Media Relations

More often than not, institutions, companies and/or organizations tend to shy away from proactively reaching out to online-and-traditional media outlets.  Yet to not share your news with those outlets is a huge mis-step.

 

While no PR/Communications firm can ever guarantee or promise any amount of media hits, we guarantee that your message will reach the appropriate media outlets, reporters, and/or editors it needs to generate interest.

 

Our Media Relations services include writing and distributing press releases [to help you promote your events, activities, and/or announcements], and individual/team promotion [i.e. flaunting your respective expertise to external media outlets, so that you are used/quoted as an industry expert in your field].

Our Media Relations experience includes:

 

  • More than doubled the media coverage of the Orlando Museum of Art’s top events, including its Florida Prize in Contemporary Art, which included statewide and national media coverage never-before received.

  • Garnered national attention for Clemson University programs and professors that, in the past, had typically been local/South Carolina-placed stories.
