We are delighted to announce our partnership with LGcommunications (LGcomms). LGcomms is a national body consisting of an association of authorities that work to raise the standard of communications in local government. e-shot are joining a select few marketing service providers who specialise in working with local government, supporting them with the unique challenges that they face.

“This new partnership with e-shot is timely for our members. Email is an essential communication channel. We’ve seen increased email engagement throughout the pandemic, and this looks set to be a trend that is here to stay. Having a specialist like e-shot share their wealth of experience adds expert knowledge that can help us keep ahead in the ways we serve our residents and raise the standards in our sector.”

LGComms provide a forum for discussion and exchange of information, views, and opinion on local government communications to encourage the highest standards of practice. We are looking forward to sharing our experience with local government communicators through dedicated articles, videos and webinars specifically designed to address their on-going challenges. And to play our part supporting professional communicators to meet and exceed the growing expectations of the audience.
