What people are saying about us

As a freelance journalist, you get inundated with press releases and PRs pitching feature ideas. Many show little understanding of what you do and who you write for, and are just a wild bid to find coverage - frequently desperate - for their client. Nudge have never done that. They're relationship driven, understand what you do and what you're looking for, don't bombard you with pointless proposals and e mails and, as a result, get far better, higher quality coverage for their clients - and don't annoy anyone in the process

Neil Davey
@dinehard Foodism, Delicious, Sainsbury's Magazine, MSN

We started working with Nudge from the conception of our business and have a working relationship that is rare between a PR and client. They understand our business, our customers and our direction. The result is a large amount of coverage across print, online and broadcast, increased footfall and a reputation to match any luxury brand in the world.
