Who’s got the best PR and marketing department in Sheffield City Region?

Which organisation covers this vast area with enough digital and print products to permanently raise the profile of even the smallest company?

Who is involved in all the key business events, runs awards that celebrate achievement and can shout about it so everyone can hear?

The Star Media Group owned by Johnston Press.

With more than 125 years of newspaper experience we know our audience and we have a huge number of contacts in our database.

There is a huge choice of products, from The Star’s daily business page Star to Twitter, and from the weekly and Business Monthly supplements to our glossy The Business magazine.

And all of them are on our website – which crackles with 60,000 users a day. The figures prove it, our audience has never been bigger.

Advertising manager Marcus Schofield, said: “As an alternative to paying a PR firm to write up your good news at great expense – just tell us.

“It’s the only way to get a guaranteed profile. We are the experts at getting companies into the paper and on to our websites. We are the region’s premier media company.”

The Star also offers a free advert design service, he added, and for the estimated 50 per cent of companies that don’t have a website, mobile site or app, we can create one using our Digital Kitbag service. Social media is our thing too, we can manage your all-important Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn accounts – or launch a good old fashioned email campaign.

The latest string to our bow is targeted local television advertising following our recent deal with Sky. The Adsmart package is already reaching thousands of subscribers.

Marcus added: “As an example of the scope of our activities, we recently produced the Global Manufacturing Festival brochure, ran the City Region Business Awards and hosted our first ‘Meet the Editor’ networking event.” Call 0114 2894020, or email
