We are veteran media professionals that speak their specific language. Television. Radio. Print. Social. Digital. Internet. We don’t issue press releases. We don’t sell air time. We talk to them about stories that will drive traffic and eyeballs to their stations and sites, in turn benefiting you and your message. We talk to them on a level no one else can.
Our media strategy utilizes thousands of connections and friendships at every major TV and radio broadcast network, local broadcast outlets, talk shows, newspapers, wire services, Internet sites, social media platforms, digital production houses, book publishers and podcasts. We talk to them as colleagues.
With your message in mind, we choose the right outlet and the proper individual to publicize your message. We don’t waste time with gatekeepers. We don’t let your message get lost in the shuffle.
A proper media strategy doesn’t happen overnight. Anyone who sells you that line has no idea how to deliver impactful and positive coverage of your story.
You have a story to tell. The media is always seeking stories. Our strategy and training ensures we give them what they want in order to benefit you and your organization.
We are not a Public Relations firm, nor are we Media Relations. We are strategists. There’s a difference. We build and execute strategic plans to get you in front of the proper media and then actively protect your brand. We teach you about the media leaning on decades of experience. As needed, we work with exceptional PR firms providing them a unique service for their clients. We have great respect for what they do and offer a very focused specialty.
We believe in a media strategy that does not include the phrase “Crisis Communications”. When properly prepared, there is no crisis. Being proactive is better than being reactive. We have you, your organization and your message prepared for any question or issue that should arise.
We protect your brand. We are in constant contact and work with legitimate media outlets. Our top priority is to ensure you, your message and your organization are never connected to any media outlet that would harm your reputation and your bottom line.
Our Leadership and Brand Training programs are designed to ensure everyone in your organization holds themselves to the highest standard, and is always aware of how broadcast, print, digital and social media can impact their personal and professional lives.
There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” media strategy. We are methodical in learning about you, your organization, what is important to you and your message, and will not hesitate to give you our opinion. We are not here to nod our heads and agree with everything. We are here to deliver an unparalleled level of success and brand protection.
