Powerful Impact of Third-party Content in Consumer Decision Making

Patrick Brightman - 04/17/2014

patrickI had a conversation recently with the director of audience targeting for one of the largest digital networks in the country, who was kind enough to visit our New Jersey public relations offices to discuss an interactive program for a client. He brought a treasure trove of interesting data but one key takeaway for me was that most folks in the digital marketing community believe that today’s consumers need to see an online ad about nine times before they react to it.


Grassroots: Building Your Business from the Ground Up

leeDon’t get me wrong. I’m not saying there aren’t companies that are super successful regardless of whether or not they offer incentive…now; but I’d bet good money that wasn’t always a luxury they enjoyed.

I’ll try to paint a picture for you. Let’s say you created a new granola bar. “This will be the most successful, high-earning granola bar in the world!” you say. But wait. There’s something missing. Oh, yes…people (i.e.


Managing A Press Conference

Dave Scelba - 03/11/2014

For the Boys and Girls Club press conference featuring Victor Cruz the well-known wide receiver of the NY Giants football franchise we had a specific agenda to follow. And while our primary goal was to get at least 50% of the reporters from each media category to the event we also had a secondary objective.

So to craft a newsworthy pitch story make sure it’s short, timely, emits emotion and will be impactful to viewers, listeners, readership and online followers. To get reporters to a press conference you’ll need a good hook and your story is the hook included in all media alerts and invites.

So, holding a frivolous non-newsworthy press event will be viewed as a total waste of their valuable time and damage, rather than bolster, your company’s reputation. That’s why it’s important to respect a reporter’s schedule and choose the proper media venue or event to make your announcement or tell your story. Good public relations firms have the experience and relationships to help make the best decision for their clients.
