We’d never worked with a PR agency prior to City Road Comms, but it’s proved a great decision. They’ve created so many interesting angles to promote our work and get us in ideal publications, while their web and social content also helps us engage with our audience more effectively. It’s a pleasure working with such a professional, responsive team.

We started working with CRC at the end of the 1st lockdown in 2020. We selected CRC as a small team who would work closely with us and help MPE build awareness as a consumer champion. From inception, CRC has delivered. MPE has benefited from regular coverage in all major publications; The Mail, Mail on Sunday, the Express, Times, Sunday Times, The Sun, Daily Telegraph and Radio 4. I am absolutely delighted with the results delivered by CRC. A final point, they are great people.

We entrusted City Road Comms with promoting the launch of Mynurva. Their use of research and data ensured we received vast amounts of relevant media exposure, which in turn meant consumers learnt all about our product, values and expertise. I’d highly recommend other early-stage businesses partner with this agency.

Our experience with the CRC PR team has always exceeded expectations. They understood our business and were able to create a PR strategy that optimised our GTM and exposure to the UK real estate market through strategic use of media. The team’s knowledge, relationships, experience and “can do” attitude have continuously delivered the results needed to support our business objectives and growth. I highly recommend the CRC PR agency to any (tech/proptech) start-ups or scaleups as an outstanding firm to partner with for your PR needs on the UK market.

FAQs

Public relations or PR is the practice of managing and circulating information to curate public perception of an individual or organisation. PR is an internally controlled narrative put out externally to the public. 

Targeted PR campaigns typically run over a 3-to-6-month period. Having said that, some campaigns can be extended for several more months based on media reaction and consumer interest. Everybody’s needs are different, from running a targeted campaign for a particular set of objectives to being an extension of the comms team – we work with you to create a plan that is tailored to your needs. 

First and foremost, we make it our priority to understand who you are and what you’re trying to accomplish. In doing so, we can create a tailored strategy that will work in achieving your outlined goals – whether this is repositioning you as industry experts, boosting brand awareness or increasing engagement within your audience.  

Clear objectives and goals are set out for every campaign, these are outlined with the client in line with what they are wanting to achieve and any objectives they already have placed. It is important to be clear on what exactly you want as a client – for example, if you want coverage, all coverage is not equal, so be clear on whether you want opinion pieces, editorial or just simply, company mentions, and in which publications. If you are unsure, we can work with you to establish a plan of action and goals to suit your company and needs.  

A senior account manager will always manage your account, and for the duration there will be consistent analysis of the running campaigns. Junior executives will be on hand to carry out research and help in the implementation of the campaign.  

You will always be kept in the loop of what is happening with consistent communication over the duration of the campaign.  

We specialise in tech, finance, and property. Since we work under the MVI umbrella, the latest trends in these industries are in our hands. With 20 years of experience in the publishing sector, we are perceptive and knowledgeable about the ever-growing media landscape.
