It’s just a simple idea to help others

“Running your own business is not easy, and keeping costs low is crucial. So I thought to myself… how can I offer lots of advice for a low monthly fee? Ta-dah, and September Exchange was born”

Daniel Nelson, founder of September Exchange

At September Exchange we believe that all good ideas deserves the attention that the bigger brands enjoy so often.

And it’s not a big secret why they do so well in the media and with the general public—it’s about having a great product and communicating it perfectly.

There is nobody better suited to tell the story of your brand, other than you.

We’ve been asking ourselves “if other industries can simplify the entry point, then why can’t we do the same with communications?”

So we set about packaging the specifics to building awareness, building a brand and communicating effectively so that we can send this information in a bitesize format on a weekly basis.

And that’s all there is to it, in-a-nutshell, a PR agency helping small brands and businesses understand how to better communicate to their audience.

“Tell the story of who you are with your whole heart”

Brené Brown, researcher-storyteller / magic pixie

Brené Brown studies human connection—our ability to empathise, belong, love. In this poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity.

What is PR?

PR stands for Public Relations

Every organisation, no matter how large or small, ultimately depends on its reputation for survival and success.

Customers, suppliers, employees, investors, journalists and regulators can have a powerful impact. They all have an opinion about the organisations they come into contact with – whether good or bad, right or wrong. These perceptions will drive their decisions about whether they want to work with, shop with and support these organisations.

In today’s competitive market, reputation can be a company’s biggest asset – the thing that makes you stand out from the crowd and gives you a competitive edge. Effective PR can help manage reputation by communicating and building good relationships with all organisation stakeholders.

The Chartered Institute of PR’s definition of Public Relations is:

Public Relations is about reputation – the result of what you do, what you say and what others say about you.

Public Relations is the discipline which looks after reputation, with the aim of earning understanding and support and influencing opinion and behaviour. It is the planned and sustained effort to establish and maintain goodwill and mutual understanding between an organisation and its publics.
