Kulwinder Singh Rai...

Your one-stop shop for 
effective media relations...


Here comes the elevator pitch...

I help manufacturers, distributors and businesses raise their profile (and sales) by creating compelling communication strategies that get their products and services seen and talked about in the media that matter. 

 Influence and reach are everything in the modern world.  I help maximise both, across all communication channels, in the most cost-effective way possible.

SERVICES

 

MEDIA RELATIONS     

Always on-call, I become a ninja-like  extension of your team. Reactive when I need to be and pro-active as a matter of course, I'll get your key messages across in a positive, persuasive and professional manner. Emphasis on professional...


 

PRESS RELEASES 

Guess what? As an ex-editor I know exactly what the media are looking for in a press release (spoiler alert: it's ALWAYS news). I'll create compelling ones that capture their attention and that they'll want to open, not send straight to trash. 


 

SOCIAL MEDIA

Managing social media channels is a business must do but there's no denying it's seriously time-intensive. Let me at it. I'll write engaging content for you, amplify it on your favourite platforms and manage your interactions with bloggers, influencers etc.

 

ACTIVATIONS

LOVE partying. I can help you create a seriously memorable event that will put your product (or service) front and centre with the media that matter. As ever, planning, creativity and collaboration with the right partners are the key to success.


 

WEBSITE MANAGEMENT

Need an inquisitive, well-informed self-starter to create pages of compelling content in the correct tone of voice, uploading it all, as and when necessary, via your CMS? You know who to call...

 

PITCH DECKS

Presentation not quite hitting the mark? Need a script to go with it? The Google Translate version you've generated reading clunkily? Attach it to an email to me and press send. Will fix ASAP...

 

CRISIS COMMS

Do the key members of your company have any clue what they're supposed to say and do when the proverbial hits the fan? If not, you need an agreed crisis response plan... I can help you develop one.    

 

PRINT

I've written, edited and helped design squilllions of adverts, newsletters, brochures and magazines. Give me a brief and I'll manage the entire process, letting you get on with other important stuff.    

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS

Find yourself yawning reading your product descriptions? , Chances are your customers will feel the same way. I can write ones for you that will keep everybody awake. Or even mildly engaged. Can't say fairer than that. 

 

EDITING

You've written some great content but something tells you it isn't reading right. No problem at all. Just sling it in my direction and I'll bang it into shape for you, no questions asked. Our little secret.

 

JOURNO STUFF

Being a fully-trained, time-served former journalist and editor, I'm a dab hand at generating compelling news articles, features, case studies and so on. I know how to get a reader's attention. And then keep it...

 

REVIEW MANAGEMENT

Having spent more than 30 years assessing consumer products, benchmarking them against their competitors, and - as a comms pro - helping the good ones get fab reviews and awards, I think I'm pretty good at it.


About...

WHO AM I? 
Bit existential but ok. I'm Kulwinder Singh Rai, a former national newspaper journalist, chief sub-editor and magazine editor. I used to scribble for publications such as The Evening Standard, The Sunday Times, The Oxford Mail, The Daily Telegraph, What Video & TV, What HiFi? and Supercar Classics. 

MORE HISTORY PLEASE...
Well, I trained to be a journalist in 1989 (the year that Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web), working full-time, for a decade, on some of the best technology and automotive titles before going freelance for national magazines and newspapers.

Having been on the receiving end of PR efforts both dazzlingly good (rare) and tediously indifferent (the norm), I decided I could do much better.  So in 2002 I established my PR consultancy and got to work.

Seems to have gone pretty well. Have been forging lasting relationships and getting ace coverage for clients ever since. Guess I'm doing something right...

YEAH, YEAH. SO WHAT'S THE OFFER TODAY? 
Simple. I’ll formulate and execute a PR strategy that will successfully bring your brand, products or service to the attention of the key media and opinion-makers that influence your customers. I'll cut through the noise and get you the positive coverage and exposure that you deserve.

GOT A DECENT LITTLE BLACK BOOK? 
The best in the business. Quality contacts across all the key media. Go on, try me... 

SKILLED AT MEDIA RELATIONS? 
You bet. I'm passionate about establishing,  nurturing and maintaining relationships. And having been part of the media world for many years, I've got a pretty good idea of what floats people's boats and what doesn't. Trust me, that makes all the difference.

BET YOU CHARGE THE EARTH?
Nope. I deliver exactly the same results as a large agency does (still love you guys though, keep the commissions coming) but charge a fraction of their rates. 

Whether you need help on a particular project, are looking for longer term assistance, or just need short-term support for your existing marketing/PR function, I can help. I got two strong arms...

ANYTHING ELSE? 
I’m exceedingly flexible, will always go the extra mile and will NEVER blow smoke up your proverbial. No BS tolerated, absolutely zero ego...

OK, I'M IN. SO WHAT'S THE FIRST STEP? 
Get in touch for a consultation (my contact details are at the bottom of the page). 

After we've had a chat and I've had a chance to do a bit of research, I will give you a 'no bull' appraisal of your current communications strategy and show you how your outcomes rate against those being achieved by your competitors. 

Then I'll tell you what I can do to help you reach your business goals quicker (than the other guys...)
