Albrighton-based communications company, Cucumber PR celebrates its fifth birthday with five brand-new contractors. Run by a husband and wife team, Joan and Russ Cockburn, Cucumber PR has plenty of reasons to celebrate, after earning the contracts for advertising agency, M3, lifting specialist TotalKare, and the industrial experts Blum-Novotest, among others. Just in time for the company’s five-year anniversary, the new contracts mark a 20% increase in fees for the brand.
According to press releases about the recent acquisitions, all the new accounts will include some manner of strategic communication support, as well as digital media assistance, press office functions and more. The firm’s long-standing reputation for offering high-level media coverage is no doubt an important factor in its recent success.
According to the director, Russ Cockburn, it’s been a fantastic way to celebrate Cucumber PR’s fifth year in business, as they’re now on course for the best, and most lucrative year yet.
A Bespoke Approach to PR Communications
Cucumber PR say that they often find their clients are sick and tired of the insensitive approach to communications that comes from larger firms – so they want to deal with an agency that offers more personalized services. One of the things that make Cucumber PR so compelling for their clients is the fact that their media contracts reach across most of the UK, including trade and international press outlets.
The most recent five clients to join Cucumber PR’s roster have come to them in an attempt to raise their profile and support their business objectives in the years ahead with a no-nonsense approach to success. The organization notes that they’ve already achieved various major wins for their new clients, leading to new opportunities with the media.
Cucumber PR offers its clients a vast range of communication services to choose from, including copywriting, digital media strategizing, and press office functions. Additionally, the agency also works alongside a network of trusted associates to offer integrated marketing campaigns and video creation – two increasingly popular requirements in the modern world.
The Best Year Yet for Cucumber PR
Joan Cockburn, who comes to the organization with previous experience working as an account manager with businesses throughout the community, noted that Cucumber PR hasn’t tried to take a one-size-fits-all approach with their clients. They’ve spent the last five years developing the partnerships they have with a range of talented creatives and digital specialists to offer a bespoke approach to clients.
Cucumber PR believes that its most significant skills lie in the area of securing coverage from the media and delivering exciting copy to the community. The organization has been able to win a lot of accounts by bringing associates in when required to provide next-level services. Additionally, Cucumber PR has also offered more than 100 hours of free work to charities, local teams, and community groups in the area through 2017.
Cucumber PR now has some major campaigns to work on throughout 2018, including a celebration for the Arrow Solutions 50th birthday bash, and a press strategy for Aurrigo and their participation in the largest driver-less vehicle test in the world.
