Public and media relations

Every company wants to tell its story. Sharing your story through business and trade media, industry analysts and social media are still among the best ways. News releases, interviews, contributed articles, blogs and social media campaigns help to get consistent messages out to target audiences and engage them in a two-way dialogue. A blend of traditional and social media outreach will help the right people notice your organization. Here are a few examples:

Issues management

No matter how well an organization plans, bad news can surface. Sometimes it’s real. Sometimes it’s speculative or perceived. Software failure, cyber theft, data or hazardous waste leaks or any kind of security breach can cause unrecoverable credibility problems. Speculation about real or possible impact to people or the environment can swing out of control fast. So can losing a top executive.

Preparing to tackle each potential issue before it becomes a crisis is critical for any organization whether it’s public, private, nonprofit, educational or a government agency. Starting with a positive image will create the right foundation for rebuilding trust, and a strong social media presence will help get the facts out fast.

Communication planning

Telling a company’s story well isn’t as easy as it seems. It takes knowing the target audience and telling your story in a way the right people will listen, understand and act. The best results are more than media mentions and articles. They also include your top messages. A client or industry influencer telling the story for you is even better.

A solid, up-to-date communication strategy makes this happen faster and more effectively. Setting goals. Identifying target audiences. Determining tactics. Each is a critical part of your strategy. Carrying out your plan also takes finesse. Carefully crafting messages. Engaging the media and other influencers with compelling facts. Creating a unique experience for everyone who attends your event. It’s all in the technique.

Marketing strategy

Instead of just announcing a new product or service, you help your clients envision themselves using it to achieve their goals. That’s the secret to a good marketing strategy. And you have to know your audience well to do it right. After that, picking the best ways to reach them and measuring how well you do are equally as important. The outcome can be powerful.

Writing

Writing doesn’t just mean choosing your words. It’s all about how those words make your readers feel and what they do in response. Whether it’s spoken words for a video script or speech or written in a news release, blog or brochure copy, there is an art to business writing that doesn’t include a collection of complicated words and difficult concepts. Telling your story and expressing exactly what you mean with examples to illustrate theory makes writing interesting, concise – and sincere. Whether people read or hear these words, they are the ones people will remember. Here are a few examples:
