Indie PR

As well as running Magpie Wedding and writing for many UK publications, I run Indie PR. This is where I help creative, indie businesses to get their business noticed in both traditional ways such as through the press and TV and more modern ways such as social media, blogging and email marketing.

Indie pr log with Kate Beavis

I have a very broad retail background before setting up my own business, with extensive experience in visual merchandising, retail design and marketing for fashion companies as well as blue chip companies. I have also styled photography, worked closely with brand and PR, trade planning as well as being a training manager.

What kind of businesses is Indie PR perfect for? 

I love businesses that are a little different,I  love helping small businesses. I love creativity, the wedding industry, vintage and craft businesses. So many are run by mothers, busy juggling parenthood with their business which I can advise with too.

There are three ways to work with me: CONSULT, CREATE and FLEXIBLE PR.

Flexible Indie PR with Kate Beavis

A more affordable and flexible PR solution designed to help small businesses, Flexible PR is a one off payment for PR. Recently through flexible PR I have got clients coverage in Hello Magazine, Stylist, Prima and Woman and Home.

How it works is this:

  • I receive a journalist or blogger enquiry which could be suitable for you. I will then share your details with them, telling them how perfect you are.
  • When they want to speak to you and are very interested, I will arrange an introduction. At this point a fee is charged.
  • The rest is up to you….plus you get a new contact to speak to in the future.


Did you know that I offer creative businesses advice on any aspect that they need – sharing my 18 years senior retail experience as well as marketing, social media, branding and PR advice.

This consists of an intro half day session followed by monthly Skype calls to keep you on track and to offer ongoing support.
