Our Startup Publicity Programme **Tailored specifically for Startups**Getting good publicity and PR for your project / startup can be a costly affair, especially if you go direct to a Marketing / PR agency, whose typical clients are established businesses, with much deeper pockets. To level the playing field a tad we have devised a number of cost-effective publicity services for startups to make it both easier and more importantly, affordable to tell tell the world about your startup.
