PR and marketing in Essex

Our sector experience includes education, health and legal PR, public sector communications, hospitality marketing, public relations for the construction industry, events and clients in retail.

Our clients in Essex include the East of England Co-operative which relied on our event management support to deliver a tea party for over 70s and under sevens to mark it’s seventh Producer of the Year competition.

This brought together a local primary school and a residential home for afternoon tea, showcasing jam and sandwiches – the produce of two Essex producers shortlisted.

Another client is Essex-based charity the Charlie Watkins Foundation, set up by Harry Watkins after his twin brother, Charlie, tragically took his life in March 2017.

Our work has included securing national publicity for their online mental health platform Chat with Charlie, which is funded by donations.   

Prominent was shortlisted at the CIPR Pride Awards for the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern region 2018 in the Not for Profit category for its work on the Charlie Watkins Foundation.

Another award-winning piece of work in Essex revolved around British Baby Box which introduced the 80-year-old Finnish tradition of baby boxes to the UK.

The company, run by two mothers from Essex, approached Prominent after six months in business looking to raise awareness of the brand, increase web traffic and connect with the grassroots audience – new mums.

Our work had a significant impact growing visitors to the website by 327% and increasing social media followers by 550% in a six-month period.

During the same period we secured 36 pieces of coverage in local, national and lifestyle media, worked with the company to develop publicity surrounding charitable partnerships, expedited wholesale discussions with some of the UK’s biggest retailers and secured exposure from bloggers, celebrities and journalists.

We won a Gold award at the CIPR Pride Awards for the Anglia, Thames and Chiltern region 2017 in the Low Budget Campaign category for work with this client.

Meanwhile, the client won the Innovation award at the English SME Awards and was a finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2017 – both award entries we wrote on their behalf.
