Don’t be overbearing but don’t let your event, cocktail party, golf outing, holiday party etc. occur without some marketing message. Create a theme that focuses on one key or new advantage your company offers and low-key that message.
It’s good to write your press release to communicate some news about your company. Even better is to communicate that news story in a way that it also enhances your brand and brand message.
Many people take it easy in August, but not those who want to hit the ground running for September into fall. Outwork your competition by using August for planning and gearing up.
Leverage speaking to thought leadership. Promote it before and after. Feature video of your talk online. Use event hashtags. Invite key people to attend. Use follow up newsletters etc. to stay connected with your audience.
Make sure your public relations pitch to the media communicates the value writing a story on your topic will have. You don’t just need a good story. You need a good story that is of value to the readers.
Stay on top of trends in your industry. No matter what you want to communicate, if it’s not a trending idea or couched in trending terms, the media probably won’t cover it. #publicrelations
