Good Technical Articles are Often More Valuable than Ads
We hear a lot about content marketing and social media (and we believe in it), but in the industrial marketing and industrial public relations world we have always been about content marketing.
We cover the entire spectrum, from print ads to web development to social media - our public relations campaigns utilize all of the working parts to get very the best results.
The fact is that ads and PR have to work together. You have to pay for your free press. We typically have two or three key publications in each market that we schedule advertising in as well as supply them with technical articles. We then repurpose those articles into emails, webinars and videos. Rinse and repeat.
We cast a wider net for our PR placements but at least purchase listings in their Buyers' Guides and Directories. That also provides high-value web site links to our clients' home pages.
Some of our clients like print and some like online only but all pay a lot of attention to their industrial advertising & PR plan.
