I have been using the services of Emma from Semaphore PR for the past 3 years and see her as an integral part of my team. Emma brings a different set of skills to the business, specifically strategic, creative thinking and the ability to sell my Company far better than I ever could! Because she thinks differently to me, she has on many occasion come up with a creative plan to market the business which is refreshing and innovative.Her strengths were particularly appreciated last year when my book ‘Build and Grow’ was published. Her knowledge of the PR industry was invaluable. On my behalf she engaged the support of many valuable organisations who in turn promoted the book. This led to the book achieving the prestigious accolade of being an Amazon Number 1 best seller for 2 weeks!I would have no hesitation in recommending Emma, (and indeed have on many occasions) to any small business looking for flexible, cost effective PR and marketing.
I have been so pleased with the newsletters that Semaphore have produced for me. The one before last gave us a fantastic response. I had one front cover available seven people requested it in a couple of hours as a result of the newsletter. This month we had a special offer ‘buy one get one half price’ as long as advertisers responded within a short period of time and again the response was overwhelming. If you need a wizard with words then Emma is your lady. Emma has been producing our newsletters for a number of years now and I have been very very happy with the result.
We have put Semaphore in touch with a couple of our clients for whom HR issues had also become external communications ones which was a cause for concern for our clients and their reputation. In one instance the issue had already come to the attention of the national press and in the other a legal matter had the potential to get into the public arena. Emma helped both clients manage the external communications, prepared Q&As, press statements and worked with national journalists to ultimately keep the matter out of the press. Both our clients and we were pleased with the work Semaphore did and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.
Frontier engaged Semaphore Public Relations in 2015. We were already an established company but had neither the skill or expertise in developing or maximising our media presence. Emma was brilliant at taking the time to understand our business, ethos and goals. She has been instrumental in helping us find other professionals to develop a new website and promote the great work of our staff. We continue to work with Semaphore as part of our core team as we develop and grow.
Emma has looked after the marketing for Furnishings Studio for a while now and I am always very pleased with her newsletters and blogs she puts on the website – she has the knack of explaining design ideas and reasons for them in a way that a person who is not familiar with the subject can understand it perfectly and it all makes sense. Also she writes in a way that I would write the newsletter – everyday language, cutting out the technicalities and giving it just that little bit of humour!!…..Newsletters have a very good ring to them when written by Emma!!…..I would strongly recommend her to any business that is in need of marketing.
