Client feedback
Don’t just take it from us! Hear what Amanda Lee, Marketing Manager for Destination Plymouth has to say.

I worked with Pam and the team at Four Marketing Agency to establish high-profile PR coverage and relationships for Plymouth. Working across both Plymouth BIDs and the Destination Plymouth DMO for the city the team worked with us to identify and establish core national stories of interest and provided consistent and impressive results. Pam and her team provide genuine interest and insight into understanding the purpose behind messaging and activities and provide clear and practical plans to achieve results. This often involved liaising with multiple stakeholders to understand sensitive issues and tease out the strong messages. Pam and her team handled all of this excellently, and through our work together we saw a significant rise in national press coverage and recognition for Plymouth which continues to provide ongoing results. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Four Marketing Agency in PR support.
