Our bespoke service will help you identify vulnerabilities and prepare for potential PR problems. For future use, we will develop crisis communications policies and guidance and put them to the test. By working with you to create desktop exercises, your policies and strategies will be put into practice in controlled, safe situations.
Your reputation can make or break your business, that’s where our expertise comes in. With a bespoke communications strategy we can help build confidence in your product or services, allowing word of mouth to spread your messages organically whilst providing key opportunities for a solid base for growth.
Managing your reputation is not just about dealing with negative articles or social media posts, it’s about doing the groundwork beforehand. We'll build your brand so that it’s in the strongest position and able to cope with anything that comes your way.
With our company supporting your business, you will be in a strong position to shout about what you do, sharing your key messages with your target audiences, with the peace of mind that, should a crisis occur, the best advice will be on hand to protect your reputation and stabilise your business.
Already have a social media policy that needs tweaking? Or maybe you don't even know where to start. Whatever your starting position we can help you to achieve your goals using social media. From setting up accounts, managing their day to day activity, designing social media campaigns, working with influencers on blogs and posts through to making decisions on how and when to respond to queries; we can support your objectives.
Not sure how to respond to negative reviews online? Wondering which comments you should leave alone and which you should take time to respond to? We can help to advise and handle your social media responses directly or develop guidance to enable your people to understand when to leave the trolls alone and how to respond to genuine issues.
Having worked on high profile national policing and government projects, the company has extensive experience of producing communications plans for business change programmes. From delivering internal communications to teams based at multiple national locations to ensure that colleagues are on board with changes, through to the production of media responses carefully designed to explain the need for change; the team can manage and deliver business change communications, whatever the size of your project.
At the beginning of each project, we take the time to identify the needs of every client, focusing on the results required for a successful campaign.
A strategy is developed and a timetable of delivery agreed.
