Charlotte Moore – Smoothie PR

I’ve spent the last 10 years working in companies of all sizes, writing online marketing copy and social media posts while working alongside PR teams and fancy agencies. I saw the mega bucks big businesses casually threw at PR and marketing ‘gurus’ and there’s no way start-ups can afford to get that kind of help.

So, I made a plan. I worked in this bubble for long enough to soak up all the best PR and marketing activities going on around me, and then started a small business of my own. This way, I can be the PR superhero your fabulous food business needs, at a price you can afford.
