Hi, we’re Seriously PR – a creative agency for travel and tourism brands who need more attention from customers.

Looking for a team of expert trouble shooters? It’s time you got more attention from customers and the resulting increase in brand awareness, sales and positive visibility.

PR has changed and so have we. Today PR is a hybrid of marketing, media relations, SEO, brand and content strategy.  Let’s talk about how we use these tools to reach more people for you.

Are you a hotel struggling to meet customer expectations?  Read about The Mystery Traveller now.

Want to talk about getting results right now?  If you’re fed up of PR fluff, it’s time to talk to us.

We partner with Tourism South East and Experience Oxfordshire.  We work closely with The Tourism Society, Institute of Travel and Tourism, ABTA and Visit England.

How We Work

Our campaigns are about taking your customers on a journey – from that first Google search and reading about you online, to exploring your website, making a booking and sharing their stories on Facebook.

Our campaigns are not about coverage numbers for the sake of a figure on a monthly report.
We structure all activities around our own simple 5 step CAM model – it’s based on the customer journey and how people make a purchasing decision.  It means that everything we do is targeted towards your business goals and getting more attention from customers.

We keep you informed of progress and success, and we measure everything we do at each stage. It might not be what you’re used to from a PR agency, but it’s more simple, we get better results and we will help you to exceed your targets.

More about CAM

All of our campaigns start with a brainstorming and planning session – it helps to make sure that we get started having considered all of your best bits, challenges and key objectives.

From there, everything we do fits around the five key phases a customer goes through when they make a buying decision.

This means that we can slot in the right things in the right places – beautiful features in glossy magazines, informative content on the right websites, advice via email marketing, inspiration on your blog…. everything we do is designed to encourage your customer to buy from you, and come back time and time again.

Press Office

Doing it differently

Feeling a bit at odds with what you want from your PR team?

Big? Small?  Digital? SEO driven?  We know there’s too much to think about.  Start why this.

  • 1. We want measured results

    PR should be measurable, accountable and results driven.  Highly creative yes but matched with strategic objectives and growth.  Want more footfall in December?  Then your creative campaign has to show festive numbers.

  • 2. We want to be listened to

    The discipline of PR is a great combination of story telling, creative thinking, industry awareness and an ability to be a step ahead.  That’s nothing without your insight, views, objectives and goals. Combined, you’ve got a winning campaign.

  • 3. Working with bloggers is doing what for my business?

    This can go two ways.  It can be a tick in a box or it can be an exciting, strategic and creative way of reaching exactly your target audience via the right means with the right message.  Influence is a word used freely.  Make sure it’s the right influence in the right place.

  • 4. Press days, press trips, what works?

    Both have their ups and downs.  It’s down to the message, audience and offer.  Don’t host an event for the sake of it.  Don’t insist on getting press ‘in the room’ if you can get results by engaging in other ways.  Don’t send people to the other side of the world unless the bookings you get off the back on it will pay for it 5 times over.

  • 5. I've never heard of that website

    Big isn’t always beautiful. You dream of being on the front page of Conde Nast Traveller but actually your customers have never picked up a copy in their life.  However, they are reading Cereal Magazine.  Not convinced?  Wait until you see the new enquiries coming to your website.

Shaun Bowles

I couldn’t ask for anyone better than Seriously PR to work with. I have always had a problem quantifying value from a PR company but I can honestly say Seriously PR is a valued addition to our business, creative and professional at all times understanding the core values of our business and delivering what I consider an exceptional service. As with other independent businesses flexibility is key with constant changes a focus and the team joins in our flexible approach to business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Seriously PR to any other business.

Jo Thoenes

Having been on the receiving end of press releases for the best part of 15 years, and knowing what attracts me to some stories and not others, I was interested to find out how agencies like Seriously PR get it right time and again. They revealed that it wasn’t a dark art, but instead a great eye for opportunity and the ability to utilise all the avenues available to you. The fact that Catherine and her team wanted to share these tips proved that it doesn’t have to be cut throat, hostile and aggressive – its about working with the right people in the right way, every time.

Seriously Creative Networking Events

Each month we host a networking event at Howbery Park in Wallingford for the creative business community. This isn’t like most events you’ve been to, this is a lively roundtable discussion amongst PR, marketing, web, design, SEO, social types about campaigns, communication, creative challenges, technical things – all sorts – people go away having learnt something new, having met new and interesting people and feeling inspired. This is a free event, you just buy yourself a coffee – and maybe someone else should you particularly like them. We sometimes provide cakes.

“I loved the energy and chemistry in the room today, it was the best non-networking event I’ve ever been to”
