6 Ways Our PR Can Help Your Social Enterprise


First of all, we create a customised PR Strategy for your social enterprise, working closely with your team


Then we develop a clear and detailed step-by-step Action Plan, organising tasks into a simple schedule. This helps ensure your PR campaign is fully implemented and delivered on time


Then we start work on key marketing content such as new or revised pages for your website, which cover the key messages you want to communicate.


We roll out a media campaign using expertly crafted news releases and our wide network of media contacts. We support this media work with a social media campaign plan to extend your online reach.


We can also provide graphics, videos and e.g. online project toolkits, which can be shared with your funding or operational partners and other stakeholders who may want to support you


Finally, we measure the success of your campaign using Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) like audience reach, web traffic, social media engagement, and the monetary value of the campaign.

Inis Communications has been helping community, voluntary, charity and social enterprise bodies to raise their profile effectively for over 18 years.

Website Content

Quality website content communicates clearer messages. It also boosts your rankings on Google and other search engines.


Better Media Coverage

Good PR is a more authentic and organic way to communicate key messages than ads. Our quality news releases & effective PR will secure coverage worth far more than the cost to you.
