MLPR for over 2 years have surpassed all our expectations as a PR company. What I love most about Marie-Louise is that she is very upfront from the start about what she can achieve for you and what she can’t. From my past experiences with PR companies, they can promise you the world which often leads to disspointment. Marie-Louise has always delivered what she promised-and more.
The team are such a delight to work with, they are very organised and efficient and very understanding with how hectic small companies are and work with you accordingly. They are extremely good at positioning your brand in the right places and are sensitive about how your brand is percieved. Its not just sending receiving samples with them , its constant progress and new ideas’, and they are always thinking ‘outside the box’.
We have had outstanding Press with them as well as very successful launches over the last 2 years. I highly recommend them as a PR company for a businesses who want a very high-quality bespoke service.
“MLPR offered personalised attention and dedicated service. They successfully increased the awareness of our brand’s contemporary collections in the UK with consistent and regular press coverage and profiling features.
Marie Louise has invaluable experience and solid knowledge of the fashion and jewellery PR industry, both her and her team were very organised, professional and enthusiastic. Overall, an absolute pleasure to work with and would definitely recommend!”, Heidi Thompson, Creative Director, Carat* London
When we engaged with Marie Louise Pumfrey and her agency the brands in our portfolio had very particular remits – an aspirational projection for Fiorelli and increasing brand recognition for Nica and Modalu. Marie Louise and the team demonstrated a clear understanding of our situation and worked with us on the unique vision for each brand, providing a consistent and thorough approach, being straight forward to work with and excellent results.
With their confidence and experience in the world of PR, they targeted aspirational publications, working relentlessly and professionally to build strong relationships and promote our brands. They understood the power and importance of local press for Nica and this has led to wider brand recognition and national coverage.
Our partnership has been a really effective collaboration, delivering results and creating a solid PR platform for our brands. It has been a pleasure working with their enthusiastic and supportive team and I would recommend them to anyone who needs to build their brand profile.
Marie Louise has been a key member of the team working on Seasalt’s PR activity over the last couple of years. She has always been very positive and we have gained coverage in many high profile titles thanks to her involvement. Her agency’s creative approach has enabled Seasalt to tap into new audiences and we have seen fantastic results from our campaigns with substantially more coverage achieved.
We enlist the help of Marie Louise and her team at MLPR to help us with our two annual press days and have done so for the past three seasons. As a small in-house PR team ourselves, we’ve come to rely on the fantastic level of support they offer; helping to organise our guest list and RSVPs, offering up advice and ideas and tirelessly networking on the day to maximise every media opportunity.
Like a very comfortable (and glamorous) pair of slippers, they deliver every single time, integrating instantly into our team and getting us the results we need. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
MLPR have provided the brand, and me personally, with a huge amount of support and insight since we started working together. Marie Louise and her team understood the label immediately and have worked tirelessly to get some of the most exciting and solid press coverage and I couldn’t be happier.
We took on the agency to launch our new website www.irisfashion.co.uk and generate traffic, awareness and customers to the site. The campaign created real impact which drove traffic to the site and generated online sales generated from the media coverage. Additionally we had customers calling or coming into the store to buy pieces.
The campaign also targeted new customers to the brand and built word of mouth and the profile of Iris – both for the shops and the online store.
MLPR has worked extremely hard to increase our exposure in the short time since we have worked together. We have had several published press pieces in our first couple of months, opening us up to a far wider audience. MLPR make a great team who are both professional and personable.
They clearly have a great relationship with the press and a brilliant address book – journalists who we had been courting for years are suddenly far more interested now they know MLPR are involved. The team are a delight to work with and have removed the stress of this side of the business as they have proved reliable and proactive in equal measure.
I received a call rom the CEO of one of the UK’s most influential sports brands. He said, “your three pages of coverage in the Sunday Times Magzine for Thomas Lyte is the best piece of Public Affairs I have ever encountered.” This press was achieved by the creative PR agency, MLPR. In our time working with MLPR they undoubtedly put Thomas Lyte on the media map. A delight to work with, uniquely combining classic press relations with a capability to think laterally and deal with the new media landscape.
The account team at MLPR know how to generate media coverage, having gained over 50 different brand stories and product placement pieces for Thomas Lyte in key publications in their first year. I believe it would be difficult for any PR team to match their media relations talent
