I have worked with a number of PR companies in the past. None had ever created any worthwhile press interest for us. Despite the money and resources thrown at it, my furniture never created any excitement in the media. All that changed when I met Anne; I set the hurdle very high – ‘none have had any success with our products in the past, why should you be different’. She took the challenge and in just a few months I was seeing article after article about Wharfside. I would recommend her very highly – she seems to approach the press and their modus operandi differently from any other PR agency I've ever met.

We have a fantastic relationship with Anne and her team at Tiainen-Harris PR. They consistently provide us with a high level of service and have produced amazing press coverage for Dash & Albert. TH PR understand our business and our needs and have significantly helped us build our brand and grow our business in the UK. I'm impressed by their enthusiasm, creativity and commitment to us. For any interiors brand seeking editorial product placement PR, I wholeheartedly recommend Tiainen-Harris PR.
Genoveva Alfaro, Director of Dash & Albert Europe
Vallila has been working with Tiainen-Harris PR since August 2015 and we have been very pleased with our collaboration. They have shown great enthusiasm and positive attitude and are able to work in a very flexible manner. Through their great connections they have helped us build a really good PR portfolio in the UK and have increased our brand awareness in the new market. Anne is personally very active with her clients and has a proper hands-on approach. She has an affinity for Scandinavian design and a strong drive to push it forward in the UK market. Vallila would definitely recommend Tiainen-Harris PR to anyone trying to increase their presence in the UK.

My experience dealing with Tiainen-Harris PR has been very positive indeed to date. Before we started working together, I was trying to handle my own PR and was really having little in the way of success. Running a traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ shop as well as on online business leaves very little time to devote to making contacts and marketing products. Even if I did have the time, I don’t have the necessary press contacts and experience to do this job effectively. It is a huge relief to be able to depend on someone with considerable knowledge and extensive contacts in a relevant field - Anne has a rare combination of expertise in PR, a depth of understanding of Scandinavian brands plus valuable first-hand experience of running an online business. She has worked consistently over the last eight months to promote our business to the press and the results of her efforts speak for themselves; we now have a file bursting with press cuttings and have seen a significant increase in sales to our website. Tiainen-Harris PR are always hugely positive and encouraging in their approach and this has had huge impact not only on raising our profile, but on the way we view ourselves. We have achieved a great deal together and I am delighted with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Tiainen-Harris PR to other businesses who are ready to take their business up a level and make themselves seen – we are now visible.

We're over the moon with your service! We are really happy with the coverage and service from your team.

Anne is about the only UK based PR person who gets the Scandinavian æsthetic.

I just wanted to say how good your press releases are. It's so helpful to link to the the product details online and to have such easily accessible high-res images. You'd be surprised, I think, by the standard of some PR emails.
