PR firms promise the earth but seldom produce the results to make the outlay worthwhile. They boast about having thousands of \"contacts\" and make bold claims about generating media coverage and column inches.
But the reality is different. The vast majority of these firms employ \'specialists\' who have never, and probably will never, work in real journalism. The truth is that most are media \'luvvies\' with little, if any, experience of the industry.
But Palamedes PR really is different. Our editorial stable comprises award-winning news, feature and travel journalists, and copywriters with experience at some of London\'s largest firms. Others have worked for Lonely Planet, the Guardian, Sunday Times, People, Telegraph, Mail, Mirror, the Mail on Sunday, and a string of magazines.
We don\'t have tens of thousands of \'contacts\'\' we have friends and colleagues in the media industry who we have worked alongside day after day for more than a decade.
So if its exposure and publicity you\'re after in national or regional newspapers, consumer or trade magazines, or on radio, TV and the internet, we can almost certainly help.
We don\'t do \'blue sky thinking\', provide \'solutions\' or rely on other meaningless buzz words. And we don\'t talk bullsh*t - and refuse to employ those who speak it. There are no hollow promises either. If we don\'t think your idea will make the grade, we\'ll say so and work with you to find another, more newsworthy angle.
Put simply, we know what to do and we know how to do it well. This is about a transparent and value-for-money service offering quality ideas, quality writing, and quality coverage.
Our experts have promoted everything from simple start-ups to some of the UK\'s best-known brands. With more than 30 years\' experience, our specialists have helped hundreds of small businesses punch way above their weight.
The team includes an award-winning journalist whose scoops have made headlines in every national newspaper and leading items on TV news channels including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky and Channel 5. He won the coveted Press Gazette Reporter of the Year award has worked at the Sunday Times and People newspapers in London.
Our copyrighter has overseen dozens of major campaigns in a highly successful London-based career spanning more than a decade. And our photographer has worked for every national newspaper including the Sun, Mirror, Times, and Mail.
We also have a stable of passionate freelance writers, who specialise in film and TV scripts, holiday guides, sport and adventure travel.
Together, we have built an outstanding reputation for our professionalism, reliability and value-for-money service.
We continue to work with editors on a daily basis and have an extensive, insider knowledge of the media industry like no one else. And that means businesses like yours get the publicity they deserve for less.
