Some mid-market companies first ready a new product, and as launch date nears, call an agency for promotional help, devise last-minute tactics on the fly and hope for the best. anthonyBarnum strongly advises against this approach and operates from a paradigm that constructs public relations initiatives as essential components of a business process built to align with senior management vision.
This ePaper walks through a typical anthonyBarnum engagement, explaining how the agency fully immerses itself in core business objectives, interviewing top company executives and studying founding documents, sometimes including the initial business plan. Understanding a business’ fundamental market advantages and competitive position often drives marketing objectives. The identity of the target audience, the content of most value to that audience and the greater trend context helps anthonyBarnum determine the correct mix of public relations, social media and owned content that most efficaciously serves a client’s needs.
