SMALL CREATIVE BUSINESSES

Why is the press pod different?

The high cost of hiring a PR company prevents most small creative businesses from gaining much needed press coverage.   This is very frustrating,  particularly as designer makers and artists have so much to offer.  So we took action!
This unique new service is a daily listing of journalist requests especially curated for creative businesses. .  These are available in a private area within the website for members to access and reply to quickly, easily and – most of all – affordably.
You’ll be delighted to hear that our credentials are superb!  Our team has over 30 years combined experience in marketing and the media!  So, yes, we know the industry inside and out,  and are looking forward to opening this Pandora’s box for you!
