Last year alone, over 660,000 new businesses started in the UK. But statistics show that in three years, about half of these will no longer exist.

Strategic, creative public relations (PR) can help make sure you don’t end up on the wrong side of these statistics.

It can help get you and your business in front of your target audiences, make you known for all the right reasons and – most importantly – present opportunities to help you grow and develop your business.

PR and marketing agencies charge thousands – money that you can’t afford to spend during these vital early days – but now thanks to PR Unlocked PR training and coaching there is an answer.

The online PR course PR Unlocked covers three key areas:

1

How to develop a bespoke strategy to make sure you don’t waste time or money carrying out activity that isn’t going to boost your business

2

How to successfully carry out PR activities from media relations and thought leadership to influencer marketing, awards and events

3

How to measure and evaluate the success of your PR activity, as well as maximise the impact and unlock new, exciting business opportunities

Meet the founder


Hi, I’m Claire Gamble – a PR expert with over 12 years' experience working in the industry. As well as the founder and creator of PR Unlocked, I'm the MD of PR and marketing agency Unhooked Communications.

I've worked with companies of all shapes and sizes in sectors as varied as construction, home interiors, education, fashion, health, technology, professional services, art, entertainment, retail, and charity.

From launching ecommerce sites and managing international press offices, to putting on creative stunts and making business owners thought leaders in their fields, the last 12 years have taught me a lot about using PR to help businesses develop.

But more than that. Working closely with CEOs, MDs and senior decision makers, I’ve realised there’s one key factor that separates those who  successfully unlock the power of PR and those who struggle.

There are those who are open to exciting opportunities and eager to take advantage of the new relationships, projects, collaborations and deals that targeted PR will present.

Then there are those who see PR as a box ticking exercise and don’t have the mindset or business set up to go beyond the media coverage and award wins to truly benefit from these potentially lucrative and creatively fulfilling business adventures.

My mission with PR Unlocked is to use my years of experience and training to help startups and small businesses carry out their own PR successfully, and to identify and take advantage of the business opportunities that will arise as a result.

You don't need to spend a fortune on PR agencies and consultants in the early days. You're the best person to tell your business story -  and with the PR Unlocked online PR and training course, I'll help you tell it in the most effective way possible.

Because the more visible you are, the more opportunities you'll create.

You’ve already taken the bold move to start your own business – so let’s work together to  make your business journey as interesting and rewarding as possible by unlocking the secrets to PR - and unlocking exciting business opportunities along the way too.
