Welcome to Northern Hive, a communications and inbound marketing agency specialising in digital PR and content creation. We’re passionate about sparking great conversations and helping brands to connect with their audience, wherever they may be.

Our hive does things differently.


While the traditional PR agency model has certainly changed, communications remains at the heart of everything we do here at Northern Hive. From advising CEOs on the best way forward with an acquisition announcement, to assisting developers with a communications plan around a new building project, we offer complete PR consultancy to help convey the right message.

We’ve shaken up the old agency model to meet the present needs of businesses in a number of sectors. Ultimately, brands want to communicate their story effectively, and attract and keep customers and clients.

Our inbound approach to PR and marketing does exactly that.

The Future of PR is Inbound



We’re passionate about helping brands tell their stories, creating great content and helping brands attract, delight and convert visitors and customers through the inbound methodology. We love inbound as it can actually be seen and measured. The old PR agency approach simply isn’t fit for purpose in today’s digital world, and our agency offers an integrated approach to communications and inbound marketing, providing a greater level of value for the brands we work with. Without the fluff.



We believe a successful relationship relies on spark and pride ourselves on generating honest, transparent partnerships with those we work with. We become part of the team. From using an email account from your own domain when pitching media, to spending time working in your office and getting to know your staff, we definitely do things differently to many other agencies. We become an integral part of your brand and business, helping us to gain a greater understanding of what you do and ultimately return the best results possible.

The team behind Northern Hive worked with us for over 2 years. The campaign was for a highly sophisticated engineering tool, and they quickly got up to speed. A marketing strategy was established complete with content ideas, advertising plans, an abundance of media coverage and an influencer network strategy. The campaign enabled us to develop relationships with thousands of individuals and the work even catalyzed demo sign ups. The result was millions of impressions for our content and an increase in web-traffic and marketing indicators (rankings, inbound links, keyword rankings, competitiveness). The work helped prepare for our successful acquisition – the only reason the campaign came to an end.

Our clients and team members hail from the UK, Canada and the US, and we’re excited to grow our international family further in the coming years. We believe great communications and marketing campaigns have no borders, and are at their most successful when incorporating global trends and world influencers.

We span a number of timezones so can react swiftly to the needs of our clients. We also help clients reach international markets.



While we work in a number of sectors, our technology & engineering hive has been created in response to an industry need. We noticed a gap, particularly in areas of computer aided engineering, and have spent time to create a bespoke offering for businesses in this sector. We help technology and engineering brands to market and communicate their services, while understanding the technical aspects of what they do.
