Hi Friend,

Feeling Ho. Ho. Ho? or Ho. Ho. Hum?

Well here's some extra seasonal sparkle for your Christmas inbox. Our gifts to you, in no particular order, are:

  1. A bottle of Veuve*
  2. The inside running on how to use PR to drive leads (see our blog)
  3. A crazy collection of Christmas ads. Because you asked. Actually just because!

(*To the person who spots the MOST mistakes on our newly Hubspot migrated website before 6pm today)

Slightly more seriously, PR is still one of the most effective tools in the financial services marketer’s kit. It builds trust through perceived third party endorsement, broadens your audience beyond your own networks and can help drive new leads to your website. Wait! Drive leads? How does that work? 

Glad you asked. See 2, above.

And I will see YOU in the new year :)

Seasons Greetings! And may every success find you in 2016 so there's no need to feel FOMO!
