Finding the appropriate venue for an event or the perfect publication for promoting your new business or product can be tricky. Even for large, national businesses. Most companies that can afford to promote on the national level do so through a wide array of demographics and media channels and when these want to focus their public relations outreach in local publications that target niche consumers, they can often saturate regional media channels.
Here are some tips for an effective public relations campaign when trying to cultivate local press for national businesses:
1) Know your target audience: Many large cities across the country are segmented into smaller neighborhoods, and those neighborhoods can be divided up even more. Do some research to determine the age range, languages used, and general behaviors of the locations to be targeted, this will help you better understand and narrow down the best pr marketing strategies that will sell your business.
2) Know the area: Try to create a link to your product or service to the area you are targeting. If you are trying to publicize your pool-installation business to the Jersey shore area, come up with unique tactics to interest the public.
3) Know what media channels an area population follows: Many smaller communities have at least one daily newspaper and a local magazine that reach them, but it’s important to tap into weekly community newspapers as well. Community newspapers are hyper-localized so they are the perfect outlet when a company is trying to target a specific market. Hyper-local social websites and blogs are also important to include in your public relations outreach.
Determining the appropriate channels is key when drumming up local press. It is also a good idea to consult with the regional experts. Consult with a local pr marketing firm to help streamline the process.
An effective tool in public relations and marketing is getting your business involved in charitable events throughout your community. Many businesses choose to donate to a local nonprofit organization, while others choose to take on a bigger role and host special events to raise funds for specific organizations.
When our client, Dieci Lifestyle Spa, wanted to host an event to benefit Susan G. Komen, we were excited at the chance to marry the salon business with a fun and unique event that brought awareness and raised funds for breast cancer research. We could have held a gala or auction, but we really wanted to get across the upscale nature of our client while touching on a young, hip audience, so The Hip Event created a high-energy fashion and hair show that melded beauty, music, shopping and charity. Not only did we raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research but we were able to create a unique fashion event that served out client and the local community.
Non-profit, or charity public relations has become a unique tool to gain awareness for a businesses and the charitable organizations. Dieci Lifestyle Spa’s Scratch the Surface event not only helped gained awareness and donations for a Susan G. Komen, but it also helped to put our client in the spotlight. Our public relations efforts surrounding this event helped our client gain notoriety in the local community as well as salon industry and they were featured in a variety of news outlets including: The Star Ledger, Day Spa and WXRK’s 92.3 NOW!
Organizing any kind of special event can be stressful. It can actually become a down right burden if you are not the creative type, do not have the time, or lack the skills to put on a show for other people. To save your sanity, hiring an event planner may just be the perfect thing to put on a perfect evening.
Event planners specialize in making your life easier and event unforgettable, whether it’s the annual office party or a rally for a cause, event planners are always a good tool to utilize.
Hiring an event planner is the best way to overcome any type of issue that can be encountered while putting an event together. The number one benefit of having an event planner is that it is a big time saver in your already busy schedule. Event planners schedule appointments, get directions, and take notes to help keep the event organized for you. They know you have better things to do then sit in front of the computer searching for the best food, venue, or music to have. This is why they exist.
Event planners also have the creative mind set to help put on a memorable event. It is an event planners job to stay up to date on the latest trends to come up with different ideas. Brainstorming is the basis for putting on an interesting and successful event. And hiring an event planner can also help you put your ideas into a specific theme.
While it may seem cheaper to plan an event yourself, it is actually more cost effective to hire an event planner. Event planners are used to planning all sorts of events. They have the ability to provide the vendors that work well with your budget, theme, and needs. Event planners build relationships with different vendors due to prior events held. Vendors enjoy working with event planners and are most likely to drop the price if they have a good relationship with an event planner.
Overall, an event planner has the sufficient staff and support in order to make your event go off without a hitch. By hiring an event planner, you can guarantee your event will be exactly what you envisioned.
