Startup PR is an award winning agency that has already helped to launch and grow hundreds of startups and small businesses by securing high profile, cost-effective media exposure.
Our launch package is designed to take your new idea to big audiences in a quick, effective way. We will work with you to identify the key angles and PR opportunities to target high profile print, online and broadcast media. We will write engaging releases to get your business noticed and profile the people behind it to build trust and credibility. Then, working with our established network of media contacts, we will generate the kind of media exposure that will give your business a boost, including product reviews, features, write-ups, interviews, Q&As, expert comment and guest articles.
Our monthly retainer service is great if you want to continue to grow your media profile over a more sustained period. We find this longer-term relationship is ideal when you have products that can be made relevant to the press at different times throughout the year, or if you just want to ensure regular exposure to grow your presence and to be seen as a market leader. Step-Up PR is often the preferred choice with fast growth start-ups who are scaling their business quickly and want to incorporate PR activity such as award entries, brand building, case studies, partnership announcements and thought leadership into their wider strategy.
Startup PR came up with excellent ideas and very quickly achieved outstanding results. I was so pleased with Startup PR’s service that I recommended them to other successful business women I know. They have all used its services and have all got similarly excellent results.
Our brands have appeared regularly in the national press, on influential websites and blogs, and even on the BBC’s Working Lunch. Ella has been a pleasure to work with and I would recommend Startup PR without hesitation.
In just one month, Startup PR achieved excellent results, including coverage in Mail on Sunday, Financial Mail and other key women’s lifestyle media. She even got us an offer to appear on GMTV. Ella is hard working, down to earth and flexible – which, for a small company like ourselves, is very important
Within the first few days of working with us, Ella had secured a TV spot in front of 6m viewers and a radio interview with Smooth FM. Couldn’t have asked for much more really!
We specialise in bringing brilliant new brands to big audiences. Over the last 8 years we have managed the PR launches for exciting and innovative businesses which continue to thrive and grow.
We’ve worked with clients in a range of sectors including lifestyle, consumer tech, parenting, business services, home and interiors and finance. The one thing they have in common is that they are all small businesses with big ideas. We know how to put those big ideas in front of big audiences.
Clients tell us that we stand out because we provide a personal service typical to that of an ‘in-house’ team. We believe the client-PR relationship needs to be an honest and transparent one in order to achieve the best results, so we value these relationships and will always be on the end of the telephone or on email if you want to chat.
Ella is a multi-award winning PR with more than 15 years working in the industry, including time as PR Manager for ITV and managing publicity behind leading business publisher Crimson (guys behind startups.co.uk and Growing Business Magazine).
She has has worked with hundreds of small businesses and as well as a bulging book of media contacts, has a nose for what will make the ‘news’. Ella loves working with start-ups and finds the passion and enthusiasm of the people behind them motivating and inspiring.
When she’s not working Ella can be found scrambling over the Herefordshire Hills, looking for treasure with her gruesome little ‘Pirates’ and her nutty Vizsla.
Matt has spent his career working in-house for businesses in a wide variety of industries, including travel, financial services and sports. Having worked for some large established brands, and some fast-paced innovative start-ups, he is in no doubt about which is the most fun and he loves the enthusiasm and energy that his clients share.
As well as planning and running PR campaigns for clients, Matt is the resident wordsmith so can often be found hunched over a laptop and a lukewarm coffee writing and re-writing press releases and articles. He has written for some of the largest national newspapers, glossy magazines and niche trade publications, so without realising it, you may well have already read his work.
Outside of the office, Matt is a music geek and loves playing and watching sport whenever he can. More often than not, however, it seems that the choice of music is now dictated by his kids and ‘playing sport’ is actually chasing a rugby ball round the garden with them.
