What we bring to the table:

Distribution and reach

Ramify has launched a content and distribution service – RamifyPRO – to expand and strengthen your brand’s reach to our audience of high level agency and marketing executives.

Media contacts

With nearly three decades worth of experience in PR in the advertising and related industries sectors, you can imagine they know the journalists really well. And, thanks to their work on their broader client base, their contacts extend to lifestyle, environmental, news, general business and IT media.


We’ve been doing PR for nearly 30 years, and Cathy has been writing for far longer (she started working on Marketing Mix in the late 1980s); they know what the media want, and they know how to get it to them in a professional manner.

A learning curve, not a treadmill

Far from being bored by content creation and media distribution, we’re constantly embracing new experiences and technologies. We understand that media today requires a different voice, a different tone, a different approach.


Affordable, fixed fees – no surprises.
