Who needs PR?

Good question. Here's a few people who do:

  • Charities with research they want to get out there

  • A small business that's got a great new product ready to go

  • People who have messed up. Badly

  • People and brands who want to get, or maintain, a good public image

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Loads of people, really. It's not just for high-flyers and it's not all fluff, or smoke and mirrors. Done right, it can be of massive value, helping you reach more people and get your message out there.

 

Why me?

There are loads of PR agencies out there, so it's a fair question. What are you getting from me that is different?

My name is Neil Mckeown, this is my site, and I am probably as removed from the stereotype of "a PR" as you can get. 

I took the long road

I got here via stints as in-house PR at the University of Greenwich and Millwall FC (18 years between them). Before that I was a journalist. Before that I did a load of jobs:

  • Bartender and waiter in New York

  • Warehouse worker

  • Retail 

  • Putting up steel fences in a sewage farm for one unforgettable week of a heatwave (all UK)

If I'm working for you, I'm all over it. When I send something to a journalist I'm sending it wrapped in my - and your - reputation. We have to make it immaculate to justify bugging people who get hundreds of emails a day. 

I combine traditional and digital PR work to help you make a splash. I learned motion graphics/animation because it can make your brand stand out. If you are a charity or a small business I can do things like this for you - it'd cost double to hire a PR person and an animation one. With me, you get both

I'm also mustard in a crisis. So, if you want great copy, innovative ideas, and a mania for getting you the best results, please get in touch. 

This picture is a stock "PR' pic used to break up the text. It's called "stand-up meeting". Why are they not seated? This is deranged behaviour.
