We won’t pretend we knew we’d be here when we started Releasd back in 2012.
Having worked in Comms for years, we were sure our *original* idea was going to change the (PR) world: a genuinely great online press release tool. It was quite original...back then. And so we built a super-flexible platform that would allow PRs to share multimedia content with journalists in a quick and easy way.
Then, we got lucky
Thanks to its flexibility, early clients started using the platform for other things. Agencies reporting to their clients. Clients reporting to their managers. And then those in-house teams sharing work with stakeholders across their organisation.
And that’s where the magic happened.
Together with our clients we learned that, by sharing work in a truly visual, digestible and engaging way, two excellent things happened:
- the Comms team rose from the shadows and its value was finally understood, and
- stakeholders across the entire business could actually use the stuff being provided to do their own jobs more effectively.
Comms teams were sitting at the beating heart of their organisations.
Through a combination of our platform and best practice, we now help in-house teams across six continents transform the way they are perceived by the businesses they serve. And we love doing it.
So this is really a thank you letter to all of our clients who have shown us the way.
With a superb leadership team, an expanding international presence and big plans for the coming months and years, we are super excited about the journey ahead. Join us!
