  • We employ rigorous research, planning and evaluation techniques so you can be sure you’re getting the best possible return on investment.
  • We’d never let inexperienced staff loose on your business – you’ll solely deal with experienced consultants.
  • We’re small enough to care but skilled enough to have helped clients win national and regional PR awards and had our copywriting voted some of the best in the UK by the British Association of Communicators In Business.
  • We also offer publishing services and have delivered highly successful PR campaigns based on the books (both physical and digital) we’ve produced for clients.
  • Our team includes trained journalists who have previously written for titles spanning the Yorkshire Post to The Independent.

PR campaigns

Effective communications and brand management have never been as important as they are in today's 24/7 world.

Neil Anderson Media will work hand in hand with your organisation to ensure you stay one step of your rivals; we'll spot potential pitfalls before they happen and help you build and maintain a reputation and grow your business.


Few marketing tools, even in today's digital world, have the power of books.

Neil Anderson Media offers the full service - from clarification of the initial concept to getting it on the shelves of retailers and downloaded onto the tablets of potential readers. Are you an expert in your field, have something to celebrate or simply have experience that would be of interest to a wider audience? We can manage the publishing process from beginning to end.

Our award-winning copywriting skills can be used for any number of applications - from feature writing to blogging to keeping your Twitter account in full flight.

Crisis management

Reputation can make or break a business.

In the era of unregulated social media, it is now regarded as one of a company's single most important asset. We boast some of the highest level experience in reputation management in the region and have regularly come up with solutions which have turned damage limitation exercises into PR success stories.

Event management

Events offer fantastic opportunities to boost your brand and secure new business.

We've launched radio stations, books, new businesses, restaurants, bars, social housing schemes, shopping centres and more. We've secured audiences to attend events, journalists to cover them and every minute detail associated with them.

Photography and video press releases and short films

A picture tells a thousand words - it can also ensure your story ends up on the front page rather than in the recycle bin. We employ the services of experienced press photographers and camera people to ensure we capture the correct images first time. From short films for You Tube to visuals for your website, you're in expert hands.
