"Marketing is part of PR, so although you might not think you’re doing much, you’re probably doing more than you think."
This week I am joined by regular co-host Roy McLoughlin, and special guest Kevin Carr from Carr Consulting. Kevin has worked in the finance world for many years. Initially advising on mortgages at Nationwide, he then went on to be an adviser at LifeSearch, which quickly saw his role develop to include PR work too.
Kevin found that being featured in the press would result in clients ringing up wanting to talk to him for advice. PR isn’t just about the press though, there are many ways in which PR can help you and your business.

We also discuss awards. Awards can be great, they can get your name out there, can look great on social media and sometimes get insurers to take you more seriously too.

The next episode will focus on testicular cancer and I will be joined again by Matt Rann to talk about testicular cancer in relation to protection insurance and underwriting.
