As a startup founder, you start with a blank slate and no brand awareness when you think about designing a PR strategy for the first time; quite the daunting task compared to the relative comfort of structured digital channels with a clear ROI.

Although a challenge, starting from square one is an incredibly exciting and unique opportunity to both forge your brand’s reputation and grow your business. Indeed, with an effective PR strategy you can:

  • Build a brand with a strong narrative and powerful story.
  • Get reach and awareness on a far greater scale than paid channels.
  • Be prepared both for when you hit stormy seas, and need to capitalise on media opportunities.
