Promoting your business through the local press can be a tough job.
We are often approached by business owners who are keen to get their name out there, but who have tried and failed to achieve publicity themselves.
At KLC, we have more than 21 years’ experience of working for and with newspapers and so we know what they want, how they want it and when they want it and can deliver the copy which will make the headlines.
All you have to do is spend a few minutes talking to our journalist, approve the copy and leave the rest to us.
Here are just a few recent examples of where we have helped our business clients to get their names in print…
KLC journalist Kelly tries her hand at cocktail-making
Life as a journalist brings with it a wonderful array of opportunities and experiences.Our journalist, Kelly, enjoyed one of them recently when she was asked by a local newspaper to write a feature which can be used in the coming weeks as a pre-Christmas article.She spent time at an Essex restaurant where she was taught how to expertly put together the most colourful and tasty cocktails.The article, written by our journalist, will show readers how to easily create these delights in time for the festive party season.The feature will be shared on this page when it has been printed.
Did you know we carry out restaurant reviews for local newspapers and magazines?
Our journalist regularly visits eateries in and around Essex and writes honest reviews to help readers to decide where to spend their hard-earned cash.
The latest trip saw our journalist visit Tutti Tuscan Grille, in Braintree, Essex, to write a report for The Essex Enquirer newspaper. The restaurant was so pleased with the opportunity for publicity, they threw in a competition, too!
Journalist Kelly goes head to head with editor Paul in the kitchen
Our business is all about having good relationships. Our stories regularly make it into print in local publications because we have a good rapport with the journalists and editors who decide what the pages will be filled with. We also know how to put together a good story and what will get their attention and please their readers. When we were invited to do a cooking challenge by the Radisson Blu hotel, at Stansted Airport, we knew it was an opportunity to do a little bit of PR for ourselves. We spent the morning hanging out with the editor of the Essex Chronicle newspaper, having great fun going head to head in a cooking contest, but it was also good to help the hotel’s own PR company to secure a whole page of wonderful coverage for their new menu at the New York Grill Bar restaurant. Take a look at this week’s Chronicle newspaper coverage…http://www.thisistotalessex.co.uk/Radisson-Blu-Hotel-grilling-challenge-raises/story-18789519-detail/story.html#axzz2RTWyzEvb
