What is Public Relations

Public Relations, or PR, is really the art of persuasion and involves three key things; building your organisations profile or brand, delivering key messages to target groups, and protecting your organisation’s reputation.

Some PR is proactive and planned in advance, like getting earned media or using social media to build your brand and get key messages across to the public, key stakeholders, or government.

If you’re seeking to influence change, be considered for government funding, or building your reputation as an industry expert, Good Talent Media will create a detailed PR, Social Media and Publicity plan so you can start breaking your big goals into a series of achievable steps.

Another branch of PR involves responding to unfolding events and positioning yourself in a way that doesn’t damage your brand and which might help to improve it.

When damage control is required, we will help you navigate the challenges of responding to the media while protecting your reputation and building your brand values.

If you’re getting or you’re about to get bad press, we’ve got the experience, media contacts, and strategies to help you frame the debate and get your side of the story out there with a crisis media plan.

Why you need a Crisis Communication Plan?

What is the value of your organisation’s brand? How long would it take you to rebuild your brand after a poorly handled public media event or scandal? These are questions every organisation needs to ask itself.

If you don’t have a crisis communication plan, you should. A crisis communications strategy is a key piece of brand insurance. Award-winning companies like Ardent Leisure and Dreamworld are clarifying studies of PR disaster zones, where considered PR opinion was spurned in favour of legal advice.

Legal advice during a crisis is important but you need to consider how the public and your core demographic are perceiving the crisis and your response to it.

Media and brand crises are more likely to pass quickly when victims, families and friends are cared for, leaders take responsibility and key partners are engaged to ensure the same problems never happen again.

If you’re in or about to experience a media crisis, we can prepare you for it and manage your relationships with the media throughout it.

What’s the process?

Good Talent PR is a well-respected specialist in the provision of publicity services for not-for-profits, Government agencies and peak industry groups.

The steps are simple;

  1. We work with clients to develop stories and media releases,
  2. We decide the best media to target at local, state or national level,
  3. We pitch your stories to journalists, editors, and producers.

We get most clients their first interview within a month. Once we secure an interview we’ll help you prepare to ensure you get the right messages across.

Reputation & Crisis Management

Crisis Management : How to Deal with a PR Crisis?

Good Talent PR specialises in the reputation management of Melbourne companies, including immediate crisis management.

Our services cover reputation management for dealing with traditional media outlets (Radio, TV, Newspaper) and online reputation management services (Social Media, Website). They include rebuilding your online presence through internet reputation management strategies.

With online platforms like Google, negative reviews can cause significant harm to your reputation. We contact the site that has made the review about you, join the conversation and manage your reputation. Ultimately, what we want to achieve is to suppress negative links and to build more positive reviews about you, until your reputation is repaired.

Our experienced team of journalists help manage companies and organisations that suddenly find themselves in crisis, or always seem to be in crisis.

What to do when a crisis strikes?

When a crisis blows up unexpectedly an organisation can suddenly find itself the subject of intense media scrutiny. If you’re dealing with an unanticipated media crisis, we can deal with reporters and the press on your behalf in order to contain the issue, and then address it with messages that work to optimise your reputation.

We manage your messages across all of your communication platforms effectively to convey the message you want. We help companies control publicity crises by controlling the story, and the best way to control a story is to have experienced journalists writing it.

PR is all about Storytelling

Facts aren’t stories. But the way facts are put together by a journalist to tell a story can be critical to your reputation. Sometimes you need a professional to put the facts into a context that explains your organisation’s position.

That doesn’t mean ignoring the facts, it means engaging with them in the best light. Organisations that deal with a PR crisis proactively, honestly and clearly are much more likely to communicate better and keep their professional reputations intact.

Crisis Media Planning

A crisis media plan gives CEO’s and executives a plan and framework that enables them to proactively respond to a crisis within their organisation or industry.

A crisis plan makes everyone’s roles clear, identifies and anticipates possible future problems, and outlines exactly what to say and what not to say should a crisis arrive.

Organisations that manage crisis situations well limit reputation damage and are able to quickly help shape the media narrative breaking around them.

Crisis Communications Plan

A Crisis Communications Plan is crucial to managing unexpected media emergencies that may affect the image, reputation and even the sales and productivity of your organisation.

A Crisis Communications Plan enables you to respond immediately with positive content, precisely and confidently during an emergency in the hours and days that follow.

Ongoing PR Crises Management Plans

If you’re experiencing serious ongoing issues, we engage and educate journalists and news editors about your industry and company. We get your message across, get you quoted correctly in articles and get online articles corrected if they have given a negative review or they are grossly inaccurate.

We can also arrange meetings for your CEO with influential journalists in Melbourne and Sydney to help your organisation build relationships and break down stereotypes.

If your industry or organisation is constantly getting negative press, that won’t change until you start participating in the conversation. Our business reputation management plans can help you be more proactive than your competitors and gain a publicity edge.

PR and Social Media Strategy

Social Media is a dynamic space and vital connection to audience. We start with a clear roadmap suited to your organisation and industry, then develop a tailored Social Media Plan you can easily implement.

Your PR and Social Media roadmap should have clear timelines, events, and measurable goals both online and offline to increase your exposure and strengthen your brand.

By getting the human touch points right, your PR and Social Media strategy will start connecting with your target audience; whether that be in Melbourne, Victoria or Australia.

The steps in the plan are as follows:

STEP ONE – WORKSHOP

We get the key players into a room to collect your dreams, plans, stories and ideas. The workshops are fun, interactive, educational, and inspirational. In these strategy workshops we discover the unique elements of your business. It’s like panning for gold. Clients often don’t know that they’re sitting on amazing stories or social media opportunities.

