They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating, so here are some of our recent press cuttings:

And here’s what some of our delighted clients have said about us:

The Listening Device

AndroullaWorking with Peter has been invaluable in planning the marketing strategy required to launch my new businessAndroulla Derbyshire, Owner, Culinary Capers Cookery School

My business and I benefitted greatly from the advice and insight received from Secret Agent Marketing. The fresh and objective 
proposals have impacted on our own approach to our business giving us confidence and new direction. We now have a clever strapline that encompasses our mission and this coupled with a suggested new pricing stategy coincides with a significant improvement in business. Paul Butler, Charlies Parlour Pet Cremation Services

Matt NicholsI have no hesitation recommending Peter and Louisa from Secret Agent Marketing. After just a few hours of their time less than one week ago I now have a brand new marketing plan that I truly believe in. For a new business venture, or as for me, a review after ten years of trading, they get full marks – 10/10. Matt Nichols, Classic Cars Driven

Peter and Louisa from Secret Agent Marketing have a great positive energy. We have used them to help us develop a marketing strategy and develop our marketing message. They took an objective view of our business, helping us overcome a change in markets and develop our marketing to suit. Michelle Tinkley, Owner, Physibets Limited

Kirsty NewlandPete worked with us on our initial company launch. He took time to understand our business and also ourselves and our motivation. Pete helped to source an artist for our logo and marketing. Pete has managed to raise our profile around the Wiltshire area as we have now been featured in several different publications. Kirsty Newland, Strictly Organised

Marcus LilleyI hired Peter to work with me to help expand and develop my business having met him in the summer of 2012 we have built up an extremely good working relationship. Peter is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of marketing and is very likeable and easy to get on with. His support, advice and ideas are always thoroughly well thought out and presented in a professional and concise manor. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any marketing task. It has been a pleasure working with him. Marcus Lilley, Founder, FutrSocial

Press and PR

Secret Agent Marketing assisted with the launch our our new business in Marlborough. 
They introduced us to social media marketing and generally helped put the new business on the map. Mark Wilson, Fraser’s Budgens of Marlborough

Phil Griffiths copyWe have been working with Pete for the last few months and he has injected enthusiasm and ideas into our PR. Pete swiftly understood our business and we have seen positive results already. It’s fun working with him and I have no doubt that Secret Agent Marketing will continue to help us improve our profile. Phil Griffiths, Director, The Connect Team

Nicola AshtonWe’ve worked with Pete for several years now and over that time he has made a huge difference to the profile of our business. Pete instinctively knows what makes news and how to present it in a way which gets great coverage in print, online, on the radio and on TV. I don’t think Pete’s ever failed to get an article in print for us yet! I would recommend him whole-heartedly. Nicola Ashton, Mole Productions

Linda RussellPeter was friendly, helpful and constructive: he produced a great article for us (well-researched and well-written), which appeared in local press and Co-operative News. Linda Russell, Founder, JooMo

Pete used imaginative PR stunts and established regional media contacts to secure free press publicity for a number of Spar store openings. Steve Ryder, Business Development Advisor, Capper and Co. Ltd.

Jim PettipherI’m very happy to personally recommend Pete, and in fact I often do. He does what he says he will and he does it well and to good effect. And I can’t ask for more than that. Jim Pettipher, Co-operative Futures

Being a newspaper editor in his past life, Peter is in a perfect position to know exactly what newspaper editors want to read. Consequently, what Peter writes on behalf of his clients, not only gets published – but generally doesn’t get ‘edited’ – so, his client’s message DOES get published in its entirety. Bob Holman, Owner, The Food Gallery

Peter has supported Co-operatives West Midlands and Co-operatives East Midlands during 2011 in their endeavours to promote and raise awareness of co-operatives. He has provided them with the required expertise, network contacts and professional influence to drive these goals and will continue to support them in their exciting year 2012 UN International Year of Co-operatives. Jenny de Villiers, Secretary, Co-operatives West Midlands

Nigel ScottWe wanted to get some press coverage for the successes my clients have been achieving. We got some fantastic results by asking Pete to write a press release on my work with Hayley Woodall of Hulbert & Woodall. We have had coverage in 2 local papers, the main local business paper, online and on BBC local radio. Several local business people have mentioned it to me and Hayley has already had some business from it. The investment was very reasonable and the service was extremely professional I would recommend Pete to any business seeking some media coverage Thanks Pete! Nigel Scott, ActionCoach Business Coach

Pete has done an amazing job, beyond what was expected, and the results keep coming in. I would definitely recommend Agent Pete to anyone who wants to do some PR but doesn’t really know how to start. Great job Pete. Hayley Woodall, Director, Hulbert & Woodall Print Limited

We have had an ongoing business relationship with Peter for the last 4 to 5 years and always found him and the service he provides professional, reliable and any press releases are timely and well covered in the local media. Keith Winmill, Company Secretary, Moore Allen and Innocent

ChantalPeter created a press release for me and my company. The article was distributed by Peter and taken up by many relevant publications. The article was very well written and resulted in extra business for me. During the process I thoroughly enjoyed working with Peter. He was professional at all times, proactive, energetic, helpful and original. Over the years Peter has also successfully introduced me to other business partners, again helping me promote my business and again resulting in more business. Peter’s acquaintance has been very valuable to me. Chantal Bourgonje, C For Design

Mike HarlingPeter is helping raise the profile of our business and has succeeded in taking us to places we would not normally go, thereby helping us to develop faster and create greater awareness of our activities with potential new clients. I am impressed by his professionalism, speed of response and knowledge of the PR world. Mike Harling, International Business Development Consultant, Whitefield International

Training

In just over half a day with the help of Pete we have setup our initial Social Media platform. Pete guided us through all the necessary steps to establish our presence on Twitter, Google+, Facebook – Business and a Blog so we are now able to use each of these products individually or via or communicate via HootSuite. In addition Pete helped us determine how we are going to use Social Media for our first few campaigns. Kirsty Newland, Strictly Organised

Emma RobertsI first came across Pete through Secret Agent Marketing’s ‘Chamber News’, and the offer of his guide on “How to Write A Press Release”. I have read a number of these guides in varying forms, but can say that this guide is one of the best. I have found it not only easy to use, but conveyed in an exciting and innovative way that certainly assists with the creative thought process. I have referred to this guide a number of times resulting in some great press releases, and I look forward to more exciting guides from Pete. Emma Roberts, Support Services Manager, White Horse Employment

Nick MauricePeter was instrumental in obtaining £2,000 worth of sponsorship from a local company for a series of piano recitals on behalf of the charity of which I am President, The Marlborough Brandt Group. Peter is a great man to work with. He is efficient and provides excellent advice which bears fruit! Nick Maurice, Director, Marlborough Brandt Group

Rosemary WellsA great speaker about matters relating to PR. Peter has a pro-active and positive approach – with good knowledge and experience. Rosemary Wells, Head of Political and Corporate Engagement at Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce Group

Thanks so much. Well worth the time and money. Amanda McFarlane, Freelance Marketing & Business Development Consultant

Phil HendyPeter did a presentation for the Wiltshire Business Club. Instead of the usual boring and mundane powerpoint presentation style he themed it around Blockbusters. Using the clues it became a very interactive and different style of presentation ensuring that the relevant content was given. Peter really does give marketing advice in a unique style, a quality that not many marketeers really can. I would definitely recommend using Peter as a speaker and attending his seminars. (Shouldn’t forget Agent Louisa as well!) Phil Hendy, Principal, PAH Accounting
