Public and Press Relations (PR)

You may not think you need PR but any company that advertises its products or has a significant number of customers, partners or suppliers can benefit from PR. PR is about managing your communication message and whether you deal with government or private end customers and whether yours is a small or large enterprise PR should be a part of your marketing portfolio. In particular, effective PR can be very low cost. Combining PR with advertising and Social Media will see your publicity presence and your sales increase.

Some MarketKing PR capabilities include:

Maximizing publicity for the smallest possible cost
MarketKing staff have had great success in leveraging their relationships with media outlets to get your story aired in prin, radio or TV. Positive and planned publicity has the lowest possible cost when media outlets run with your story and enhance the communication of your company's goals.

Press Releases
MarketKing staff will write your press releases for you and arrange for them to be delivered to targetted media outlets that suit your goals. A recent story about an Australian company's efforts to hire skilled employees was picked up successfully by several magazines and had a positive effect on the company's recruiting strategy.
