Media relation is basically the relationship between a brand developed with journalists, editors or reporters. Over the years, communications from the brand have evolved from just a single large push channel or press releases to multiple options to reach out to consumers through journalists. Outside the traditional media channels, these days, social media has also become one of the most used channels that offer access to journalists. With several pitch tactics, PR executives can bolster business growth through effective media relations.
The roles of public relations encircle helping brands build and maintain a steady relationship with the media houses, which eventually eases the process of communication with the target audience. Media can be the best source through which brands can expand their reach and gain attention to their stories, and public relations can be the best medium to foster healthy conversations between the companies and the media. By drafting robust strategies to build strong media relations, companies can borrow and effectively leverage the reach of the media. Also, the media houses can be seen as the most legitimate source of information and getting stories covered by different media houses can help a brand build credibility and trust among customers.
PR agencies don’t follow any particular one-size-fits-all approach to media relations. Through PR, companies can leverage media relations tools to make their promotions easier. The process is neither complicated nor labour-intensive. The primary area, to begin with, should be intensive research, through which PR executives can make the list of prospective publications and journalists. Once the research is over, the second step is to make the pitch, and if the journalists pick the story, the media coverage is done, and the media relations enhance.
When it comes to online marketing, companies have a host of channels to get their message out to the audience. These days it is a common practice for companies to communicate through their own official website, blogs, accounts on social media platforms and email marketing. Businesses can also use PPC advertisements or product reviews by journalists to inform customers regarding their services. Once the product or service reaches the public sphere through media coverage, companies get to build credibility and trust in the market.
