We are Democracy

If you’re looking for a full-service PR agency on the edge of everything new and different, then you’ve found it.

We know that your brand democracy has the power to transform your business, which is why our ever expanding black book of contacts spans influencers from twitter and tumblr to the Times and The Sun.

The scope for public relations is exploding. You need a partner agency who can develop campaigns that work today AND tomorrow an agency that knows what the evolving landscape can deliver for your business.

Our clients choose us because they want their voice at the heart of brand conversations. They stick with us because we deliver a clear strategy and tangible results.

If this sounds like your business, we’d love to talk.

We’re already helping Baxter’s, webuyanycar.com, Channel 4 and Knowsley Safari Park. If you’d like to find out how we can get people saying the right things about your brand then pick up the phone and call 0161 881 5941 or email jennifer@wearedemocracy.co.uk

“Democracy brought in the right partners with CTI Digital and Dutch Creative to produce a visually impressive site that delivered on the functionality. The supporting blogger outreach campaign built links to help with Google ranking and widen the reach of the campaign.
