The building blocks of an effective integrated PR campaign
We create a campaign tailored to your business objectives
“I thought a construction PR agency just tackled media updates. So what does Outwrite’s PR activity entail?”
Outwrite integrates all communication channels to make sure you get the best bang for your buck. We don’t work in silos and our PR solution is tailored to each individual business’ goals and objectives.
In a nutshell we use the PESO model, which focuses on paid, earned, shared and owned media.
This means your PR campaign could involve media relations targeting trade media, blogger outreach, paid social media promotion, social media training, PR for SEO, news articles for your website, and email communications.
PR and content for construction
We can also help identify local and regional influential individuals and organisations, such as business leaders, lobbying groups, business representatives such as the British Chamber of Commerce, and politicians and councillors.
This will assist in building local profile but also in testing local sentiment as part of public engagement, or if you have inquiries or consultations to deal with.
Outwrite has built relationships with journalists at the top trade magazines as well as national and local press, which means we’re able to get your project and brand the attention it deserves from the people you want.
But it’s not just about getting positive coverage in the media.
If you need to take your project directly into the community, we can assist with engagement opportunities such as exhibition events or develop and produce print newsletters that actually get read.
Knowing how to connect with the community can be the difference between a development securing planning permission or failing at every hurdle.
Brand journalism and content marketing
Brand journalism, or using your own communication channels, is a vital part of the PR mix to achieve desired results.
You have your own audience, whether it’s on social media, your website or email marketing, and we will work in partnership with you to make the most of these platforms to build and enhance your reputation.
Tactics include web-only news, social media training, social media campaign delivery, paid social media and e-newsletter support.
In addition, it may be advantageous to carry out PR news interviews and share the footage online.
PR for SEO
Being visible in Google’s search results is often a key goal for many brands. Did you know integrated PR and SEO work hand in hand?
Digital PR boosts websites naturally and organically – both of which are loved by search engines.
Whether it’s fresh content, brand engagement or incoming links from trusted third party sites, pull the power of the PR into your SEO to supercharge results.
Issues and crisis communications
Whether it’s a purely online reputation management concern, or a full-scale crisis involving the media, a swift and effective response is crucial to limit any negative impact.
Planning at the outset and conducting media training will also place you in the best possible position to confidently handle any scenario.
