The Hertfordshire-based PR and digital marketing company has been shortlisted for six industry awards.

Strand PR is a finalist in six categories of The Drum Recommends Awards for Digital 2021 and will be up against agencies from across the country in the prestigious competition.

The categories which Strand PR is nominated in include ‘client service’, ‘digital content strategy and creation’, ‘creativity and innovation’, ‘service delivery’, ‘social’ and ‘strategic thinking’.

This year, the awards will be hosted virtually on Thursday, October 14, 2021, from 4pm, with the winners being determined through ratings provided by customers of each shortlisted agency.

The Drum Recommends Awards for Digital, judged by senior bodies from brands such as HP, Walt Disney, Pinterest and Gymshark, celebrate teams that specialise in digital services and campaigns across the marketing and communications industry.

Managing Director of Strand PR, Laura Pearce said: “We go above and beyond to deliver exceptional service for our clients, and while we do this to deliver results, rather than for recognition, we’re delighted to be nominated in not just one, but six categories.

“We’re a dynamic and flexible team and when we start working with new clients, we completely immerse ourselves in their business, understand how they work and what they want to achieve. I think this thorough approach together with our strong work ethic, our creative talents and the successes we have achieved for clients is why we have been nominated.

“We’ve always had incredible feedback, but to have been shortlisted for multiple awards is such a huge honour. Knowing that the nominations and winners are driven by our clients makes this recognition even more special.”

Established in 2012 by Laura Pearce and based just outside Royston in Barkway, Strand PR is a flexible and dynamic PR, communications and digital marketing agency that invests its time helping businesses communicate key messages to their target audience in the right way in order to deliver better results.

Laura has single-handedly grown the business from scratch, now working with the likes of national challenger banks and international prototyping firms. She, and her team, has also helped market companies from the personal finance, retail and hospitality sectors.

In the early stages of the pandemic, Laura and her team continued to offer a bespoke and outstanding service to their clients to help them achieve bigger and better results, even launching a free helpline.

One client said: “Laura is a superb professional, full of great ideas for developing our strategic planning with regard to raising our profile and making us much more widely known and highly regarded within our industry.”

While another added: “If you want a lot of good quality enquiries then Strand PR is the company for you.”

The PR, communications and digital marketing agency will be celebrating their ten-year anniversary at the end of next year.
