Monday the 1st October – our 8th Birthday and it’s only 84 days till Christmas…. Where has the year gone?

SMPR had a busy but eventful September, especially in terms of our own personal success! Scooping up two BestFor PR rankings was definitely a highlight here at SMPR and we certainly took the opportunity to shout about it.

We hope you enjoy the update. Don’t forget to subscribe to the blog by e-mail or RSS to keep up to date with all of our news, events and social media updates.

BestFor PR Awards

Construction PR

We are extremely proud to announce that SMPR received TWO rankings at the BestFor PR Awards this month! Not only did we manage to scoop a gold ranking in the construction category, but we also managed to achieve a silver ranking in the National PR Agencies category which is excellent work from all of the SMPR team and we couldn’t be happier with this result!

Nigel Iskander, Head Judge of the BestFor PR awards said about SMPR:

“Simply Marcomms’ award entry and campaigns really impressed the judging panel as a whole, resulting in them gaining an outstanding gold and silver award! Their tailored campaigns demonstrated not only exceptional client understanding, but also measurable results, really showing how they increased their client’s online profiles and went above and beyond their campaign brief. Overall Simply Marcomms’ innovative and pro-active approach led the judges to rank them so highly.” 

As well as these emblems, we also received two awesome certificates which will definitely be up on the SMPR office wall very shortly!
