  • 1. Creating a Buzz to Build the BrandCreating a Buzz to Build the BrandThe Power of Strategic Public Relations for OTC Presented by Phil Morabito, CEO Brian I. Block, Sr. Acct. Exec. Pierpont Communications, Inc. Pierpont Communications, Inc.
  • 2. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 3. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Situation Analysis – You have set time aside, paid money and organized your booth to connect with industry colleagues and decision makers. – This is the focal point of an annual push. – You must capitalize on OTC.• Solution: Create BUZZ
  • 4. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Press conference realities in 2011 – How does your “news” illustrate an impact on your industry? – You must identify an area of need and position your company/product as a solution. – You don’t get a second chance to blow your first impression.
  • 5. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Ugly editorial realities in 2011 – Get over yourself. The news isn’t about you. – Sell the story, not the company. – It’s no longer about the questions. What do you want the public to think, feel or do. – News is defined as “conflict.”
  • 6. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Getting down to business – Start early – minimum 4 weeks – Who is your media inner circle? – Work the show daily – Answer the “who cares” question – What can you offer that competitors won’t or can’t
  • 7. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Maximizing editorial opportunities – Before every interview, think about what headline you would like to see as a result of your briefing and create three key messages supporting your position – you can’t afford to waste time figuring that out during the interview – Make sure the spokesperson knows this
  • 8. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Maximizing editorial opportunities – Don’t tell when you can show. Bring a customer to your interview who can illustrate the solution you’re explaining
  • 9. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Social Media – Before • Create your profiles where it matters - @OTCHouston, Facebook • Join conversations ahead of time • Create a database of digital information – During • Live updates – status, pics, video • Networking to lead traffic to your booth • Save some for later
  • 10. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 11. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 12. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 13. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Social Media – After • Blog coverage • Share photos, tag visitors • Reconnect afterwards – Bonus • Wireless hotspots • Location based social networks – Check in and check it out – Foursquare, Facebook and more
  • 14. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Location Based Social Networks – These use the GPS function on your mobile device to locate you and share that location and additional content. • Content can include pics, reviews, videos, etc. • As people use this to “check in” to places, special offers or information can be made available to them. • Check out Foursquare and Facebook Places
  • 15. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 16. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand
  • 17. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Do’s and Don’ts – Media Relations – DON’T hand out a paper press kit. If you do, just put a sign on your back that reads “I love the ’80s.” This is the electronic age- don’t be extinct, be distinct. Try this unless you want to look like this
  • 18. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Do’s and Don’ts – Media Relations – DO treat all your vital media as you treat your best prospects: • Stay in touch • Give them something you don’t give everyone • Remember that they have lots of other offers for industry sources • You MUST differentiate yourself
  • 19. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Do’s and Don’ts – Media Relations – DO treat your media sessions like a first date: • Ask about them • What are they hearing? • What’s on their mind? • What are they looking to find?
  • 20. Creating a Buzz to Build the Brand• Do’s and Don’ts – Social Media – DO update your status often with relevant updates. – DO work on picture or blog posts while the conference is going on. – DON’T make business connections through social networks with profiles that are too personal.
