10 reasons why your business should work with Prominent

Grace Prominent PR 78

In business, choosing to take on an external marketing agency can feel like a huge investment and may not always deliver instant results.

But while it is undoubtedly a big decision to make – choosing the right agency can unleash growth for your business and unlock access to an entire team of experienced professionals.

As we continue to mark our 10th birthday celebrations, Client Services Manager Grace Harrison looks at 10 reasons why your business should work with Prominent.

1. We allow you to focus on what you do best – you aren't a PR expert but we are!

A lot of clients come to us as they want to promote their business but don’t have the capacity or know how to do it.

Working with us takes away that stress. Our team are experts in their field and know what it takes to harness the power of PR for your business – leaving you to crack on with what you do.

2. You get 11 members of the team with a variety of extensive experiences, usually for the cost of one or two employees

By working with Prominent, you are not limiting yourself to just one person, with one set of skills and one person’s capacity.

Instead, you benefit from our range of ever evolving skills and creativity. At Prominent we ensure you are given a delivery team that is best suited to the services you require – be that media relations, social media management or design.

3. We can be out and about 'on the ground' when you can't be

We are your eyes and ears and are always on the look out for topical stories, awareness days and key events that we can use to elevate your business and expertise.

Whether this is an industry comment after the chancellor’s budget, a feature for International Women’s Day or a networking event, we never miss an opportunity!

4. We are a 'one stop shop' for PR and marketing - everything you need under one roof delivered by your trusted team

From traditional media relations to social media management and content creation, we do it all.

Whether it’s a hard-hitting press release that sells your brand and its message, or striking graphics for your Instagram – the Prominent team have what it takes.

This means you don’t need to have multiple marketing partners. Saving you time and money.

5. We will get to know your business inside out and you'll feel confident knowing it’s in safe hands

We like to be viewed as an extension of your team rather than an external agency. A partnership needs to work both ways.

We often find that we can pass on our skills and expertise to our clients and their teams too.

An idea could be entirely your own, but we are here to help take it to the next level and include you along the way!

6. If you want to be in the media, we can get you in there

Our team of former journalists love telling your story and are on hand to sell it into the media when you have something to shout about.

We will always be honest with you and not waste time if we don’t think your news is news worthy – and will actively come up with fresh, engaging ideas that will excite today’s news editors.

We also know what makes for the perfect press photo that will bring your story to life on the page.

7. When things go wrong we are here to be your buffer and your safety blanket – we'll protect you and your business and keep you out of the media

Sometimes being in the press is the last place you want to find yourself.

Our Media Relations Lead will work hard to keep you out of it by providing a top-notch crisis communications service and ongoing reputation management where required.

We aren’t just reactive, but proactive – and will put plans in place before a crisis has even begun.

8. We'll help you get recognition for the incredible work you do - who doesn't love winning awards!

You may have already heard, but we have an excellent track record when it comes to award writing!

Our work with housebuilding client Cora for example saw them scoop five industry and regional business awards in 2023 – alongside another seven positions as finalists.

We work hard to identify opportunities for your business and work with you to produce first class entries.

9. We're nice people and we care – seriously!

I know it is easy to say this, but we really do care.

We are proud of the relationships we have built with our clients. We celebrate their highs and are here to support them with any lows.

A member of our team is never more than a phone call away to help.

10. I might be biased, but we're really, really good at what we do

I’ll let our clients speak for me on this one…. Here are a couple of my favourite testimonials from some of our lovely clients:

“The team at Prominent have put a great deal of time and energy into understanding the Church of England in Suffolk and this has enabled them to help us develop our reputation positively. 

“They are quick and creative, helping us respond proactively and reactively, with messages to reach our different audiences.” - Leonie Ryle, Communications Manager of Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich

"We have a longstanding relationship with Prominent Media as they deliver the creative solutions our school needs through their extremely effective media planning and advertising services.

“Their pro-active approach results in our message reaching the relevant parents, engaging with them and attracting them to attend our open day events throughout the year.

“I would not hesitate in recommending their services to any organisation." – Karen Sinclair, Pilgrims Pre Prep School
