1284 offers a broad range of PR services to meet the needs of its clients.

From thought leadership to editing and designing annual reports, we help you provide a host of quality outputs.

One of the things we are most often asked about relates to digital content.

It’s something that we know very well.

Digital PR experience

1284 founder George Oliver led two newsroom digital transformations for Reach - the UK’s largest newspaper publisher.

He was Digital Editor at the Evening Gazette when it became the pilot for Reach’s Newsroom 3.1 digital-first publishing revolution.

The experience equipped him to introduce digital-first publishing at the Leicester Mercury, including the launch of LeicestershireLive.

As experienced and trained journalists, we have a deep understanding of the ethics and laws around effective online content.

Creating content for you 

One of the key things is to listen to your business objective, identifying a bespoke PR digital plan that is tailored to your growth strategy.

We have led content campaigns for audiences running to 100,000s of readers - and know it is essential to identify who you want to reach (and the best way to engage them).

It could be newsletter, social media, website, video, or search.

But it all needs to be executed with copyright, GDPR, and accessibility all firmly at the centre of campaign planning.
