Public relations campaigns require a whole lot more than just sending out press releases — or at least, they should. Mass emailing and cold-calling can get you only so far. If you really want your PR strategy to be effective, you’ll need to put more effort into networking, creating content and crafting pitches.
Want to make the most of your PR campaigns? Follow these expert tips from business owners and PR pros.
Get to know the media
Blindly sending out mass pitches to every news outlet you can find might get you some coverage, but it’s much more effective if you take the time to establish relationships with journalists at relevant media outlets. This means researching who covers which topics, finding out what interests them, and making personalized pitches.
“My best tip for planning and running a PR campaign is to get to know the journalists or targets you’ll be pitching ahead of time,” said Tami Brehse, freelance PR and digital marketing consultant. “Learn what they like to cover. Follow their stories and actively comment on them.”
You should also try interacting with them on social media to get more of a feel for their personality. Brehse suggested adding them to a Twitter list dedicated to their niche.
“Build an actual relationship so that when the time comes when you’re looking for coverage of your latest campaign, you’re reaching out to an acquaintance rather than just cold-calling a journalist who has no idea who you are,” Brehse said.
Develop a brand voice
Every successful brand needs to have a unique brand voice that is tailored to their audience. It doesn’t matter what your brand’s voice is, so long as it works for your business and you maintain it.
“Be true to your brand voice,” said John Znidarsic, senior director of social influence at The Adcom Group, a marketing and advertising agency.
“If you are disruptive, then be disruptive. If you are more reserved, that can work too,” Znidarsic said. “There is nothing worse than a PR campaign that reeks of inauthenticity. Be interesting. Have something to say. But, make sure you are saying it in your brand voice.”
It’s also important to keep in mind that just because one brand is saying something, it doesn’t mean you need to be saying it, too. Stick with what works for you.
“Say what you feel — not what you think someone in your position should be saying,” Znidarsic added.
Get your website ready
Before you run a PR campaign, Sam Anthony, co-founder and director of development at Web agency TheSiteEdge,said you need to make sure your website is prepared.
First, Anthony said you should make sure your Web hosting can withstand a surge of thousands of visitors.
“I cannot tell you how many times we have seen websites get [what we call] the ‘PR hug of death,’ where they hit the jackpot with a media placement and then their website crumbles from the traffic,” Anthony said. “Not only does the PR campaign suffer, but it hurts your general reputation and makes you come off as less trustworthy.”
You also need to make sure your website is set up to take advantage of any extra publicity you get as a result of a campaign — this means offering deals or exclusive content to visitors.
“Capture email addresses with an offer people actually want to take advantage of by giving them a PDF resource that truly offers value,” Anthony said. “Or have a sale running to ensure you are in the best possible spot to begin a business relationship with as many new customers as possible. Whatever your goal is, you just need to ensure that you put as much effort into capitalizing on the PR as you do setting up the PR opportunity.”
While you’re crafting your pitch, you need to maximize your time. Ben Landers, president of online marketing company Blue Corona, suggested using the 10/80/10 rule to make the most of your campaign and maximize the return on your time.
“I spend roughly 10 percent of my time connecting whatever we’re promoting to a trending topic,” Landers said. “I spend 80 percent of my time crafting the story and researching the journalists I’m targeting — their recent stories, areas of interest and anything else I can use to connect with them on a more personal level.”
Then, when you’ve finished your research and crafted your story, that’s when you launch your campaign.
“Once I’ve done all this, I spend the remaining 10 percent of my time actually doing outreaching and pitching,” Landers said.
Get the CEO writing
You won’t always have newsworthy press releases to send out, especially if you’re a smaller business, so one way to get recognition for your company or clients is to blog and write contributed content for other media outlets.
“One of the most difficult parts of doing PR for a small company or startup is that no one has heard of your company,” Maizie Simpson, PR and editorial professional at Magoosh, an online test prep company. “On top of that, you’re probably not constantly churning out huge product releases like Apple or Google.”
To keep your company afloat in a sea of press releases when you have no news to announce, Simpson said you should establish the CEO of your company or the client you’re working with as a thought leader in their industry.
“Help him or her create thought-provoking and authoritative articles related to his or her area of expertise, then publish them on your blog or pitch to a bigger publication,” Simpson said. “Either way, it’ll help get your company’s name out there, gain some valuable links for SEO, and give you something to promote in your slower news seasons.”
