The Details: What To Expect

Your PR team will work with you to determine your goals and develop an individual PR strategy that highlights your unique point-of-view in the marketplace and targets your preferred audience and media outlets.

On an ongoing basis, your PR team will craft both compelling proactive pitches —
planned as part of your strategy, and reactive pitches — of-the-moment responses to the current newscycle, to garner coverage and interviews across a variety of platforms. Your dedicated team takes care of everything, from pitching to follow-ups to scheduling your media opportunities.

Please note, your campaign manager will work to accommodate your availability, but when it comes to securing top-tier coverage, active participation, flexibility and prompt response will gain you more features. Each month, the PR team will provide a report to communicate secured coverage, the impact of that coverage, and any pending pitches.
