Northamptonshire’s Premier PR Agency
5 years ago SEO and PR agencies were two completely different animals, but now, they’re increasingly entwined.
PR is about building a brand online or off, while SEO is more focused on building rankings by increasing the authority of a particular website, usually by building back links to it from other websites.
Now though, with Google looking for more brand signals to identify a strong SEO contender, we’ve evolved to offer an incredible combination of both tactics.
We combine the incredible customer-generating power of PR with all the signals that SEO wants to see in order to create an awesome, all-round online experience.
The great news about this is we’re able to get businesses, big or small, national coverage for the price of a typical SEO package.
Can you imagine the benefits that might bring? Let’s talk and show you how it works.

Northamptonshire’s Premier PR Agency
Digital and social media advancements have changed the media landscape completely and having a PR Agency by your side has become more crucial than ever for the success of a business, be it small or large, online.
The importance of PR online has increased considerably alongside the fall of traditional offline marketing.
Well-known brands such as PlayStation and Harry Potter spend little on brand-name advertising and more on PR strategies. The same is true for many entrepreneurial companies like yours. Business owners become popular and make their own niche in their respective industry many times through public relations and the associated media generated.
PR (Public Relations) can be dubbed as the communication in many ways with your target market. A PR agency can tremendously help your business by communicating about a new product, spreading news about your company, making a major announcement or telling stories that matter to your target audience.
Stories influence the way consumers and investors think and act and it can largely affect the success of your business. But in order to make the best of PR, you need to have a good PR agency by your side that keeps itself updated and current. This is where Dapa Marketing comes into picture.
Apart from being experts in the usual SEO techniques (which we like to keep a secret) the professionals at Dapa Marketing are also top guns when it comes to PR management.
We are an acclaimed PR agency who will target national and international media platforms to shape reputation, build brands and increase online visibility of your business.
Here, the team consists of PR experts, SEO specialists, project managers, a content team, and this collective makes us one of the best PR agencies in the area.
Our team works on developing tailor made PR strategies and tactics which directly support our clients’ aims and objectives. We begin by understanding what it is that they want to accomplish and immerse ourselves in their business and markets before combining the right channels and platforms into the PR plan.
This means that your business will be more accessible to the target audience and would generate more sales than you would have without a PR agency.
The Importance of PR for Increased Business
“If I was down to my last dollar, I would still spend it on PR.” Bill Gates
This itself shows how important PR is for your business. The success of your business depends on how well you communicate with your customers. This is why we exist.
At Dapa marketing, we understand the importance of PR management for your business. Public relations for businesses is powerful because it helps you get more exposure and it places you in front of your target audience.
Some of the major benefits of PR are mentioned below:
Raises Awareness About Your Brand
People always trust established brands. One way to make your business known and to compete with established brands is to send out your message by a third party such as a popular magazine in your industry, a high-traffic website, a respected influencer or social media superstar.
We at Dapa can prepare articles and press releases and send it to popular and high traffic websites in your niche industry to raise awareness about your brand or product/services.
Unlike advertising, a magazine mention of your service or a product review is not a direct sell so it comes out as a recommendation from a person that could be an authority in your niche like a popular finance blogger with hundreds of thousands of followers.
Every business has its very own unique brand message. People admire brands that have a relatable or compellable story. Proper PR management ensures that you carry your story wholeheartedly at every function you go to because that is why people remember you and your brand in the first place.
You can discuss your business objectives and key processes with us and our experienced team of writers at DAPA can prepare the best story related to your brand that reflects your company’s culture and uniqueness.
Helps Manage Reputation
Having trusted connections in the media is not always about free marketing but also about reputation management. In your business journey, you will face (but we hope you don’t) dreadful situations like an advertising campaign gone wrong or unsatisfied customers lashing out on social media about how bad your product or service is. In times like these, media connections can help you repair the damage through a press release or similar means.
As a PR Agency, we at Dapa monitor and analyse how our clients are perceived through the media and advice on the strategies and plans to address reputational issues. Our expertise includes managing negative and sensitive issues and creating positive PR to help repair client reputations where trust has been lost.
Help In Shaping A Likeable Image
Customers love friendly and community engaged brands. By maintaining a constant presence in your industry or being in front your customers’ eyes, you are creating a strong connection with your audience.
With a PR agency like Dapa, we will assist your business in establishing a connection with complementary, non-competing businesses and tastemakers in your industry space.
Paying for a magazine spread is not a bad idea if you have the budget for it. However, if you are on a tight budget, having friends in the right places can get you a full feature or an article mention on the same publication without paying loads of cash.
At Dapa, we will capitalise on the number of visitors with the help of our tie-ups with popular blog sites and expand the horizon for your conversion rates without burning a hole in your pocket.
Promote Brand Values
You can use PR to send out positive messages to your target audience that are in line with your brand image by using the language and ideas that your target customers understand best and respond to more positively.
Our content team at Dapa can come up with high quality content that intends on establishing an instant connect with your target audience.
Boosts Your Niche Authority
Getting featured on media outlets may appear to be simple to many but for a business owner, the effect could be massively beneficial especially if you are trying to own a niche.
Studying Your Competition Up-Close And Personal
As a general rule of thumb it is safe to assume that you are not the only one who spends time in making new connections. It’s one way of knowing what your competitors are up to, which gives you ideas on how to keep up with them.
At Dapa, our PR team will study your competition and help your company look more likeable, influential, and successful.
Do’s and Don’ts of PR Management
Do: Figure out Your Objectives
Do have a clear understanding of your company’s message. What does your company do? Clearly define your company’s brand, and its image as well. Once you figure out your company’s image you can determine which outlets are best for your conveying your brand.
Do: Choose the Right Social Media Platform
Once you’ve clearly defined your company’s brand, use social media to support your brand and convey your message. Refrain from using social media to voice opinions or display your personal life. Your social media sites should clearly convey your brand.
Do: Educate Yourself about Public Relations
The internet is a great place to start to learn about PR. You will undoubtedly find tons of information. Be selective and only do what’s best for your company.
Don’t: Hamper Relationship with Your Customers
Public relations are built on relationships. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you do not want to destroy relationships. No matter what industry you are in you will need people. Build relationships and avoid tarnishing them.
Don’t: Show Personal Feelings Online
It’s worth reiterating that you should leave personal feelings and opinions off your social media sites. There are tons of stories of people who said the wrong thing online and have had to apologise later on.
Don’t: Forget the Overall Goal
The overall goal of any PR strategy is to share your company’s message. If something isn’t doing that effectively, you should remove it from your PR plan.
PR has never been more meaningful than in this age of Google, the 24/7 news cycle, and a plethora of social media platforms. However, the main question is whether you should hire a pr agency or do it in-house. Well the answer is – you should hire a good PR Agency. A PR firm becomes an extension of your team while working closely with the rest of your company and pulls together the inputs of several stakeholders. These inputs are used to create a unified PR plan that takes into account traditional and digital media relations, social media, influencers, events, etc. Most importantly, a good PR Agency can assist the company to meet its business goals and objectives.
It clearly makes sense to hire professionals to manage your PR efforts. Just as you would leave surgery to a doctor and taxes to an accountant, if you are going to engage in Public Relations you should consider investing in a top PR Agency such as Dapa to be your communications partner. Your reputation depends on the choice you make.
