CURRENT AND PAST CLIENTS
“I worked with Allison (Ally) on the 2020/21 South Africa Yearbook – an annual publication that gives a comprehensive account of the programmes and policies of the Government of South Africa. She was proofreading designated chapters of the book on a freelance basis. Ally is a good editor who understood the brief as soon as it was shared with her. She worked hard on very tight deadlines, ensuring that the book was published on time. She was professional and continuously provided feedback on how far she was with the work, thereby managing expectations. While I gave her a style guide to help her meet internal standards, I was impressed that she already had hers, which assured me that I was dealing with a well-prepared professional. I recommend Ally for editing and proofreading work because of her good work ethic and professionalism.
“Working with Ally and Cathy from Allycats PR is a rewarding experience. Apart from their high standards, their conduct is very professional and unbelievably reliable. Their extensive knowledge ensures that the appropriate strategies are implemented to ensure exposure to the target audience. It is easy to work with them, they anticipate your requirements all the way and are never shy to provide advice. They are one of the best PR companies with very reasonable costs.
“I have worked with Allycats PR, as a supplier and as a customer, and in both areas working with Allycats has been nothing but a breeze. Cathy and Ally make a very dedicated, effective, creative and professional team, and they pay attention to every detail. Not only do I have the highest regard for their work, but their professional etiquette is also a rare find – they do not need to be managed, they are friendly, they work in record time without hassle, and you don’t need to explain every little detail – I believe their experience speaks for itself. I highly recommend working with Allycats for public relations, copywriting and social media projects.
Allycats provided Sebata Group of Companies with the necessary media assistance and decision making to announce our company’s award-winning achievements through various media channels. We sincerely appreciated the responsiveness and manner in which they conduct business. Allison’s knowledge and proactive engagement with the media has been the major factor in our press release success. I can confidently recommend Allycats Public Relations as a solid and reliable media expert.
“Allycats PR has been contracted by the Innibos National Craft Awards for six years, since its inception in 2017. The awareness generated about the awards via social media and the publicity generated in a variety of mediums – from print and online to radio and TV – has significantly contributed to the continued growth and success of the awards year-on-year. I would not hesitate to recommend Allycats PR for social media, publicity, content creation, writing and editing.
“Allycats has worked with Misty Mountain and the Long Tom Toboggan on a variety of publicity and social media campaigns. They are on point wordsmiths!
“Allycats PR understands the media landscape in South Africa and has been able to advise us on how to pitch news to meet the media’s needs, liaise with editors and other stakeholders on special projects and advise us on the type of media to use to convey our various messages. We find the size of the company makes Allycats responsive to our needs, and we will not hesitate to recommend their services to any entity looking to increase their public exposure.
“Allycats PR has done a variety of work for the Ekurhuleni Metro and produced high quality work on all contracts. The company is not only reliable, but also flexible and willing to accommodate the client on short notice. Allycats has the ability to write for high and low LSM readers for print and electronic media. I can confidently recommend Allycats PR for interviewing, copywriting, editing and proofreading. Their articles were well received by our target audience and were always factually correct and of high quality. Turn-around times were always within 24 hours.
“Most notably, I was very pleased with Allycats’ writing service for our external newsletter, the SAQA Update, as well as their editing and proofreading services for our annual report. SAQA also made use of Allycats for editing reports, research publications and promotional material. We found their services to be a valuable asset across our corporate communication initiatives.
“On behalf of the Lowveld Book Festival committee, thank you most sincerely for all your hard work and help in publicising and promoting our festival across all media platforms. There was a lot of information being passed through to you over a long period of time and you certainly kept our festival up there and out there in terms of awareness – which no doubt contributed to the success of our first book festival.
“On behalf of the Chicken Challenge 2016 committee members we would like to thank you for your support during the initiative. Thank you for the lovely pieces you wrote about GRIP and us.

“Due to the nature of our work the requirements on our marketing and public relations team are exceptionally high as they have to keep up with world-class quality and trends. Our decision to extend the public relations contract with Allycats pays testimony to their skills to produce work of the highest quality, on time and in budget.
“Cathy and Allison have displayed the highest levels of journalistic integrity and competence in completing their commissions for Leadership and Black Business Quarterly magazines. Their work is of the highest standard, hence our continued use of their services for the past decade.
“The demand for fresh content to be written, edited and delivered by deadlines often at short notice was a responsibility we entrusted to Allycats Public Relations with implicity… We were always impressed, and always satisfied.
Since 2007, Allycats has been an integral part of our management team. This has enabled Ally and Cathy to be extremely proactive, resulting in a steady stream of articles in newspapers, interviews on radio and exposure on television… Through their unflagging efforts, expertise, media contacts and knowledge, the public exposure and awareness of Rand Aid Association has exponentially increased.
“As an editor I have found the content of opinion pieces and articles submitted by Allycats Public Relations on behalf of itself and its clients to have been geared specifically for my publication, and hence newsworthy for my readers. I would not hesitate to recommend Allycats PR as an expert in its field when it comes to dealing with journalists and securing publicity for its clients in the media.
