Consumer tech PR
The consumer tech PR team has a passion for technology and knows how to create high impact content that engages consumer audiences across traditional, online and social media.
Our consumer tech PR campaigns have launched brands like Jabra and Humax, propelled them to pole position and kept them in the media spotlight, year-after-year. We build consumer mind-share by spotting and maximising media and market opportunities that drive sales and build long-term success.
At the heart of the consumer tech PR campaigns we have run for brands like Nero and Pioneer is a creative approach that grabs the attention of journalists and target audiences alike.
A wealth of consumer tech PR experience
Underpinning all the consumer tech PR campaigns we run are our great media contacts which help us get your brand in front of the people that matter. Our consumer tech PR team is speaking to gadget, lifestyle and national journalists on a daily basis fulfilling product requests and pitching proactive story angles to keep our clients’ products in the forefront of consumer consciousness.
Finally, the foundation of any good consumer tech PR programme is a comprehensive product reviews programme. From software to gadgets to TVs, we have vast amounts of experience running product-focused PR campaigns to support our client’s retail distribution strategies, raise brand awareness and help drive consumer sales.
"The Humax FOXSAT products are the best-selling Freesat boxes on the market and we believe that the hard-working, hard-hitting PR campaign played a key role in helping us secure this market leadership position. The approach has continued to work exceptionally well, as Humax enjoys massive media coverage and accolades."
