PR Capabilities

These are quick list of core PR experience and capabilities.

Media Relations

Leverages tools such as press releases to create attention and ultimately media coverage for your company. This begins with story development and that begins with a solid marketable product. There is no PR that can turnaround a bad product done at the wrong time and with poor leadership. But, if you have the opposite of this, then you likely have a story we can use to make you shine. This is also the most effective way to impact SEO and general online visibility.

Authentic Link Building

Google has pretty much said if you want to show up high on their results for searches, then be sure high-quality sites are linking to yours, and their own SEO leaders have specifically mentioned news sites as the top way. So, this means news / media sites that are visited by customers you’re targeting because they value such news. Win the media’s attention and this starts to shape link-building in a truly authentic way.

Press Releases

Many companies today make the mistake of trying to use press releases only for SEO, pumping out meaningless press release after press release. While strategically written content in a press release can help shape SEO, don’t forget that getting media to write what’s in your press release is the ultimate SEO win. It is also the long-standing understanding that this is the sole purpose of a press release, not SEO. Press releases were invented for media coverage, not SEO.

SEO-Optimized Web Content

Almost all content on all pages and posts done online can benefit from SEO optimizations. But, make sure the optimization is elegantly done in a way that keeps users reading your pages and posts. If they don’t engage, then your SEO suffers by people leaving fast. SEO guidelines on how to write often are counter-productive to this goal.

Analyst Relations

Some companies can benefit from industry analyst relations. Industry analysts must be aware of industry occurrences, which means industry players. So, if you’re relevant, you should be sure industry analysts are consistently aware of you.

Product Review Programs

The value of product review programs – getting those five-star rating and editor’s choice wins – is quite well know among marketers. But, don’t forget the PR and SEO values these also provide. If a product review program is applicable for your brand, we’ll uncover that.

Contributed Article Programs

This is not to be confused with guest posts hopeful of influencing SEO. Writing an article to have published in key trade magazines can be a fruitful endeavor for B2B companies. They provide proof of industry thought leadership and potential customer leads. At the very least, they lead to PR and SEO wins. A contributed article generally has more impact on SEO than a guest post.

Speaker Programs

While most industry events are pay-to-play, if you have executive thought leaders that should be heard, we’ll be sure to explore it and help position them for success to speak at key trade events.

Strategic Positioning

Whether you need to establish a market position or re-position your existing one, PR is the starting point. We’ll work to create the new key messaging to influence the market and drive home desired market perceptions.
