Communications Strategy

Issuing a press release through the wire doesn't drive real readership results. Media coverage involves a process of strategic planning, messaging, and execution. Don't just hire a "PR person", you need strategic communications counselors who can optimize your campaign.

Competitive Intelligence

For any client that we sign, one of the very first things we do is conduct a competitive analysis of media coverage. This may include your own coverage, similar companies and products, and those who we're aspiring to reach. Such analysis will include the writer/creator's info, messaging, themes, takeaways, and considerations for our own campaign. This is critical to ensuring a solid media list is developed for you that is relevant and targeted.

Event Management

While the nature of events continues to change, there's one thing that remains consistent - industry events create a swell of activity that we can often ride for publicity opportunities, and independent events are a serious consideration otherwise. Depending on higher level marketing plans, we can form an events PR strategy that maximizes leverage and coverage opportunities in line with your business objectives.

Tactical Planning

It's easy to build a plan, but it takes a strategic one to drive a successful campaign that results in good earned media. This takes into account what our media targets, including press and influencers, consider of value to their respective audiences. Not only does this involve consideration for the most interesting news beats, but also timing and access. Pre-briefs, exclusives, events, interviews and more are what our clients expect to see, and our results show for it.
