PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION GOLDWe are very proud to announce that we have been ranked in two categories in the BestFor PR Awards 2013.

The hard work here at the SMPR HQ has paid off as we have officially received a gold ranking within the Construction & Property sector, and a silver ranking within the National PR Agencies.

BestFor PR allows PR Agencies across the UK to apply for a ranking, the applications are then independently judged and those successful awarded either a gold, silver or bronze ranking within the relevant table.NATIONAL SILVER

These ranking tables, which appear on the BestFor PR website, allow companies and organisations to select and contact leading PR agencies to suit the relevant sector, region or requirements.

Our MD, Kirstie Colledge said:

“This is great news for us and our clients in the Construction sector!  Our team have worked really hard to demonstrate the return and value of Social Media PR and Online PR in the construction industry.  These rankings are an independent stamp of authority and reinforce our position in the B2B PR marketplace”.

How can B2B professionals unlock the potential from Pinterest?

Pinterest is largely becoming one of the most popular and revenue generating social media platforms and in the last 5 months alone has grown its user base to more than 70 million. So how can marketing professionals leverage Pinterest and unlock the potential?

Pinterest is a great way to discover new blogs for your outreach campaign. The search functionality makes it easy to find relevant boards, pins and pinners. Each pin that is linked from a website is a potential site to get a link from.

In order for the platform to work in a B2B context is to make the most of your visual content. Including pinnable images in your blog posts or creating infographics is a sure way to generate traffics from Pinterest back to your blog or website.
