Strategic Planning & Development
Before you do anything, you should have a plan, right? The same goes for public relations. The first thing we do is sit down and learn everything there is to know about your business and understand your goals. Then we craft a plan customized specifically for you. We don’t start any project before this is completed. Your customized plan could be one of, or a combination of, the communications tactics listed below.
The goal is to get you in the news – either in traditional forms of media like newspapers, radio and television or newer forms such as blogs. Media coverage can achieve a number of goals, such as increasing awareness, building credibility or promoting an event.
Content is essential to being a successful company. If you don’t have press releases, biographies, photos, infographics, videos, case studies, whitepapers and testimonials, what is there to communicate and how will your target audience learn about you? Creating effective content takes time and know-how; let us do it for you.
Are you on top of the ever-evolving social atmosphere? You can rely on our team to do the appropriate research so you understand where and how you should be involved, then develop a plan for you to execute.
It’s not good enough to just reach traditional media these days. You must also be able to identify and leverage the audience of influencers on all social media channels and blogs.
Sometimes it’s not who you are, but who you know! Why not leverage strategic partnerships for mutually beneficial cross-promotion?
Are you being a good corporate citizen? Let us research and connect with the community partners that make sense for your business.
Leave it to Pivot to plan and promote your ribbon cutting, anniversary, awards ceremony or other promotional event so it’s memorable for the right reasons.
Even the best companies in the world have to protect their brand. Let us plan, monitor and communicate the appropriate message for positive sentiment.
Admit it, you’re not ready. You may have an operational crisis plan, but don’t let yourself be unprepared for how to communicate difficult situations so you control the conversation, not the public.
Are you reaching out to your stakeholders effectively via email? How often? How are you monitoring it? What’s your message? How are you defining success?
Subject-matter experts are probably plentiful at your company. Leverage their thought leadership; they are a great tool for your company. Let Pivot do the research; you stand behind the opinion. We can even help you write the speech.
What are the appropriate awards for which you should be nominated? Why not let someone else pat your back? You deserve it and it lends you brand credibility!
Do you know what’s being said about your brand in the news or on social media? How about what your competitors are doing to gain your piece of the market share? Leave it to us to monitor, analyze and report so you can make solid business decisions.
Your website is the glass door to your organization. Can your customers see inside? You will be judged on design, functionality and content. Make sure it’s the image you want to portray.
