Media Relations

Earned media has long been heralded as one of the most influential mediums among stakeholders, consumers and government officials. Earned media is a leadership strategy and a positioning strategy that pays dividends in many ways. In fact, the power and cost-effectiveness of earned media is one of the factors that’s driving the integration of marketing, public relations and public affairs. Strategists on all fronts must be skilled in the art of market segmentation and market fusion because media channels are more diverse than ever.

As the media world continues to evolve, earned media is still the most credible and influential way to fuel your social media content and your relationships with online influencers. In fact, the development of fake news is giving traditional news sources more clout. Earned media can become a viral sensation and a social media bonanza. Generating meaningful news today requires strategic planning, research and personal pitches with multi-media support. It requires patience, persistence and credibility.
