Helping clients such as...
“We didn’t really know which route to go down when it came to our PR activity – we were mainly considering different agencies, however we had heard negative stories about some agencies not being able to deliver the right results.
After speaking with CommsPeople we decided to go down the ‘Boutique agency’ route and the results have been fantastic. The team we worked with was engaged, dedicated, and most importantly helped us get the word out about Penfold. We still get compliments on our PR success today.”
Pete Hykin – Penfold
“As a new business, we knew we wanted to establish ourselves quickly within our sector with a PR and Digital Marketing strategy, however we weren’t really sure where to start.
After speaking with the CommsPeople team, it made things so much clearer – they gave honest and open advice as well as some great matches with freelancers. We’ll definitely be working with CommsPeople again to support our business as it gets off the ground.”
Travis Street – Coolbytz
