What We Can Do For You:
Understand the Golf Game and the Golfer
MB and her staff have been in the golf industry for 25 years. We know what works and what doesn’t and the culture of golf. We can add value to your marketing with the familiarity we have on how golfers think, what they like and know they purchase items.
We strategize your PR schedule week by week. You will know who we are talking to in the press and what we are saying. Every press lead is a careful case study that we nurture from start to finish and this all starts with good planning. Each week we introduce new press to your product so you have a steady stream of good reviews coming in. We also develop quality e-kits on your product so the press has everything at their fingertips when they say ‘yes’ to a pitch.
We will be accountable on all articles. You will get a detailed report letting you know when articles will be coming in along with the names of the media outlets, who is writing the review and where we are step by step in the process. We send these reports out monthly. It is called my ‘blue book’ and becomes an impressive roster of articles good for use with investors or the Board of Directors, sales meetings and for stockholders in your company.
The articles we garner are great information to use in company newsletters and internal relations. We can send these articles out to your sales force or key employees as the articles appear in the press.
We are very helpful in setting up media appointments for clients and relaying how that press person thinks. We love to have out clients do interviews and set them up all the time. We will train and coach you in these as well as set up each one personally so each story has a unique slant.
Our PR is heard around the world. We have excellent contacts in Canada and represent Canadian companies. We are strong with media contacts throughout Asia and Europe and get articles for clients throughout the year around the globe. Please see our ‘Articles’ section for many international stories.
