THE VALUE OF PR

Public relations offers advantages not found with other marketing options. A critical advantage of public relations is that it helps establish credibility for a company, product or person with a targeted customer group by capitalizing on the influence of third parties.

Make your customers evangelists

When customers are truly thrilled about their experience with your product or service, they can become outspoken “evangelists” for your company. How we do it:

Press releases | Case studies | Speaking co-presenters | Quotable sources to the press | Customer advisory councils

Make your company a thought leader

What differentiates a thought leader is the recognition from the outside world that the company deeply understands the needs of its customers and the broader marketplace in which it operates. How we do it:

Bylined articles | White papers | Speaking engagements | Blogs | Webinars | Podcasts

Make your company famous

Trust is built on reputation and reputation is generally not built on advertising. It is built on what others say about you. It is critical to generate third-party credibility with the audiences you wish to influence. How we do it:

Visibility in print and e-media outlets in key verticals | Executive profiles and opinion pieces | Story angles and placements | Product profiles/reviews | Tradeshow press appointments | Awards

Measure your Results

How do you know you’ve chosen a good PR firm? We know you can’t manage what you can’t measure. We understand the importance of comprehensive reporting of our activities and time spent on focused actions that make your PR program a success. How we do it:

Priority planning | Accomplishment reports | Weekly or bi-weekly meetings | Tracking of media coverage | Quarterly reports | Annual reviews

But don’t just take our word for it
