Fifteen years is a long time in business. When our agency was launched as Shooting Star PR in 2006 no-one had ever heard words or phrases such as credit crunch, Brexit or Covid-19.
Yes, we’ve navigated through some choppy waters in the past 15 years, but we’re still here doing what we’ve always done: helping our clients to do business better by raising their profile and enhancing their reputation.
Since Kate Strawson and Jez Ashberry launched Lincoln’s first PR and marketing agency we’ve worked with hundreds of clients large and small all over the UK and overseas, from national online retailers and manufacturers to start-ups, small businesses and even motorsport teams!
We’d like to thank all the amazing businesses, charity and public-sector organisations who have hired us over the years – it’s been really fascinating and inspiring working with all of them!
Since we first started our services have changed: the digital world has grown and as a result we now spend a lot of our time on digital marketing, social media and website optimisation. But there’s still a place for good marketing strategy, effective PR campaigns, high-quality photography, video and the rest – and these are still services we offer to our clients.
To celebrate our 15th anniversary the team enjoyed an away day over the border in Nottinghamshire at the end of September. Emulating Robin Hood and his Merry Men, we tried our hand at archery in Sherwood Forest and even drove a Landrover blindfolded round a tricky off-road course!
In the afternoon we settled down to a discussion about our future direction and business strategy, plotting a course for the next 15 years ahead. Here’s hoping they are as successful and enjoyable as the first 15 have been!
