketing.
Laura is Hertfordshire through and through, born and bred, and likes nothing more than walking her dog Hugo in the county’s glorious countryside.