Most consumers likely aren’t even ready for Halloween yet, but in the retail world, early fall means holiday prep time. The days following Thanksgiving referred to as Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are widely accepted as the biggest holiday shopping weekend of the year, and though they may seem far away now, they’ll be here sooner than you think.
The key to ensuring a successful holiday sales season is early planning and consistent marketing, especially as a small business competing against retail giants like Walmart and Target. Experts offered their advice to help you make 2015 your best holiday season yet.
Shopping day guide
Not sure which days you should focus on for your post-Thanksgiving sales? Here’s a quick rundown of each sale day, its history and which businesses it best suits.
Black Friday. According to Visual Thesaurus, the day after Thanksgiving came to be known as “Black Friday” in the early 1960s, when Philadelphia police officers used it as a negative term to describe the city’s holiday shopping traffic jams. The name stuck and spread to other cities, and in the ’80s, businesses began put a positive spin on Black Friday by rebranding it as a day for stores to “get back in the black.” While larger merchants usually rule Black Friday with midnight (or earlier) openings and storewide sales throughout the day, many small businesses get in on the action with their own in-store and online discounts. Read our Black Friday tips here.
Small Business Saturday. As the name implies, Small Business Saturday is all about celebrating local merchants. Started by American Express during the 2010 holiday season, this sale day encourages consumers to “shop small,” and give independent retailers a fighting chance in between the huge Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales of larger competitors. Small Business Saturday is typically geared toward promoting brick-and-mortar retailers, and continues to grow in consumer recognition and spending each year. Read our Small Business Saturday tips here.
Cyber Monday. The days after Thanksgiving are typically associated with in-store shopping and trips to the mall. About a decade ago, e-commerce businesses began noticing that sales increased on the Monday after, when most Americans are back at work after the long weekend. A press release issued in 2005 by the National Retail Federation officially coined the term “Cyber Monday,” and by 2010, it had become the biggest online shopping day of the year, the Washington Post reported. Retailers who sell exclusively online love to run sales on Cyber Monday, but those who have brick-and-mortar and e-commerce operations can also take advantage of this shopping day. Read our Cyber Monday tips here.
Although Giving Tuesday is technically not a holiday shopping day, it’s worth noting that businesses are starting to get involved in this recent movement, which was started in 2012 as a way to give back to the community. Consumers are still very focused on corporate social responsibility, so it might not be a bad idea to add this “holiday” to your business’s calendar and let your customers know about any post-Thanksgiving donations, volunteer work or other charitable initiatives your store is involved in. Read our Giving Tuesday tips here.
What to do right now
Market to loyal customers. Acquiring new customers always requires more time and money than getting repeat customers to come back, and this is especially true during the holiday season. Matt Winn, senior marketing communications manager at e-commerce platform provider Volusion, noted that offering highly personalized discounts and promotions to existing customers can be very effective at encouraging holiday purchases. He also recommended promoting any loyalty programs or newsletters during the holiday shopping weekend to keep customers coming back year-round.
Stay active on social media. Social media has become a great marketing equalizer for businesses of all sizes, and it’s in your best interest to use it to your advantage leading up to the holiday shopping season. Spreading the word about your holiday incentives on social media not only puts you in touch with consumers who may be searching for a business like yours, but it also gives you an opportunity to be interactive with prospective customers looking for holiday recommendations, said John Oechsle, president and CEO of Swiftpage, a provider of business technology solutions.
“Promote early and tailor scheduled communications to your audience,” Oechsle told Business News Daily. “Personalize your communication and offer the type of customer experience — online and offline — that will turn a customer into a long-standing patron long after the holidays are over.”
Get mobile-optimized. Many smaller companies are concerned about boosting their mobile presence, and for good reason: Viswanatha Rachakonda, CEO of digital marketing company iQuanti, said that customers are increasingly more connected via their mobile devices, which is leading to earlier research and longer sales cycles for the holidays.
“The acceleration of app usage … will [lead to] purchases being made on the move on Amazon or other e-tailers,” Rachakonda said. “Ensure that your digital presence is mobile-ready, since the search may be happening on mobile. Your Black Friday sales may [also] be lower than expected. That has been the trend as sales cycles move online and go longer.”
