B2B PR. Without the complication.

We help you answer THE question

“Is our PR investment working?” It’s a simple question, yet surprisingly hard to answer when you’re forced to wade through pages of metrics that look good but don’t tell the full story. We tailor our reporting so you can see exactly how your campaigns support your KPIs and objectives. So, when your stakeholders ask the question, you can confidently answer “YES”.

We’re Midnight. And we could be the B2B partner you’re looking for

Yes, we know… we’re pretty fresh-faced for an agency founded back in the nineties. But that’s kind of our thing. Our experience doing the fundamentals brilliantly while keeping our thinking fresh has grown businesses, built reputations and helped our clients’ brands make a meaningful dent in the world. And being adaptable to an ever-changing business and media landscape allows us to be the strategic partner our clients were always looking for.

How we’re different

We’re straightforward

We’re like a best friend who always has your back. We’re honest, straight and we don’t hide the truth, but always with your best interests at heart. If it’s not working, we fix it together. If it is working, we celebrate together. Possibly with a pint*. (*optional)

We’re on your side

We understand the challenges and pressures you’re under – so think of us as an extension of your team. Sometimes you need a bunch of metrics and help communicating results to stakeholders. Other times, it may be an informal half hour chat over a coffee with a friendly face. We’re there for you for both – and everything in between.

We’re human

We’re not like other agencies. If you need something just outside scope, we do our best to help. If circumstances change and we need to adapt, we make it work. We won’t just point to our contract and refuse to budge. We’re human and whatever you need, we’re there to make it work.

We make working together fun

Clients tell us we make working together easy, enjoyable and fun. We won’t argue with that. Sure, we can put on our serious face at the right times, but you’ll enjoy our calls (and not only because we’re delivering good news about results). Shocker, right?

We don’t do jargon

We’re not robots in suits, so we don’t do jargon. We want you to understand exactly what’s happening on a campaign and how it’s going.

If this sounds like the kind of difference you want to get on board with, let’s explore how we can work together.
