Words and Deeds operates a boutique PR service, providing content writing in the form of press releases, magazine features, news items, social media posts, etc., for small businesses and charities who may not be able to afford an in-house PR team, or expensive campaign, but who will benefit from expertly written text that successfully communicates their message to a target audience.
A quick online search will bring up costs for PR services ranging from £200 to £2000, depending on the size/name of the agency; and some agencies will want to deal with a whole campaign, and may ask for a retainer. As the owner of a small business and a supporter of charitable organisations, I am committed to offering a professional service charging affordable rates for all the work involved in producing high-quality press releases and magazine features (from research through drafting the article to distributing it to relevant media outlets). My charges to produce one piece of text, e.g., a press release, are between £40 and £90, depending on the amount of work involved.
If you want to put your business in the media spotlight – whether it be your successes, developments, campaigns, products or personalities – I can help. Contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org or: 07783 997129.
Why trust me with your PR?
* I have good knowledge of, and relationships with, the media, especially in the Cheshire and Merseyside areas;
* I have a good track record of having press releases and magazine features taken up by the media;
* I am committed to helping new/small businesses, social enterprises and charities;
* I was a Local Media Volunteer for a national conservation charity for over nine years, and am currently a Local Volunteer Communications Officer for a national wildlife charity.

I am currently working with the North West Rare Plant Initiative, e.g., writing news items based on their fieldwork: http://nwrpi.weebly.com/news.html
As Volunteer Communications Officer for Liverpool RSPB Group, I write up field trip reports for the group’s website, e.g., https://ww2.rspb.org.uk/groups/Liverpool/reports/475940/
In May 2019, I worked with a team of people in a number of countries to coordinate the 5th World Seabird Twitter Conference. This included proofreading website text and the submitted abstracts, which I suggested we collate into a printable booklet:
