“Very good things about Mantelpiece PR
They are efficient and do what they promise in a timely fashion.
They are very nice - I look forward to my dealings with them and I never feel hassled or bullied as I do by some other PRs.
Press releases are accurate, interesting and relevant: I don't want silly or fluffy.
They can spell and their grammar is correct - on a bad day I have been known to correct other PRs' press releases and send them back.
They are creative and imaginative in their approach to promoting clients/products.
They go more than the extra mile in providing different and interesting angles, and back up material from all sorts of different sources.
