As PR and communications consultants there are certain questions we are always asked by small and medium-sized business owners (SMEs).

These almost always include:

1) How do I use social media to help my business?

2) What is the best way to get editorial coverage in my local newspaper?

3) How can I raise the profile of my business with a small budget for PR?

This website will provide the answers to these questions, as well as providing plenty of top tips on how to promote a small business without spending much money.

You will find guidance on developing and managing social media channels, whatever industry or sector you work in.

Platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, You Tube and LinkedIn can be incredibly powerful in promoting what you do as a business.
