If you could see my office at the moment you might be forgiven for thinking I had gotten into the Christmas spirit far too early. There’s a pile of fairy lights in one corner, there’s decorations and table mats in another, my desk is groaning under platters and bread boards.
No, I haven’t lost my mind, it is just the world of a PR. Christmas comes early. In reality I started thinking about it in August and did my first styling shoot in September.
Christmas in July is a ‘thing’ in the world of influencers and glossy magazines as all the big features, samples being ‘called in’ and themes have to be decided. It’s not just Christmas that comes early in the world of PR and Marketing Easter was started in November. Much like fashion shows and catwalks are a season or two ahead the world of magazines and media are too.
As autumn ebbs to winter and the final leaves are crunched underfoot I will be thinking of 2019 and looking at everything from the Pantone Colours, those fashion shows I mentioned earlier and lots more to get an idea of how to support my clients and help them get placement in media and with influencers for their products or service.
So you could say it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which was a recent shoot with Amelie’s Events and Barefoot Media - Sam knows how to style a table!