This facilitated workshop allows participants to identify risks, agree on key messages, clarify target markets and develop a media strategy.

Example Content (subject to customisation)

  • Establish your vision, mission and specific media objectives
  • Identify your audiences
  • Develop media messages
  • Identify key influencers who could support your stories/messages
  • Identify key ambassadors who could support your stories/messages
  • Identify media risks and develop counter narratives
  • Identify case studies that support your messaging
  • Decide which media to target
  • Consider possible events
  • Consider using philanthropy as a tool to attract positive media
  • Consider how all of the above could be used to enhance your social media profile
  • Consider how all of the above could be featured in video content

STEP TWO – ACTION PLAN

After the workshop, we research your industry and identify opportunities in Melbourne, Victoria, nationally or internationally. We develop a Social Media Strategy which includes a 12-month schedule of key dates, an events timeline, targeted social channels, digital advertising options and social media style protocols.

WHAT YOU’LL GET:

News Cycle

A good PR and Social Media plan is written with your city’s news cycle in mind. We create events and stories that position you to connect with topical media stories to elevate exposure for your organisation and spokespeople.

Your audience

We create your brand’s social persona, marketplace value proposition, multiple and or singular target markets.

Social Media Style Protocols

We establish your organisation’s online look, feel, and persona, and give your team a clear set of rules: How often to post, what to post, how to deal with online trolls. You will get clear community management guidelines, along with clear font, voice, style, authority, sales and call to action guidelines.

12-month PR and Social Media Strategy Action Document

Within four weeks of the workshop, we present you with a detailed PR and Social Media plan you can either implement yourself, or that we can implement on your behalf.

Organisational Interview Kit

You will receive an interview kit which contains key media messages, sound bites, industry and organisational stats, trends and data, and case studies to support those messages.

Campaigns

Melbourne Public Relations (PR) Campaigns

We are a PR campaign agency that has accomplished many successful PR campaign management projects in the past. We combine three key elements that come together to make an impactful PR campaign. At Good Talent PR our professional and dedicated senior consultants bring those elements together to deliver a successful campaign that meets your needs and delivers results.

The elements of a successful public relations campaign

  • Identify and be clear on your main goal or objective
  • Identify your target audience/s
  • Develop clear messaging to achieve your objective including a call to action

Goals and Objectives

There are many ways of approaching a public relations campaign. The design of your plan will depend on your main objective.

Do you want to:

  • Raise awareness of an issue
  • Increase brand identity
  • Increase your sales or donor base
  • Influence government policy on a social or economic issue

Target Audience

Once we have the main objective clarified we will identify the target audience and key influencers and decision makers we need to reach out to.

Finding your target audience is essential to achieving your objective. You need these people to understand your PR efforts and get on board with your stories and brand identity.

We will identify the media outlets best suited to reach the people you need to talk to.

Messaging

Every Public Relations campaign needs a strong and clear high-level key message to lead the campaign and provoke the change you want to see or motivate people to get behind your call to action.

Our expertise in developing successful PR campaigns will assist you to clarify and deliver the messages needed to reach your target audience and meet your campaign objectives.

We will make sure your campaign messaging (e.g. press release) reaches the people you need to influence and educate. Our combined expertise in journalism and PR sets us apart in the industry. We know how to work with you to create the messages and how to pitch to our media relations – journalists and news editors in targeted publications.

Internal Communications

Internal Communications Agency / Internal Communication Training

As the leading internal communication agency, Good Talent PR specialises in developing effective internal communications strategy, running workshops and training for your organisation.

Internal PR and External PR

Many organisations overlook internal communications when developing a communications strategy. However internal communications are just as vital as external communications. Having a well designed internal pr communications strategy that aligns with your organisations’ strategic plan will ensure a healthy organisational culture that engages staff and improves productivity.

What is Internal Communications

Your workforce can be your greatest asset and advocates or your loudest critics. How often do you hear of an organisation that is not valued by its workforce. “It’s not a great place to work; they don’t really tell us what’s going on or ask us how we think it is going. We don’t feel valued.”

Alternatively, in an organisation with a good culture and health internal communications you are more likely to hear staff comments like; “It’s a great place to work, we have a staff newsletter that we contribute to and regular updates from our CEO and executive team that allow us to give feedback.”

Internal communications plan should be developed with your HR team and aligned with your organisational strategic plan. Having a strong internal communications strategy in place is vital to achieving your goals and objectives. It includes activities such as:

  • Regular internal newsletter that allows for staff contribution and feedback – tailored to the culture of your organisation
  • Regular CEO and executive/director updates (high-level summary of important issues or advocacy campaigns for example)
  • Intranet or electronic staff noticeboard
  • Staff surveys
What are the benefits of having an internal communications strategy?
  • Build staff satisfaction
  • Contribute to healthy organisational culture
  • Engage staff and increase productivity and workplace pride
  • Align staff practices more closely with your vision and mission
How can Good Talent help you?
Our PR team will meet with you and discuss your current internal communications and develop a proposal to work with your executive team and staff reps to get a strategy in place.
Elements of developing your internal communications strategy include:
  • GTPR review your strategic plan and current internal communications status
  • GTPR conducts a half-day workshop with leadership team and front-line staff representative (this would ideally be a small group of 4-6 people)
  • From this workshop, GTPR develops a draft internal communications strategy that aligns with your strategic plan
  • GTPR provides final strategy and assists in implementation phase if required
Contact us today to get started on developing an effective internal communications plan/strategy that will help you achieve your organisations objectives and goals and build a great organisational culture.
