We have partnered with Tailormade Media, specialists in hospitality PR and free lance hotel marketing & sales professional Lorna Macleod to offer hotels extra support with marketing & PR after lockdown, entirely free of charge.

Actions speak louder than words. When we say "we are in this together" we mean it. It is a pleasure to collaborate with other businesses and professionals to support the industry we rely on and love, entirely free of charge.


Edinburgh based Tailormade Media are keen to give back to Scotland's business community and would like to offer three venues a free, no-strings-attached media campaign to generate exposure that will help each venue get back on its feet after reopening.


The agency currently conducts media campaigns and manages social media on behalf of the award-winning five-star Dumfries House Lodge in Ayrshire and was last year responsible for handling publicity around the opening of The Granary Lodge at Castle of Mey in Caithness, attracting worldwide media coverage in the process.


Alex Schweitzer-Thompson of Tailormade said:

"We take our social responsibility seriously and, whenever possible, we aim to help businesses by using the skills among our team to promote their wonderful work to prospective customers. It seems the coming weeks could prove a crucial time for businesses to start telling their story and spreading the word about their services and products, and we would like to extend the invitation to three businesses to work with us on a media campaign that we hope will yield media coverage and engaging social media content to help them get back on their feet."


Tailormade is offering their services pro bono to three hotels in Scotland, if you would like to be considered please contact them directly: hello@thisistailormade.com
