Lindsey Groepper Public Relations

  1. 1. MONTH Public Relations: How to Keep your Brand in the News (when you have nothing to say) #GoInboundMktg
  2. 2. Who am I?
  3. 3. Who are you?
  4. 4. What we’re talking about today: • Stealing • Stalking • Using People
  5. 5. PR does not equal “press release” …at least not all the time.
  6. 6. When do you write a press release? • New partnerships • Key hires • New product/service announcement • Company milestone (growth, acquisition, etc.) ** NOT your chili cook off, employee of the month, or new brand logo)
  7. 7. So, you made an announcement.
  8. 8. Stalking
  9. 9. Stalking • Your boss - for his perspective on the industry and trends he/she is seeing (story mining session) • Your salespeople - for insight into what they are hearing from prospects and customers, and how you differ or what problems you solve • The media - to get on their radar and in their good graces for when you need them
  10. 10. Stealing
  11. 11. Stealing • Old blog posts • Pull portions of a whitepaper or eBook and use as expert commentary • Piggyback off competitors’ news and steal their thunder with a unique perspective • Write byline articles based off someone else’s commentary
  12. 12. Using People
  13. 13. Case Study Campaigns • Identify happy customers with meaningful results • Ask if they are willing to: 1) share their experience in a formal case study 2) speak with the media about their experience • Set aside time to speak and uncover: • Problem • Previous solutions tried • Why looked at your brand initially • Why chose you over competition • Direct benefits of working with you (dollars saved, dollars earned, etc. ) • Compelling quotes
  14. 14. Will it work?
