Projects

Something Or Nothing Limited - the PR agency for you

Something Or Nothing Limited is a marketing and PR agency. Located at Great Doddington, Wellingborough, Northants, we are specialists in the entertainment and fashion industries.

Mission
To deliver a quality service at an affordable price.

Description
Welcome to the Skills page for Something Or Nothing.

We are a specialist international PR agency which works in the entertainment and fashion sectors.

In both of these sectors the marketplace for talent is very crowded and we are here to help you or your product stand out above everyone else. We can help you build your profile with the press and the media and make people aware of who you are and what you are doing. We can even been your voice when you don’t want them to know!

Public Relations is a skill in itself and we have years of successful relationships with the press and the media that have helped many people and businesses. We have worked with artists, songwriters and labels alike and with venues and promoters around the world.

In the fast moving digital world where music itself becomes the physical product as opposed to the cd it is important that your sales campaigns are properly structured. People need to know that you have a new product and where they can find it. With limited access to radio play in the UK it is even more important that new music is brought to the attention of the right audience at the right time, and we can help you with this.

Strategic campaign planning may seem a frightening term, but it is less so in reality. Every release should be thought through. It is merely not a case of putting a note on Facebook and hoping for the best! We are here to help you manage your releases so that you get your audiences to the right spot and see the returns, hopefully, in the sales figures.

As a business we may occasionally look at management and tour booking for artists and we also have our own record label, Brown Moose Records.

We are also experienced in retail services and are able to offer help and advice to fashion businesses who are either new or who are already in the marketplace.
