Improve your firm’s visibility

and reputation 

Work with someone who is experienced. One who understands

how to combine research and industry insights with compelling storytelling, to assemble the right content to inform and convince your stakeholders. 

 

About us

What good is your product, service or company if no one knows about it? The Word Assembly was founded to make public relations and content writing services more accessible to start-ups, small and medium enterprises, and niche industries like construction; to spread the word about your business and empower you to succeed in your industry. We also help overseas firms gain traction in the Singapore, with our understanding of the local media and political landscape. 

 

We believe that the true value of public relations lies not only in communications, but more importantly persuading your stakeholders to adopt a desired behavior that will impact your business performance. This means creating awareness about your brand to stand out from your competitors and generate more business leads, and eventually driving attitudes and actions that will lead to more sales, repeated purchases, investor funding, and even attracting top talent.

 

Besides getting media coverage, we’ll work with you to develop regular content to engage your stakeholders, so that you can stay at the top of their mind. 

Sherlyn Chen, Founder 

Sherlyn has seven years of experience working in an established public relations agency and an in-house corporate communications team before starting this business. She is a business degree graduate and pursued an entrepreneurship course by MIT. Her hope is to provide clients better public relations advice by being more involved in their business, and

co-creating solutions to improve business performance. 

 

She has worked on Government, technology, as well as building and construction related accounts; and is skilled in public relations, event management, social media management, copywriting and editing. 

Our strengths

By keeping our manpower lean and hiring only experienced PR professionals, we reduce the layers of work, charge less, offer better quality, and give clients the attention they need to drive success.

 We are right-sized to accommodate the needs of SMEs and start-ups

  We have a strong understanding of how businesses and the Government works, and most importantly what clients want 

Besides our experience in established

PR agencies, we have worked in companies/government agencies as clients of PR agencies. This gives us a better perspective of what firms want from PR agencies and their unmet needs.

We believe in being involved in your

day-to-day business instead of just relying on information our clients provide, so that we can provide value-added insights and actionable plans. 

Our understanding of how the

Government works also helps clients obtain funding for their business, secure

public-sector business, and partner with the Government to solve issues.

It is also useful for overseas firms that want to invest in the Singapore market.

  Unlike most PR agencies, we have specialised knowledge of the construction industry

Having worked in the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore for six years, Sherlyn is aware of the issues the construction industry faces, industry trends, and the jargons used in the industry. She is also skilled in translating jargons into more layman terms while not diluting their intended meaning. This makes us better equipped than any other PR agency to help construction firms promote their business.
