Morgan Lovell

Shepherd PR aren’t like any other PR agencies. They’re completely on the ball, proactive and just a delight to deal with. I highly recommend them.

They go beyond ordinary PR services and really understand how PR supports not only the marketing programme, but our whole business.

They add a ‘Northern’ touch to public relations. Instead of long lunches and Martinis, it’s guns, guts and whiskey!”

Dawn Gibbins MBE

Shepherd PR helped me put my business not only on the national stage but international stage too.

The sensational PR coverage generated major enquiries for us, boosted our image as the world’s leading seamless flooring company and made us a company of desire.

It also generated so many applications for jobs as our public profile was so positive.

Shepherd PR also think strategically. They challenge your ideas and come up with creative ones that get you noticed. Thanks Jane and all at Shepherd PR!”

OeAD Housing Office, Vienna

When we first met Jane Shepherd a year ago, her inspiring enthusiasm caught us right away. Jane opened a lot of doors for us, got us in touch with British stakeholders from the worlds of architecture and the building industry, and helped us establish a public profile with British social media and magazines.

Jane also introduced us to important contacts at educational institutions and boosted our visibility with our target audience. Her numerous press releases, leaflets and social media posts were always compiled in a highly professional manner and resulted in broad coverage, an impressively high number of press cuttings and a surge in website traffic.

Communication was particularly warm-hearted, and the contact to Jane Shepherd and the members of her agency was extraordinarily cordial and professional.”

Property Care Association

Working with Shepherd PR has resulted in a cultural shift within the Property Care Association.

The team has helped us understand the need for first-rate promotions and public relations and they have delivered this time and again.

Their willingness to invest effort to understand us and the challenges we face in our business has been invaluable. Couple this with an attention to detail, patience, expertise and a bit of hand-holding and the result has been effective, well targeted and very successful PR.

Shepherd PR have become part of our operation and are very pleased to have them on board.”

Their well-written press releases hit the right spot with business editors and gained a great amount of coverage.

The publicity helped boost the number of bookings at a big business event and played a central role in making it a sell-out.

In the first year they secured a 1,200% ROI, making a huge impact on our external profile. The second year reported an even higher figure.

As a spin-off, we have become the ‘go-to’ association for media calls, which has in turn helped develop both our brand and reputation.

National Flood School

I was attracted to Shepherd PR by their existing client list. We are in similar industry sectors to some of their other clients and their testimonies were very encouraging.

Previously I’ve found that PR companies don’t make the effort to understand our business and hence can miss the point, but I’ve experienced quite the opposite from Jane and her team.

They’ve really got under the skin of the business and put some work into understanding our sector.

The first videos and press releases have been of an exceptionally high quality and I look forward to extending our relationship over the coming years.”

Arford Steel

Arford Steel Profiles was entering new territory when we approached Shepherd PR with a view to helping us to get noticed (for the right reasons).

Jane’s experience in dealing with manufacturers immediately shone through and she was able to create an imaginative and viable action plan which included series of press releases and e-shots along with a new company video to help revitalise our tired website.

We thrashed out the message we wanted to convey and how best to deliver it.

Without exception, everyone from Shepherd was enthusiastic, professional and focused on delivering the very best possible product – making a potentially trying experience very positive.

It all made sense in the revenue generated by the campaign and our six-month PR plan showed a healthy return on our books.”

Managing Director, Arford Steel Profiles

Dr Laura Cohen

We value the work that Shepherd PR has done with us.

We appreciate the preparation that Jane puts in and her searching questions to ensure a story or project is focused and targeted at the right audience.

We have had such positive feedback from a range of people about the video Shepherd PR produced on our work.

Jane knows what our priority areas are so she is able to give us opportunities to express our views that we otherwise wouldn’t be aware of.

The Shepherd PR team helped us get up to speed in social media very quickly – we find our twitter feed so useful in getting our messages out.”

By raising the profile of the professional register within the pest management industry and related sectors, the team has helped us to increase membership by almost 10 per cent since 2014.
