What We Do

Media Relations

We build strong relationships with the media on your behalf by crafting newsworthy, relevant stories.

OUR APPROACH

We believe that a steady drumbeat of positive media coverage can help build your brand, advance your programs and change perceptions of your organization. We develop unique media strategies that complement your goals and position your organization as a leader in its field.

After establishing relationships with media outlets,  we build on this momentum by crafting newsworthy hooks to help ensure that your story gets told.

Common media outreach challenges include:

  • Identifying the specific media that your audience consumes
  • Establishing useful contacts at relevant media outlets
  • Crafting a pitch that piques a reporter’s interest
  • Preparing for an interview or press conference

WHAT WE DO

To bring your news to the attention of the media, we will:

  • Pitch local, regional and national media outlets
  • Arrange editorial board meetings
  • Prepare talking points, press kits and other media materials
  • Conduct interview training for your spokespeople
  • Write op-eds and seek placement in target publications
  • Organize press conferences and other public events

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Meyer Memorial Trust’s strategic redesign centered on how, through equity, we might have a greater impact in Oregon. Prichard Communications helped us turn that focus inward, to our communications systems, to streamline the process of turning ideas into effective messages.

Real change begins with real relationships. We can help spark these relationships with good old face-to-face human interaction.