Matt Johnston, chief marketing and strategy officer at app analytics company Applause, noted that push notifications on branded mobile apps can be especially effective, but only if they’re done right.
“A lot of retailers use [push notifications] like a blunt instrument, which does more harm than good,” Johnston said. “Really understand your users and their pace [to] use them effectively.”
Offer in-store pickup. For brick-and-mortar retailers worried about online sales eclipsing their foot traffic this holiday season, a smart tactic (if you don’t already do this) is offering an in-store pickup option for online purchases. Rodney Mason, chief marketing officer of parago, a customer engagement solutions provider, said that “buy online, pick up in-store” (BOPIS) promotions will create a better connection between the online and in-store customer experience.
“Getting foot traffic will be crucial to getting many retailers back in the black this holiday season,” Mason said. “The BOPIS promotion should prove to be a helpful one this holiday season. This strategy is a win-win — shoppers get an attractive deal during the holiday season, and retailers gain more in-store foot traffic and increase the likelihood of incremental purchasing.”
Offer additional value. Small businesses often need to charge a bit more than larger retailers for the same items, but that doesn’t mean you’ll lose customers. Freebies that add value beyond the product itself can help sway a customer who’s on the fence.
“Free gift wrapping or an extended warranty for certain items can help mitigate the impact of shoppers comparing the price tag of your products with those on another website,” Winn said.
Advertising is a whole lot more complicated than just arranging TV spots, creating billboards and launching ads on social media. There’s a lot of thought and strategy that goes into successful advertising campaigns, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach for businesses. Every business has different needs to fit and different customers and clients to reach, and every advertising platform has different options and requirements to fill. So how do you make sure your advertising strategy will work for you?
Before you launch your next big advertising campaign, make sure you follow these five important tips for success.
Reach the right audience
Before you put any time, effort or money into your advertising campaign, you need to make sure you know your target audience well. Without this important step, your campaigns will be a waste.
“If you don’t know your target market, it’s impossible to create effective advertising,” said Louisa Levit, co-founder of web development company Reliable PSD. “In fact, the majority of the work in advertising is compiling this target-market research.”
Levit said that to advertise to people, you have to really know them. This means you need to know who they are, where they congregate, what their personalities are like, what their deep wants and desires are, and the emotional reasons they have for seeking your service, Levit said.
“Any purchase a consumer makes is driven by an emotion. Uncovering these emotions and using design and copy to connect with them in a meaningful way is when successful advertising happens,” Levit said.
Make your campaign measurable
Big companies may be able to get away with throwing away money on big advertising campaigns that may or may not be effective, but small businesses have to be much more careful in their ad strategies.
“There are tons of advertising avenues available, but some are about as effective as throwing money in the wind,” said Nikolas Allen, author of “Heavyweight Marketing: Knockout Strategies for Building Champion Brands” (CreateSpace, 2014). “Maybe big business can afford to do that, but [small businesses] need to pick and choose wisely.”
This means small businesses need to focus on creating campaigns that are measureable, so they can track their results and get the most out of their budgets.
Allen said that ad campaigns could include promotion-specific coupon codes, landing pages, toll-free numbers or email addresses correlating to a strong, clear, concise and urgent call to action. And if your business uses Advanced Google Analytics, you can track essential data on the whole purchase cycle if you have e-commerce capabilities, Allen said.
Allen also pointed out that tracking doesn’t need to be high-tech and confusing; it can be as easy as asking your new customers and clients where they heard about you.
“Whatever tactics you use, tracking the results of your ad dollars will tell you whether or not your campaign was a success,” Allen said.
Location, location, location
If your business has one or more physical locations, it’s important to make the most of your company’s geography, said Marc Prosser, co-founder of Internet publishing firm Marc Waring Ventures and publisher at Fit Small Business.
“I recommend setting up separate pages on your site for each of the areas you service,” Prosser said. “That might mean a city and two or three suburbs, or it might mean individual neighborhoods. Use Google Keyword Planner to see what people are searching in your area, and focus on those targets.”
Once you set up these pages, you’ll want to keep them updated to maintain their search rankings, Prosser said.
“One easy way to do this is to post reviews from Yelp and other sources on your site,” he said. “That way, you’ll make sure your local pages are all up to date and high up on Google’s rankings in the areas you cover.”
