From pitch through to fulfilment, House Of Comms set themselves apart from other PR agencies in the region with their robust understanding of the evolving space of consumer PR.
Virgin Atlantic appointed House Of Comms for a series of project-based pieces of PR activities, with a specific remit to focus on non-traditional media engagement. Their proposed media, engagement tactics and project planning spoke volumes about their experience and familiarity working with this ever-expanding community of ‘new’ media.
Since appointing House Of Comms, we have been extremely happy with not only their approach to the media, but also their client management. House Of Comms are thorough, honest and committed – values that resonate throughout the entire team. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend House Of Comms.
House of Comms offers a refreshing approach to PR. They really understand our business and what we are trying to achieve and consistently deliver impressive results. Their energy and passion for what they do makes them a great addition to our team.
Working with the team over at House of Comms is an absolute no brainer for us. They are part of the BOUNCE family and after their launch campaign for BOUNCE, Dubai, won Best Consumer Service PR Campaign in the regional MEPRA Awards 2014, who else could live up to their performance.
"I met several recommended PR firms and then I met House Of Comms; their love of all things PR was palpable, it became obvious very quickly that whilst they are refreshingly realistic when it comes to establishing targets and discussing deliverables they undoubtedly strive to over deliver.
“As promoters we work at an incredibly fast pace often dictated by external factors and influences; and whilst the aim is always to be proactive we are often forced to be reactive. PR is integral if not essential certainly to the ‘announce’ and ‘on-sale’ phase of every show; it unequivocally affects our ticket sales, sponsorship opportunities and of course our reputation within the Global music industry like all businesses we need the medias support. HOC’s relationships with influencers, bloggers and journalists alike is clearly long standing and based on a mutual respect – as a result our media penetration locally and Regionally has surpassed any expectation I may have had time and time again.
“My confidence in House Of Comms grows daily – they have become a much needed and indeed loved part of my business and my team - fiercely loyal they are not afraid to ‘get their hands dirty’ – they have handled every situation with professionalism – more importantly they have handled every situation exactly as I would, they think, they plan, they behave with the Louder ethos at the forefront of their mind – I don’t believe that can be taught it’s a case of ‘you’ve either got it or you haven’t’ and I can say with absolute certainty that House Of Comms have got IT … and then some.
Ladies, it’s a pleasure and a privilege – thank you for being you, a very LOUD version of you obviously.”
"The team at House of Comms have been a pleasure to work with for a few years now. They understand our overall strategy and the audiences we are trying to reach. Through PR related activity in the UAE and elsewhere they have helped us secure good press coverage on a consistent basis, enabling us to expand our footprint and raise our awareness and visibility in the region."
"One of the many things that makes House of Comms stand out from the competition is the teams’ consistent professionalism and ability to get things done. They promise the world and deliver the universe. Whether its hospitality, product launches or simple media relations, they always go above and beyond to make sure all parties are happy. The House of Comms ladies make my life as a journalist easy and they’re my first call for anything and everything."
"It’s always refreshing to open a detailed e- mail from House of Comms and to know that, should I have a query or need further information on anything they will respond within moments. I find this so refreshing. Working with House of Comms is a pleasure. We only wish they had all the big accounts so we could get stuff done faster."
"The team at House Of Comms is genuinely one of my favourite PR agencies to work with, not only because of their friendly nature, but because of their professional attitude. Quick to respond, helpful and insightful, this PR agency is an editor's dream contact. They are also one of the rare agencies in Dubai who understands both their clients and the media landscape, how they can work together."
"House Of Comms' biggest strength is the way in which they foster relationships with the media. Most importantly, they build bonds by understanding the individual, the publication and the needs of both. They are always quick to react to requests and often go above and beyond to find interesting angles that make each editor feel are getting a boutique service."
"Put simply, the guys at house of comms know how to get things done. They go the extra mile to make my life as a journalist simple and understand not only the needs of their clients but also what the media are looking for in terms or story angles and a publication's readership. They are always quick to respond to requests and really understand the need to get me information in time for deadlines. It is a pleasure to work alongside such a talented and professional crew."
"There are only a few agencies which, for me, stand out, these are the agencies who take time to understand not only the needs of the client who they are representing, but also of the media influencers, bloggers, editors etc that they want to engage and work with. Successful engagement is achieved when the needs and goals of all parties is met, and I believe that this is something that the House of Comms team do well. And when it comes to events, I know that they will only send me relevant and interesting invites."
I’ve been working with HOC for close to 5 months now and I can honestly say that I am very happy with their services. They handle quite a sensitive high profile account for us and they’ve gone over and above to achieve a successful outcome. I love how helpful and ready and willing they always are, they do everything with a smile on their face and are always looking for solutions. I can vouch for HOC and highly recommend them as they are an extremely competent and capable team.
“Having dealt with numerous agencies both in the UAE and regionally it is very rare to come across a team that not only are easy to work with, who know how to engage and communicate but who also understand the market and social culture of the region. In an ever increasing competitive and unque market it is refreshing to work with an agency who know what bloggers/social media influencers are looking for and how to engage us, excite us and work with us, the House of Comms team are some of the friendliest, easiest and fun people to work with, they know me better than I know myself!”
We’ve worked with everyone from local start-ups to global companies and have had the joy of working with some incredible brands throughout the years. Here are a few of the jewels in our crown…
