​Creative PR and marketing campaigns

​Creative PR and marketing campaigns give you something worth talking about, and then, we’ll help you talk about it .

Why do I need a creative PR and marketing campaign?

There are more ways than ever before to communicate with your target audience. Online publications, blogs, podcasts, webinars, social media, video streaming, events, newsletters, instant messaging, direct mail, newspapers, magazines, radio, television – the list goes on…

But the rapidly evolving communications industry and media landscape poses many challenges for brands looking to get noticed and achieve results that actually benefit their business.

So what are the challenges?

  • There’s a lot of competition: There are so many other businesses trying to attract your audience, so you need to stand out and offer something better if you want to win their attention.
  • Consumers are more savvy: They just don’t want to be sold to. They want to be entertained, inspired, informed and educated. They’s bombarded with messages 24/7 and know how to block out unwanted noise. If you want them to take notice, engage, remember your message and become a customer, you’ll have to do something special.
  • Journalists have different objectives: Yes, they want a good story, but they have other pressures too. Today’s journalists are expected to meet the commercial objectives of their publisher, which may mean getting more people to click/subscribe/buy. So ask yourself, how does what you are pitching help them?
  • Bloggers and influencers: Some blogs attract hundreds of thousands – even millions – of loyal fans and followers. Their creators have their own criteria when working with businesses, so if you want to build a relationship with them to promote your brand, a generic press release is probably not going to cut it. And if you want to target influential business leaders and organisations that you want to align your own brand with, you'll need another strategy all together.
  • The pressure is on you (and us): Yes, it’s nice to secure coverage and see your name in print, but unless it’s helping you meet your wider business objectives – what’s the point? More than ever, we need to prove that marketing and PR activity is delivering results.
