Public Relations backed by strategic insight with measurable impact
We’ll always recommend a strategy phase to kick-off a PR or social media project, so we can get right under the skin of your business or brand and get on the same page as fast as possible, so you won’t waste time saying the wrong things to the wrong people!
PR can be a powerful tool in brand building and forging strong relationships with your stakeholders. By communicating the latest news or insight in your sector along with your labelled branded content, you are establishing everyday relevance in B2B and B2C environments.
PR and content strategy
We spend time with clients learning about their business or products and their target audience, to identify key content opportunities, audiences and the most suitable platforms for your campaign. Through messaging workshops and immersion in your business, we are able to create engaging positions for you to offer clearly defined content in your industry.
A strong PR strategy, with targeted messaging, provides you with a roadmap to achieve strategic, streamlined communications, create brand awareness and identify what engaging content will be required to meet your business objectives.
There is no separation between ‘online’ and ‘offline’ where your brand’s reputation can be managed or promoted through a single press release. When forming an opinion of your business, consumers will scan the media, social media, review platforms and your website. We conduct full audits to identify potential risks to reputation, outlining in detail the best strategy and tactics to ensure your reputation stays on track.
There’s no point having a strong external strategy if you don’t communicate your proposition internally and effectively. Our strategic and creative teams can help drive workforce engagement, strengthen your culture and motivate your teams which will all help your business grow.
A full internal communications audit allows us to identify your key internal audiences, what they want, what other internal and external noise you're competing with, and how successfully your current internal strategy and comms channels are working. We will look at your internal communications channels, including what structures you have in place for dealing with any crisis-type scenarios.
