What our clients say

 

Shortly before Covid hit, I met with Kirsty to discuss how J&PR could help us market our new retail business. 4 months later we can finally open our doors. We set about this business having done our market research but until you test your market, you can never be sure.

Kirsty and her team have put together a first class promotion for us and I have been totally blown away by the interest it has generated.

Our social media interest has increased by 15000% already.

But even more importantly, that interest is leading to enquiries and actual sales - the life blood of any business. I genuinely believe J&PR have pushed us three months ahead of target already. A fantastic business to work with and always there to help.

I was absolutely thrilled with the feature that your team produced and have seen a significant increase in the number of social media impressions of the finished article.

In particular, there have been 6k views of the article via my own LinkedIn page and I have also featured in social media promotions from the publishers and other featured Shropshire Business women.

All in all I have been delighted with the way in which your team portrayed both myself and the HR Dept Shropshire! Many thanks again for all your support.
