At Punch Communications we are passionate about integrating PR, search and social media.

WE’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT INTEGRATING PR, SEARCH AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Driven by a passion for digital innovation and supported by influential connections developed over years in the PR industry, Pete and Emma Goold co-founded Punch Communications in 2003.

Flourishing as a PR agency with a flair for taking advantage of emerging technology, Punch became one of the first to integrate social media into PR activity – along with incorporating search engine optimisation into our roster of services. 

Our integrated approach combines the brand awareness of a traditional PR campaign, the measurability and direct commercial impact of SEO, and the community creation and management benefits of social media. 

From start-ups to global multinationals, clients based in the UK and around the world profit from our responsive, dedicated, and flexible services.

In their own words...

"Punch has a superb working understanding of the swiftly evolving social and search disciplines which, combined with the team's background in traditional PR activities, provides a unique perspective. The team is super-responsive and, critically, listens to our needs before responding, rather than simply offering a stock solution. Within the first months of working together, we swiftly developed a strong partnership which is geared towards delivering success for our business through excellence, endeavour and the practical application of best practice."

Ben Padley Former VP, Head of Digital Marketing & CRM Sony Xperia

In their own words...

"Punch's ability to understand digital marketing platforms and analyse the structure and operation of our channels from an external viewpoint has been a key asset in achieving our core objectives in digital. Coupled with the team's attention to detail and responsiveness, Punch has become invaluable in assisting Barclaycard in delivering success and excellence in many areas."

Mattias Holm Social Media and PR Director

In their own words...

"We looked globally for the best agencies to help us achieve our objectives on an international level.
