“We have worked with garlandpr for two and a half years and in that time they have become a key part of our overall team. Whether it has been working on our apps buddhify and Sleepfulness or our other projects such as Kara, a mindfulness tool for people affected by cancer, Holly, Ann and the team have been integral to our ongoing success.
“High-profile coverage such as our appearances in the Independent, the Evening Standard, CNN and Entrepreneur.com have been key to growing our profile which not only supports our overall sales but critically also leads to partnership opportunities thanks to the increased visibility.
“As a small core team we find garlandpr’s emphasis on proactive media engagement, high quality level of communications and creative ideas for campaigns a key part of our overall operation.”
“Legalesign retained garlandpr in August 2016 and have been very impressed by their creativity and process. Their questions during the induction process were penetrating and demonstrated a desire to get a 360-degree understanding of the product and its market.
“The key messages developed in conjunction with management have been very helpful in how we describe ourselves and our product. Our Social Media presence has been massively enhanced with the help of the weekly Social Media Calendar which garlandpr oversaw. For example, our twitter following is up from 30 to 473.
“We have gained national press coverage on the BBC and been featured in the Scotsman. This coverage is solely due to the creativity of garlandpr and their ability to sense and develop a story.
“In summary, we have found garlandpr easy to work with and effective.”
“As the Campaign Team for the cross-industry Garden Industry Marketing Board (GIMB), I’m happy to say that Holly and her team are always a pleasure to deal with, providing a professional, dynamic and reliable service with a can-do attitude.
“The GIMB was established three years ago and comprises the leading trade associations and key suppliers operating in the garden industry and the aim is to promote gardening to a younger consumer demongraphic. Following a review after year one, an intensive and rigorous selection process for a new campaign lead was conducted, and garlandpr was successful and were immediately appointed to run the Board’s consumer-focused campaign ‘Love the Plot You’ve Got’.
“In 2016, the second year of the campaign, garlandpr focused on driving online awareness via social media and they have successfully increased the number of followers by 41.5%.
“Holly and her team have introduced a number of innovative initiatives including a forward planning social media calendar, engaging garden suppliers with gardening media opportunities and the creation and launch of ‘Al Fresco Fortnight’ – a timely, themed promotion encouraging consumers to eat outside in the fortnight starting on Father’s Day.
“Holly and her team are enthusiastic and fun to work with, and always have a very positive attitude towards working with what can sometimes be a challenging and demanding Board.
“I have every confidence that together we will succeed in taking the campaign to an even higher level in the years ahead.”
“Garlandpr worked with Adoption UK on Adoption Week Scotland, the first national Adoption Week for Scotland that was funded by the Scottish Government. With little time and a very small team to work with, garlandpr enabled us to get coverage on a very large scale, including interviews on BBC Radio Scotland and STV. We received newspaper coverage in national papers such as the Scottish Sunday Times, Scottish Sunday Express and the Aberdeen Press and Journal.
“Both Holly and Ann are friendly, open and easy to work with and understood very well our guidelines of the message we wanted to get across on what can be a sensitive subject. They were very open to ideas as well as sharing their own.
“The PR involvement added great value to our event, by exposing it to people well beyond our usual audience and identifying ways in which we could make the subject accessible and interesting to people who would normally not be talking about it.
“The expertise from garlandpr allowed us to do this in a way that our very small voluntary organisation would not have succeeded in without their support.”
