WEEK-BY-WEEK CONTENT SUMMARY:

  • Week 1: The value of PR
    PR is the strategy, tactics, and actions you take to positively motivate people to start talking about you. We look at the differences between PR and marketing, where PR fits into your company’s communication strategy, and the concrete benefits PR will bring to your business.

 

  • Week 2: The power of WHY
    One of the fundamental questions that companies fail to ask themselves, but they always should, is WHY? Why do you exist? Why are you the people to solve the problem? Why should people care? We look at how to form an individual WHY, before moving onto finding the organization’s WHY, so that everyone can understand what it is you’re trying to achieve.

 

  • Week 3: How to plan a PR campaign
    A well functioning business has all aspects working towards a common goal. We look at setting SMART goals for your business and PR efforts, establishing your audience and objectives, competitor research as well as building an ecosystem map for your media.

    We look at some essential tools for you to run your PR campaign effectively including using a Q&A, content calendar, and how to build a list of media contacts.

 

  • Week 5: The elements of great PR content
    We consider the things that qualify as being newsworthy as well as the credibility points you can use to back them up in your story. We also consider any sensitive topics that may arise and how to plan for those when media and influencers start asking questions. Finally, we look at some of the great tools you can use when trying to shape that content and then organize the types of content into essential pieces which you need in place all the time.
