I have worked with Bev and Elliot from Simple Marketing Consultancy for a number of years on many different projects. The most recent project has been on raising the profile of Chattertons Corporate and Commercial team.
Historically PR and profile raising had been undertaken by the fee earners themselves or with the internal marketing team. But as this was fee-earner driven, it was never high on the priority list when conducting deals.
We engaged Bev and Elliot with a specific brief, to help issue PR on all deals completed by the department. They introduced a simple process and structure to ensure that they had advance visibility of deals and were able to help us prepare in advance. This resulted in many more press releases being approved and ready to go with appropriate photography as soon as deals completed.

In addition, their insight on what would and wouldn’t be interesting for the business media, how to tweak messaging so that media would be interested, and the right place to target our press releases was invaluable in helping to ensure we focused resources.
I can honestly say that Bev’s and Elliot’s work produced a great return on investment and increased our profile in the region. We went from having no particular presence to an almost overnight position of being “on the map” for Corporate work.
Within a very short time, I received multiple emails and enquiries off the back of this increase in profile as well as requests for meetings and coffees. This in turn has led to further work.
I would highly recommend working with Bev and Elliot and would not hesitate to put their name forward to any of my contacts. Their straight-talking, professional approach allows clients to understand what will and what won’t work and ensures a clear strategy on where and who to target to get maximum return.
