PR For Profit – How To Use PR To Generate Leads And Make Sales.

  • This free guide will show you how to strategically use PR to generate leads and convert sales. 
  • You’ll also learn how to ensure your PR wins are converting into tangible business results.

About Me

When I first stepped into the world of Public Relations, I was filled with self-doubt. As a young PR executive, I questioned my own abilities, ideas, and even my capability to pitch a captivating story. I felt like a small fish in a pond filled with glamorous and authoritative figures, wondering if any journalist would pay attention to someone like me. But let me share a secret with you: I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Through perseverance and a genuine passion for the craft, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery. I invested time in nurturing relationships with journalists, honed my ability to uncover fascinating story angles, and gradually found my groove in the PR world. Along the way, I faced rejections from the press, but I quickly realised that they were valuable lessons woven into the fabric of the process.

However, what truly fueled my spirit were the moments of triumph. I celebrated extraordinary successes, securing coveted features in glossy magazines and even landing slots on popular daytime TV shows. These achievements became testaments to the transformative power of PR.

Now, let’s talk about you and your aspirations. If you believe that exceptional publicity is out of reach because you consider yourself a small fish in a vast pond or fear your brand may be too “vanilla,” it’s time to shift your perspective. I’m here to assure you that remarkable PR results are within your grasp. Whether you yearn to elevate your brand’s visibility, establish your expertise in your industry, or drive sales and generate leads, you’ve come to the right place.

Don’t let self-doubt hold you back; instead, embrace the limitless possibilities that come with strategic PR. It’s time to make your mark and realise the growth you’ve been dreaming of.

What My Clients & Students Are Saying…

If you are a small business and want to up your PR, Amy is your girl.”

“I’ve had two articles in Derbyshire Live and one in Glamour. I also was on BBC Radio Derby this weekend – they approached me out of the blue! Also talking to a journalist about workplaces providing support for sleep-deprived employees too.” – Child Sleep Consultant.

“Last week the tech correspondent at The Times emailed me to ask me to comment on the new TikTok well being features, and I was featured in The Times on Thursday. Very happy and very excited!”
