Ask us why we’re different to other PR agencies and we’ll tell you it’s because we don’t want to be a big agency. Of course we’re ambitious – just not in a big bucks / world domination way. We’re motivated by working with clients on interesting projects where the objectives are clear and where we can form small, effective teams. This cuts down on the politics and admin, which ultimately means we can focus on delivering work we’re proud of, and achieving results that make a difference to clients.
Whatever the communications brief we’re flexible, working with organisations on both a retained and project basis. Some of our clients have worked with us for more than a decade – using us as an extension of their in-house team. Others turn to us at regular intervals for the delivery of finite campaigns that will create a short, sharp burst of publicity. Tell us what you need and we’re sure we’ll come up with the goods.
For more than a decade, the MayFifteen team has been helping companies communicate effectively with key stakeholders – both internal and external. Experts in communication we use our insight and analysis to develop strategies to inform and motivate audiences that reflect commercial objectives, reinforce brand values and can help make a difference to the bottom line.
Using our understanding of how the media works we build lasting relationships with journalists on behalf of our clients, helping them secure column inches in print and build a presence online that raises their profile – in the right way. Working with our clients we deliver persuasive PR programmes that offer a good return on investment – and we always get excited about the results we achieve. We are currently working on some case studies to show you some of our recent work. These will be online soon!
When it comes to PR, it pays to be prepared for the unexpected. We work with organisations of all shapes and size to identify crisis scenarios and create robust communications procedures that can be put into use should the worst happen. We also act as a gatekeeper for clients, liaising with media contacts so the core team can focus on getting the issue in question in hand.
In the past we’ve provided crisis support to help handle industrial accidents, restructuring programmes and IT infrastructure system failures.
In a busy marketing communications department, it’s easy to channel all of your efforts externally and forget about employee engagement. We’re adept at devising materials that can help organisations maintain a dialogue between management and staff: intranet announcements about company, product or CSR-related news; PPTs about sector specific issues; and internal newsletters. We also provide support around change management programmes.
If you are puzzling over a critical piece of marketing communications collateral or struggling to establish the correct tone of voice, then why not let us help. Over the years we have written compelling content for websites, customer magazines, newsletters, features, whitepapers, case studies, reports, awards, brochures, speeches, presentations, proposals and more.
Do you need to build a presence online using social media channels? Do you want your organisation to dip its toe into Twitter or start making ‘friends’ on Facebook. If you aren’t sure what to do, we can help you get social, assisting with the creation of accounts; the formulation of a delivery strategy; and – if you need it – practical assistance with tweets, status updates and general engagement issues.
When it comes to search engine optimisation (SEO), you need to choose your words carefully. Our experts possess plenty of SEO experience to help our clients’ websites attract more visitors, organically. Our SEO services include:
Effective PR campaigns need to be multi-faceted and integrated with other marketing activities for maximum impact. Alongside social media and press relations, we offer a range of PR services from the creation of feature length articles and media training to advice on PR photography. We also have trusted partners across the wider marketing mix that can deliver branding and design, web development and advertising support as necessary.
We’re pragmatic, professional and honest – and we can turn our hand to promoting any product, service or business. We’ll always go the extra mile…
