When it came to choosing a name for the new business, it took ages. It was harder than naming my children.
When you decide what to call your baby, you simply pick a name you like the sound of. You’ll look at the meaning behind the name to make sure it doesn’t symbolise anything terrible. And, of course, you’ll compare notes with your partner that neither of you went to school with a bully, worked with an annoying colleague, or, worse, had a romantic fling with someone who shares the name.
Manchester-based architect Lisa Raynes has been announced as one of the candidates for the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) National Council. Lisa is the only candidate standing from the North West region. And at Unhooked Communications, we’re proud to work with Lisa to help promote what she’s standing for during her campaign.
Small business and freelance finances is a big topic. How much to charge, advice on negotiating and payment practicalities are always key questions for small business owners and freelancers – no matter how long they’ve worked for themselves.
But small business and freelance finances isn’t a topic that you can cover in a single session. So after conversations with The Freelance Kit founder Nikki Kitchen and business coach Matt Essam, we organised another event.
Interiors, homes and design are key PR sectors for Unhooked Communications, so we’re thrilled to be working with The Gifted Few to support its rebrand and new website launch.
Over the last few months we’ve helped the online interiors business update their tone of voice guidelines to align with the refreshed brand, as well as supported with the content creation for trade brochures and supplier information packs.
Influencer marketing and online PR will be key activities over the coming months to help drive traffic to their new website and boost SEO. We’ll also help to promote the company’s bigger and better range of interiors and homeware products.
One of our charity PR and marketing clients, Forget Me Not, tasked us with organising its first ever Bark in the Park fundraising event for its new children’s hospice in Bury, Grace’s Place. As well as raise money, the charity event and associated charity PR, marketing and stunt needed to increase awareness and engagement with the local community. And after securing many regional and national media opportunities – including a unique opportunity with Channel 4 – it was a great success.

On 25th April 2018, PRs, marketers, writers, photographers, bloggers, creatives and business owners will meet at the Portico Library in Manchester for our one-off Creatives Unhooked event with Sara Tasker from Me & Orla. And we’re running an exclusive competition on the night.
A few weeks ago, Unhooked Communications and The PR Cavalry organised and hosted a GDPR event aimed specifically at PRs, marketers and freelancers at Ziferblat, MediaCity.
We were fortunate to secure two brilliant speakers – Steve Kuncewicz, partner at BLM in Manchester who specialises in intellectual property, media, privacy and communications-related issues, and Pete Moore, chief data scientist and founder of Look at your Data Ltd.
