How to make headlines – when you don’t have one!

So you’re looking to get your business some media coverage… How do you do it when you don’t have any news of your own?

Here’s two quick fire ways to get the media looking your way.

  1. Comment on exisiting media topics

This comes with a caveat, don’t comment on an issue that isn’t related to your business, or you have no expertise in the area. If however, you have the appropriate qualifications to comment then make some dot points, and think about what exactly it is you’d like to contribute to the conversation.

Before you do anything, re-read your dot points, run these past your marketing team / Directors /Supervisors etc and ensure they’re on-message for your business /brand.

2. Repurpose exisiting content

Do you have research that could be shared via podcast? Look for industry related podcasts and email the presenters /producers.

Have you hosted a webinar? Perhaps the content for that could be turned into an e-book.  Then create a media release about this e-book. Too easy!

If you’d like ideas for your business to secure the media exposure it deserves, contact us today.

What makes a media release?

Over the coming days on Instagram we’re sharing just some of the components of a media release that will get noticed!

In coming up with this content, it reinforced to me what a multilayered “beast” the media release is.

Beyond the content, which is arguably the most important element, there’s so much more to a media release. JPEG image-4172F6698DF5-1

There’s the fact that you need to tailor it to HOW you’re distributing the release, there’s font consideration and so much more (we have allocated 10 days to it on Instagram!).

Do you need a media release for your business to share the news of a new product line in store?

Perhaps you’ve been selected for a local business award, certainly, THAT’s worth sharing!

Or maybe you’ve just managed to secure a top influencer online or a celebrity to promote your product!

Whatever it is, we can assist with your next media release. CLICK here to view how we can help. 

I look forward to sharing some tips with you and reading your feedback.

 

How can Public Relations help my business?

IMG_3615

This is a topic we’ve been discussing over on Instagram.

We shared a few ideas over there, so if you’re keen on specifics, take a look.

A more detailed examination is below.

The answer to this question depends on two factors.

Budget and ideas.

There’s really only one of those that in a majority of cases has restrictions. If you budget correctly, it needn’t have restrictions.

Ideas and possibilities come down to the creativity of the agency after planning a strategy that will meet the goals of your business needs and your budget requirements.

At Pursuit we operate on a “no cookie cutter approach”, meaning that each and every proposal we create for our clients is as unique as their business.

We listen to what our clients are saying, what they want to say through this public relations campaign, who they want to reach, their ideas on how we do this and after this, we brainstorm ideas and present a tailored proposal (within their budget!).

So are you interested in hearing how WE can help YOUR business?

Guess what?

We can for as little as $75.00. Yes, that’s right $75.

Obama’s social success

As The President’s reign comes to an end, it seems apt to look at some of the social media tricks that Obama does well.

Presenting a focused and clear message – Remember Hope?

Barack_Obama_Hope_poster

It’s a one word slogan that created buzz and worked to build Obama’s profile.

Authenticity – Obama signs off social media posts, authored by him with -BO anything else is tagged appropriately. That way the audience knows who has written what and takes the post to the next level of engagement.

Empower those that support you  – celebrities including Oprah, Bradley Cooper and Tiger Woods have all met Obama and through their own ways their support has further promoted Obama’s profile.

Three very simple ways your business can succeed online.
