We provide proactive media relations activities, drip-feeding regular news releases, providing industry comments and writing editorial features for the regional business media. We also provide copy for Simpkins Edwards’ website and printed marketing materials, including case histories that showcase client successes. In addition, we regularly conduct interviews with selected clients of Simpkins Edwards, from which we create profile stories for the ‘Client Focus’ feature of the company’s customer newsletter.
