Thank you for visiting Clarke Associates at the Old School House on the edge of Birmingham. We’re a friendly, determined team with one objective in mind: to enable our clients to communicate effectively with their target audiences – no matter who or where they might be. This is how we do it.
The backbone of many communication campaigns, to us PR is all about building awareness, creating a reputation and then protecting it. We use PR to get the right targeted message delivered to the right people at the right time through the right medium. Our strong journalistic skills continue to be at the heart of effective PR.
Insight, consultation and engagement
We measure, we research and we monitor. We believe that before speaking, we should first listen. In that way, we understand what people think, how they react, what they'd like to hear – and how they'd like to hear it. It’s a strategic approach that translates intelligence into communication and engagement. We believe we’re one of the few consultancies to deliver in this way in the Midlands.
If PR is about creating awareness, social media is the way to build communities, networks, supporters – and create dialogue. We advise on the most appropriate platforms, the right way to measure and to monitor – and how to make the most of the opportunities, consistently and concisely.
Creative, design and branding
Design is an integral part of our communications mix. Whether it is online or in print, a website or a brochure, good creative design will always stand out. So too with brand development – which is why we have developed several innovative techniques to enable organisations to help build an effective, distinctive brand.
We are extraordinarily well connected. Over the years, we've made it our business to be involved, to be networked and to be engaged. In consequence, clients benefit from our extensive range of contacts at all levels and our ability to open doors and make introductions. They benefit also from our market intelligence, our understanding and our knowledge.
