Brainstorming

The first step of our joint work is brainstorming. Our team of PR experts will come up with a number of different approaches to your specific PR campaign. We explore the stories we need to tell, and provide you with options on the ways to tell these stories, and the journalists and media outlets to share them with.

You will of course express your preferences and land on the one approach that best suits your company needs. Campaign ideas have different characteristics, with some focusing on the idea or content, while others focus on the spread, reach, values, or step in your company’s progress. But the best campaign for you will be chosen, with the potential for the highest return on investment for you.

Industry research

After we have a clear and structured plan of what we’ll be doing, we will conduct industry research. This entails research on the industry trends, competition, audience and audience preferences, media outlets in the specific area, etc. This research will give us deep insight into the most relevant channels to release your story.

Additionally, we use media monitoring tools to gain even deeper insights into the behavior and likes of your target audience, as well as get feedback on the visibility of existing content - which parts are more entertaining, where people click, where people stay, etc. We then ensure that nothing has been missed in our process to release your campaign.

Creating your campaign

Our team of PR experts are ready to start crafting your campaign. Depending on what we have agreed upon with you, we will create the exact and specific type of content that you need. The team knows how to apply unique and creative angles to your stories, which has been derived from experience, coupled with the industry knowledge and gathered data. We additionally take into account journalists and their preferences and demands for content. The combination of these aspects will bring you a campaign from start to finish that will bring your vision to life.

Media outreach

Now that your content is up and running, it is time to pass it on to relevant media outlets that will publish it for your target audience to see. Our wide network of connections with media outlets and journalists allows us to pick out the most relevant platforms that are appropriate for your type of content and the industry you operate in.

Because of the built trust and reliance with journalists, it is important to pick the right ones, since a campaign is a long term story that will be maintained and followed up on. So the right journalists are essential, and we make sure that we score you the perfect outlet for your needs and industry.
