How PR Can Help You Tell Your Story | 19 IDEAS Blog

Successful PR showcases a mastery of storytelling — determining the right narrative, how best to tell it, when to share it with the right community. This serves as the foundation of how brands and their audiences relate to and communicate with each other, and it can help improve every facet of your business — from marketing and operations, to leadership and reputation.

Great PR can help shape your story to effectively communicate it with audiences that matter to you — whether they be customers, employees, investors or others who would benefit from knowing more information — the way you want to share it. Here’s how our public relations experts can help you:

We develop your message.

What should you be saying? And, just as importantly, how should you be saying it? We’ll help you determine the key perspectives, questions and talking points that align with your brand’s story. Then, we’ll help drive that communication with any audience through story pitching, media training, employee engagement, community outreach strategies and more. By utilizing consistent messaging that’s authentic to you, we can help build trust and reputation with your audiences.

We’ll prepare you to have the right conversations.

It’s not easy to get the story across perfectly. But through our comprehensive media training services, we’ll help you and your spokespeople feel more comfortable in front of reporters for print, web, radio and TV, resulting in stronger interviews and quote attributions that resonate. But training goes beyond just interviews — we’ll help make you a better communicators, so you can more confidently deliver effective messages in any public setting.

We’ll find — and tell — your story.

What do you do and why do you do it? Why should your audience support you in your endeavors? By identifying and strategically developing your organization’s background, differentiators, opportunities and industry sensitivities, we’ll help you craft stories that build positive credibility and depth for your brand. Then, we identify the right strategy and channels to amplify them.

We reach out to reporters.

With a robust local and national media network, we can connect you with the reporters who will bring your story to life. We pitch story ideas that bring your important news to those who matter most. And through this, we help foster meaningful relationships with journalists, who can see you as a potential resource for industry stories connected to your work and expertise.

We solidify and streamline internal communications.

Public relations doesn’t stop with journalists. An effective internal communications strategy can help companies engage with employees — leading to a stronger workforce that feels connected to your company’s mission and work. Regardless of industry, scope or size of a company, employees want to understand their goals, and — like any stakeholder — they want to trust that their employer will support them. Without knowing this, how can they be expected to do their best work? Our team can help develop scalable strategies that can keep everyone confidently informed on updates, direction and their importance to the bigger picture — helping you to build a culture around a more informed and productive workforce.

We ensure you have a strategy for any occasion.

We’ll help you formulate either a proactive or reactive approach that’s needed, refine the story, and deploy our messaging and outreach strategy to support your success.

We have multiple ways to measure success.
