Advertising (noun)

the act of directly communicating a persuasive message about a product or service to attract consumers and influence future purchases. Something our experts at Hopkins Communications are REALLY good at. (The latter sentence is an example of self-advertising, something we’re also good at).*

* Definition by Managing Director Mark Hopkins. You may remember him from such successful ad campaigns as ‘Buy this now or everyone will say you’re stupid’. Or more recently ‘You don’t have one of these yet?! What is wrong with you?’.

We’re not ones to blow our own trumpet, but…

That’s what she said!

While working on behalf of the events associate sponsors, Cork County Council and Cork City Council, Hopkins Communications were a pleasure to deal with. They developed an integrated marketing campaign with innovative ideas that helped the Irish Open exceed its footfall target. This has never happened in the history of the tournament before.
