Skout PR, the Manchester based, B2B PR company is enjoying its status as a growing player in the PR market after a successful start to its second year of operation, which has seen new clients and the appointment of new staff.
Skout has seen its revenue increase by 120% in the first half of 2011 compared to the same period last year and has moved into new offices at Broadstone Mill in South Manchester.
Growth has been fuelled by some exciting client wins in two core target markets, national b2b technology firms and North-West based enterprises. These include Redstone, one of the UKs largest dedicated IT infrastructure providers. Hazel Grove based MAN Diesel & Turbo UK and Plasma Clean, a Manchester University spinout undertaking major global expansion.
Rob Skinner, managing director, Skout PR, said, “After a profitable first year of trading it is fantastic to be on target for growth in year two. Our aim is to build up a communications business which leads through the quality of its work, never losing sight clients’ business goals and offering distinct and high quality communications services for organisations in the North West and in specific markets across the UK.”
In 2011 Skout bolstered its business infrastructure with the appointment of Chris Walmsley as social media and PR consultant. Recognising the changing communication landscape Skout is planning to broaden its digital and social media services to ensure that existing and future clients are able to be seen and heard across the full media spectrum.
With a new service offering in place and firm client foundations Skout hopes for continued growth throughout the year.
