We have always had a global, open view on the world and after more than 16 years of trading from central Manchester and Chester we have moved further south to Shropshire.
Even when based in the North West, our clients have always spanned the UK, from Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland for example, across to Belfast and down to London and the South East. We have even worked across the water in Norway, Switzerland and Brussels, so we are no strangers to serving our clients’ needs wherever that should be.
Over the past 16 years we have seen a massive change in the way media relations and marketing are delivered; we can still remember having to send (usually black and white) photographs to newspapers in the post. A few years later it was possible to fax information through to newsdesks, although the photos still had to be posted.
Later still, technology had advanced enough that some journalists had an email address and in the early 2000s we even introduced live website updates from an event we were working at – that was long before Facebook and Twitter, if, like us, you can remember those days.
Thanks to technology, it is possible to manage a successful PR, marketing and communications business from almost anywhere in the country and what better place to have an office than Shropshire, one of England’s most beautiful counties?
Since setting up in Shropshire, we have been busy making links with local businesses that can support us, but we won’t be leaving behind our friends in Manchester. The very same technology that means we can work in Shropshire means we can also commission work from suppliers around the country, so it’s a win-win situation.
Our two latest clients – London Capital Credit Union and charity COFEPOW – can be assured of the same high quality service from us as any Shropshire based business looking for effective public relations and communications support.
So here’s to a new chapter in the Ethos public relations story.
