Public Relations

We Have Enough PR

Put Structure to your Marketing

Free PR is better than no PR. Yet, I am amazed at the number of companies I call upon to let them know how they can promote their Grand Openings for free. However they will tell me, “The PR department has everything under control and they have ‘their outlets’ of communication established.”

WOW, these same companies, just two decades ago, said, “A website is not needed, and social media will never help our business.”  The culture of business has not changed when it comes to expanding ideas.

PR departments are not SEO specialists, their social media marketing is limited, and many times they are stuck in the past when it comes to expanding ideas on how to market an event outside the standard TV, radio, and print media.

My advice to all is to never leave a stone unturned when advertising a Grand Opening.  Look for and accept all opportunities that arise. If one person sees your announcement and it cost you nothing, you are a winner.  Realize, your boss or client is paying you to use all the tools at your disposal to make their Grand Opening a success, so take advantage of them!

If your company is having a Grand Opening, market your event to as many people as you can.  Do not rely on “established communication outlets”, but do what is expected of you and seek out all opportunities to promote your Grand Opening.  The success of your Grand Opening lies in your ability to get the PR information out there, using all the outlets available at your disposal, to help ensure a successful Grand Opening.

A Viral Video Drives Customers To Your Grand Opening

Viral Video Generates Business

Viral video can give your business the jump start it needs in this competitive world we live in. It is hard to generate publicity special for a grand opening.  Just telling people that you have a new store or service does not  mean they are moved to become promoters and share the information.

What you want to do is create a video or slide presentation that drives them to your Facebook fan page.  Convert these people into excited fans.   Once they become a fan, you can provide them with your store grand opening activities.  Explain to them why your business is better, more efficient, convert these people into loyal customers.  Tell these people how your business helps the community and encourage them to share the information.

This is free advertising.

Do you realize, that if your family shares your viral video, it can reach hundreds if not thousands of people, in just a couple days.

Have a contest among employees to see on whom can create a video that goes viral.  Set some guidelines about how they represent the company and give an award to the person who gets the most videos.  Just imagine, you have 20 employees working for you and five of them make a video.  You have the potential to communicate thousands of views and you did not do anything but create the contest.

Just recently, a group of entertainer‘s made a friendly wager on who can get the most YouTube video views.  At the end of the video, we are promoting our Facebook fan page.  Hundreds, now moving into the thousands, are seeing these videos, and it only took us a couple hours to do it.

Remember to  promote the viral video on Twitter and LinkedIn. Use all the tools available to you to get the word out about your grand opening.

Here was my submission.  Again, the goal is to draw attention to your business.  Give people a reason to join your Facebook page then once they join start telling them about all the fun and excitement that is happening at your grand opening.

Shelves stock to compactly, staff is friendly, and there is excitement of the grand opening, so why not encourage people to review your business?  Yelp’s online community can spread the word faster about a business then the 10-foot rented hot air balloon with a sign on it reading “Now Open” that sits on the parkway.

Encourage them to Yelp Now Open

Strategically place signs that say “People love us on Yelp”. Plant the seed in their head when walking out the door.  Place a Yelp sign in the restrooms and say “Hey, if this bathroom is clean, Yelp it to the world.” Keep the grand opening buzz going by providing special offers for people who use Yelp Check-in Offers.

Yelp is a user review and recommendation website and mobile applet that allows users to rate their experience with a business. Exceeding 15 million reviews of business, new business should encourage customers to Yelp about their experience and should monitor its reviews.

Address Yelp criticisms with employees to correct problems and improve services.  Look upon Yelp as a business tool to help fine-tune your business.  Include Yelp into your Grand Opening plans and take advantage of the free input that will help you build a successful business.

Launching a Successful PR TV campaign

Synopsis: To launch a successful TV PR campaign, you need to think like a TV producer.   Meet their needs and they will meet yours.

A TV-oriented public relations campaign has three primary components, you need to create a compelling visually-oriented story, be able to pitch it effectively and know who to pitch it to.   Most people think they know which story or pitch will work for them, but they’re generally wrong.  The story about why your product or service is so good usually misses the mark because it’s not a story that meets the media’s needs, or connects with your target audience.  You need to think like your customer thinks, more importantly, you need to think like a TV producer.  You have to think backwards.  What does your local TV news program, the Today Show or Oprah need?  Study them.  Make notes.  Now give them a visually-oriented pitch that fills that need.  Think in terms of personal stories, anecdotal stories that others can relate to, and talk in a language that the journalist you’re pitching will understand.  When pitching a TV show, think visually, what can you offer that has a visual component.  What can you come up with that would give them a compelling TV segment?

For example, we represented an acupuncturist who specialized in acupuncture facelifts.  TV producers loved this segment idea.  It wasn’t a surgical procedure, so it wasn’t going to be too graphic, they could interview the acupuncturist, the patient, show a bit of the procedure in process and then show some after shots.   It was visual, different, and had to do with health and beauty and offered them a good hook.  We represented a fitness trainer who stared in a how-to fitness video; the pitch there was summer fitness tips.  She could bring a client with her and show different at-home, quick, and easy exercises.  This proposed segment reached a large target market, was easy to shoot and offered an interesting visual component.

So to launch an effective TV-oriented PR or media relations campaign, keep your message in mind, but think in terms of meeting the media’s needs.  Be concise, be clear, keep it interesting and never ever forget that TV is a visual medium.

Recession-Proof PR

Hard economic times are, ironically, the best times to aggressively launch a PR campaign. When times are challenging, often one of the first decisions a business owner will make is put a halt to any and all marketing; where in reality, the most important time to market a service or a business is precisely during those slow periods. The Chinese symbol for danger is also the symbol for opportunity. If you’re smart, you’ll focus on the opportunity aspect. Think about it, when the economy is slow you, more than ever, want to reach your target market and separate yourself from the competition. Most business owners and entrepreneurs react in the typical knee- jerk way by climbing into their shell and waiting for business to improve. So these times offer even greater opportunities; while you competitors are in hiding, get yourself out there. Be creative. Think of ways to use the recession, or economic downturn as a part of your pitch. If you’re targeting the high-end market, focus on the most expensive product or service you offer. Go against the flow and offer the media a different type of story. If you’re targeting consumers that are being impacted by the economic downturn, come up with a unique cost-saving offer or market an unusual product or service. Each business will need a different approach, but keep in mind that doing nothing PR-wise during economic tough times, will result in just that – nothing.
