You may be wondering why there are now condoms splashed all over my blog. But actually, I've a very good reason. Now, I haven't contributed to my 'Creative Campaigns' series in a while. I blame the hustle and bustle life, combined with my incapability to write about anything else once I get one idea set… Continue reading Creative Campaigns #11 -Durex’s Game Of Thrones Marketing
I'm an old soul, everybody I'm close to knows it. I'm 21 but I'm not an avid drinker or partier. I'm much more focused on, and interested in, my career than getting drunk all the while which is the stereotype typically inflicted on my generation. I'd self-claim that I'm old beyond my years. If not… Continue reading Instagram Are Testing Hiding ‘Likes’ – Here’s Why I Think That’s A Good Thing

April Fools' Day has rolled around for another year and now I'm working in the heart of public relations, it hasn't been as well received from me as previous years. While I was studying, I was a huge fan of April Fools' Day stunts, but that now I'm working within the industry - I'm a… Continue reading April Fools’ Day 2019 – The Best (And Worst) Efforts

The saying goes that if you make a joke after the clock strikes 12, then the joke is on you instead. But how about exerting your efforts days before the first of April? That's bad luck for sure, right?… Continue reading How Much Effort Should You Be Putting Into Your April Fools’ Comms?
This fortnight's #CommsSchool homework is to share your blogging habits with the community. As well addressed by Stephen and Marcel in their Webinar on Tuesday, it's vital to keep on writing, and to populate your blog regularly. Otherwise, what's the point? But, how do you find the time to work a full-time job, go to… Continue reading #CommsSchool Homework – My Writing Habits
It's naivety to think that anything the Kardashians or the Jenners do is accidental. You've heard the saying 'the devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder' and it's entirely true. The Dash-Jenner PR machine is tireless and is one to be truly admired. I'm not a fan of their lifestyle, but I'm sure in awe of… Continue reading How Far Would You Go For Publicity?
Influencer marketing is very closely tied in with PR. And don't get me wrong, it can be an extremely valuable tool - if it's done right.
