You’ve heard what we have to say but don’t take our word for it, this is what some of our clients think …

"We have worked with Footprint for over six years and during that time they have proved themselves to be extremely creative, focused, reliable and flexible. Their excellent copy writing and press contacts means that they have managed to generate a significant amount of press coverage for our properties, achieving maximum impact with a modest PR budget. They are a professional team, dedicated to securing the very best coverage for their clients and I would thoroughly recommend them."
Lucy Dhiman Sales & Marketing Manager, English Heritage's West Territory

"We have worked with Footprint for at least 14 years, and in that time we have always been very satisfied with the quality and quantity of the coverage gained for the relatively modest budget we have to play with. In our industry, it's a pretty tight knit group of people who make a difference and so choosing what to say and where to say it is vital to us - Footprint and our account manager Bridget Summers have always done that extremely well. Always available but yet never too much - a difficult balance to strike."
Stuart Godfrey, Managing Director, Radius Systems

“The figures are stunning and a testament to everyone’s hard work, especially Nicola, Jay, Ivan and his assistant. Thank you for organising something that got us onto national telly! Everyone who came to JellyFest enjoyed themselves and were hugely entertained and educated by Jay, Ivan and co, who worked flat out to deliver a spectacular sight on Saturday when all the magical creations were lined up. Many thanks again to everyone involved.”

Mrs Alison Constantine, Visitor Operations Site Supervisor, English Heritage, Brodsworth Hall & Gardens

“The best National Archaeology Week coverage yet!”
Dan Hull, Head of Information and Communications at The Council for British Archaeology referring to Dennis the Menace mentioning the week on the front cover of The Beano!

“Might I take this opportunity of thanking you most especially for all your enthusiasm, help and support during the Art Fund Prize campaign. I have greatly enjoyed working with you and I know that our paths will cross again in the future.”
Gaye Blake Roberts, Director, The Wedgwood Museum, Art Fund Prize 2009 winner

"I have been very pleased with the work that Footprint did for us on the Festival of History. They delivered the results we had hoped for, giving us an excellent return on our marketing investment. The team's knowledge and experience across the marketing spectrum proved invaluable; they have an in-depth understanding of different marketing trends and the way that various audiences react to different media, and were able to deliver an accurately targeted and successful PR and advertising campaign for us, keeping a close eye on our ultimate goal - driving ticket sales.  Throughout the process, they were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable, always completed tasks on time, no matter how tight the deadline, and interpreted our brief fully and accurately - most unusual in my experience for most agencies! Their work is of a very high standard, and very customer-focused."
Nicole Dobbin, National Events Marketing Manager, English Heritage

“Their professionalism and commitment to their clients is total. Le Mas Candille’s positioning as an exceptionally high quality entrant into the market in the South of France is very much down to their efforts”
Mark Silver, Owner, Hotel Le Mas Candille, Cote d'Azur, France

“Acting as our marketing team, Footprint has been an integral part of the success of both The Academy and Academy Spa over the last 12 years. The team has played a key role in the strategic development and marketing of the business which has seen us achieve year on year growth in turnover and profitability. Their enthusiasm, dedication and professionalism shines through in everything they do. They are a pleasure to work with and their knowledge of the leisure industry is second to none.”
Philippa Shackleton, Managing Director, The Academy Group

"We really love dealing with these guys and everything they do! We are so impressed with their superb creative and marketing ideas. One of the biggest problems is coming up with great one-liners - great copy, catchy headlines, etc - they have an obvious strength here. They seem to just pop out these great ideas and wording to match!!! Excellent and exciting work."
Clare Matthews, Co-Founder, VitaMan

“Flender in the UK (now part of Siemens Automation & Drives) has worked with Footprint for over 10 years. This long relationship is something that we value, since our business requires a PR company who understands our people, products, company and services in order that the correct message is passed across. We have an excellent relationship with Footprint, who are always professional and can be depended upon to more than fulfil the requirements of the task. Our industry has experienced many storms over the past decade and we have weathered these better than most, with our marketing communications playing a major part.”
Nick Garthwaite, Managing Director, Siemens Flender Mechanical Drives

“Working with Footprint just makes life easier – they understand the industry so well and how to achieve the best results. It’s such a relief to be able to hand over whatever needs doing – from sorting out newsletters to organising journalist visits and analysing client databases - and know that it will be dealt with professionally. Footprint always goes the extra mile and they are great fun to work with too.”
Clare Ezard, Manager, Academy Spa

And it is not only our clients that like working with us; here are some comments from members of the media:

"For 20 years off and on I have been the Business Editor of the main daily newspaper for York and North and East Yorkshire, now known as The Press. Throughout that time I have been in regular contact with Bridget Summers receiving from her numerous press releases, largely relating to William Birch & Sons, one of the oldest and best established building firms in the region. Unlike many press releases, they have been a pleasure to receive - well-written, fact packed and guided by a genuine news sense. Should I need to take the story further - as is the wont of us journalists! - Bridget has always proved herself to be intelligent, efficient and professional. She holds the line well between pleasing her client and being obliging when it comes to my journalistic needs - and as such both sides share a trust in her."
Ron Godfrey, Business Editor, York Press

“I wish everyone who had content in the journal was so easy to work with!”

Rebecca Bursnall, Journal Editor - Gas International, Engineering and Management Communications Manager, IGEM - Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers

"I have always found Footprint - and Jay Commins in particular - to be most professional, offering an excellent service to the media. The service we have received on behalf of your clients sets the standard for others to follow. Your releases are always greeted with a highly positive response from our newsdesks as they are so well targeted and executed. First-class writing, allied to no annoying calls asking if we have received the release/are likely to use it - a God-send in these highly pressurised days! English Heritage - among many other clients - must be thanking their lucky stars they chose you to handle their account."
Martin Edmunds, senior editor with South Yorkshire Newspapers

"You are just so organized! I wish everyone we dealt with was like you!"
Nicola Shannon, Editor, Professional Hairdresser

“It is not often that I write to PRs to say thanks (perhaps we should say it more often) but I thought the press pack for English Heritage was superb. Well done and thanks.”
Alan Powell, Editor, Sheffield Newspapers.

“Why is it that you and your colleagues are so damned efficient!”

Keith Newton, Travel Editor, Middlesbrough Evening Gazette

“The pictures and copy you provided were ideal! The information pack was very useful and, to be honest, I haven’t got any suggestions how to improve it!”
Nick Proctor, Deputy Editor, Whitby Gazette
