Crisis communications agency that protects you off and online
Does your business need to manage a potentially negative story?
Do negative articles appear on the first page of Google when your brand is searched for?
Is the media chasing your head office for statements, facts, or figures?
It’s a fact of life and business that from time to time things can go wrong.
As well as dealing with the situation from an operational standpoint, it’s important that communications around delicate and potentially damaging situations are handled correctly. Indeed, 80 per cent of people remember the communication during a crisis regardless of how well it was handled operationally.
That’s where a crisis communications agency comes in.

We can either manage any negative comments ourselves, or work with your in-house team to provide them with the necessary tools and guidance to effectively deal with any social media backlash.
Of course, prevention is better than the cure. If (and we applaud you if you are!) seeking to put measures in place to limit any negative impact on your reputation online, we can help. Find out more about our proactive social media marketing, or view our page on social media crisis training.
Online reputation management
Picture this: someone Googles your brand to get your contact number or to find out more about your product or service. Google brings back the search results and your site is top, but there are 2-star Google reviews and online news articles from trusted media that don’t shine your organisation in the best light.
A disgruntled customer on Twitter, a negative news article, or a bad review will erode trust between you and your existing or potential customers.
We are an award-winning online reputation management agency, and perfectly placed to help you combat such a situation.
Our integrated approach utilises search engine optimisation (SEO) to replace negative articles in the search results with positive and neutral pieces. In addition, we launch campaigns to ensure reviews correctly reflect how the majority of your customer base feel about your brand.

Crisis communications planning
The best way to tackle a crisis and limit any negative impact on your reputation is to have already prepared for it.
That’s why we work with businesses to devise a stringent plan to allow a quick reaction to number of situations. It’s swift action that can often be the difference between success and failure when it comes to protecting your reputation.
From scenario planning to drafting holding statements, our crisis PR plans put your brand in the best position possible to deal with any incident.
When a crisis hits your organisation, it may not be long before the media is on your doorstep, and they – and the public – will be expecting a response. Would you be ready to deliver one in an emotionally charged situation?
Our training helps nominated media spokespeople learn how to deal with the media and deliver professional interviews to help protect your brand’s reputation.
Whether it’s TV or radio interviews, our broadcast media training also equips attendees with the confidence to answer even the toughest of questions.
