When it comes to public relations, you’re sexy – and we know it

Edinburgh public relations agency delivers sexy PR to unglamorous businessesWHAT is stopping you from using public relations to boost your business, company or service?

We hear many questions from those considering using PR services. The most common one is when business people ask: “What have we got to say that anyone would be interested in?”

In a series of posts (see the links below) we’ll show you how we’ve answered that challenge for real businesses with unglamorous products and services – delighting them with the results delivered.

We love helping businesses that previously struggled to have their stories told, or who felt their work wasn’t “interesting enough” for a mass audience. The fact is, many people just don’t believe what they do is sexy enough to catch attention.

At award winning PR agency Holyrood PR, we’ve got a mantra which goes like this: We don’t see complex issues, dry subject matter, technical detail or industry jargon, we see potential stories.

We understand not every company or brand is glamorous, edgy, pop culture trendy or led by a charismatic, photogenic and soundbite-friendly media darling. Here’s the rub. You don’t have to be those things.

Creativity in public relations is about finding the real stories, involving real people and telling them in a way that makes them relevant to the right audience.

How can our PR services help your business?
