“In addition to expanding our digital capabilities, we have executed several successful creative programs ranging from trend surveys and sponsored content negotiations to partnership programs for our clients. Taking an integrated PR approach to include these elements is what drives success for clients. Trend and topical surveys: We have conducted surveys to uncover trend data to strongly position clients as a leader in niche spaces. This has allowed us to secure additional earned media through executive interviews and Q+As, and inclusion in industry trend stories in leading national outlets. In order to control the narrative and position our clients as industry leaders, we have worked with leading meetings & group media to target a niche audience of meeting planners and event organizers to create thoughtful, informative, and impactful branded content.”
