No More PR & Marketing Bollox! is campaigning to stamp out all those jargon-filled, unexplained, acronym quoting and nonsensical articles that have for too long plagued our world of PR & Marketing - and made it almost impossible for SMEs and Start-ups to get clear cut, simple, actionable advice.

This weekly blog-site is dedicated to providing the SME and Start-up community with highly reliable, no-nonsense and straight-talking advice on PR and Marketing.

The goal of No More PR & Marketing Bollox! is to bring together an array of tips, hacks and insights from entrepreneurs, marketers, and PR professionals to provide SMEs and start-ups with weekly, straight-talking, and no-nonsense advice on PR & marketing, which will enable them to thrive and succeed in the digital world.

Please help us to build a community and platform where SMEs and Start-ups can come for well considered, clearly written, jargon-free, concise and not in any way confusing advice on PR & Marketing.

We would love for you to join our campaign.
