OUR HISTORY

20+ Years of Experience

ITPR was established in 1990 and over these past 26 years the world or marketing and PR has changed drastically and so have we. Starting as a pure public relations organisation we have since launched our B2B marketing agency, The B2B Marketing Lab and partnered with Be Found Online (BFO) and now offer the full marketing, SEO and PR package.

We are a consultancy…not an agency!

An agency just does whilst a consultancy, advises and does. We go that extra mile, beyond what agencies do and draw upon our experience to provide proven solutions to client problems.

Skilled at increasing client presence within key target media, cutting through jargon and articulating business benefits to increase sales, our talented bunch of B2B Technology PR professionals consistently advise and execute the will of our clients.

We are proud of the fact that we are a B2B Technology PR consultancy, not merely an agency and do not shy away from the challenges that mindset brings.

More than just a client/supplier relationship, we position ourselves as a trusted partner that shares our best practice guidance and advice on all things PR, Marketing, Digital and SEO related. Not to mention achieving top quality copy and Press coverage.

As partners, we work alongside you as an extension of your resources, not a supplier kept at arm's length. We regularly share ideas and get buy-in to an approach that delivers real measurable results. The confidence we have in our ability to deliver means that we will not shy away from telling you when we believe that an activity will not produce a return.

THE MISSION

Always Striving For More

ITPR has worked a broad range of B2B businesses, all of whom use technology in some way to solve business problems. This has included IT systems integrators, IT consultants, hardware vendors, mobile operators, software authors or resellers & distributors of technology.

If you’re looking for a B2B technology PR agency to deliver ethereal PR campaigns based on Advertising Value Equivalents, then we are not a good fit for you.

If you’re looking for data driven, thought leadership based B2B Technology PR campaigns, then we’re the team for you.

Our difference as a B2B technology PR consultancy is that our team has the experience and knowledge not just of PR, but of the wider elements of strategic B2B PR, social media management, inbound marketing, paid search advertising and search engine optimisation. We put PR at the centre of our campaigns, which then feeds the surrounding activity for maximum impact and, importantly, value.

This approach has enabled us to manage successful PR and marketing campaigns for clients across verticals such as FinTech, IT Security & Data Management, SaaS providers, Digital Marketing, Mobile, Retail and Hospitality, Manufacturing, Distribution & Logistics, IT Security, Education and IT Consulting...to name just a few.
