7 Reasons to Hire 919 Marketing As Your PR Agency

1) 20+ years experience getting our clients in the news

Our track record of success spans an impressive roster of brands, from health care to hair care, fast food to fashion. 919 Marketing clients appear regularly in TV, newspapers, consumer publications, business magazines, syndicated columns, online publications, radio and more.

As a result, we have long-standing contacts with a deep roster of executive producers, editors and reporters. And since many of our PR team members are former media members themselves, we know what makes reporters tick.

2) We know how to craft your brand story to generate tons of coverage

Take a look at the media outlets featured above. Our clients have appeared in all of them and thousands more. From product features to company profiles, we generate the kind of brand energy and momentum it takes to elevate companies from contenders into market leaders.

3) We only hire the best of the best.

919’s PR Practice is staffed and managed by an “A” team of seasoned experts. We selectively recruit reporters, news anchors and executive producers from the largest and respected TV newsrooms in the country.

Our media experts know how to spark a reporter’s interest, how to differentiate your brand from the competition, and how to craft a pitch to maximize placement opportunities – all skills that are essential to getting our clients stories placed with hundreds of national and local reporters. Meet the 919 team

4) Senior staff stays involved.

Unlike the typical scenario where the pitch team quickly hands your account off to junior staffers, our senior level staff members are hands-on from the very beginning. As a result, 919 account teams quickly translate a deep understanding of your business and the news patterns of your segment into sustainable media coverage.

5) We play to win.

We have an insatiable desire to drive big national press for our clients. We take the time to find select members of the press that will cover our clients’ stories and cultivate those relationships. Writing and distributing a press release then expecting magic to happen doesn’t work. It takes work and experience to craft creative pitches that will push reporters’ buttons.

6) Our approach has been refined and proven to work over thousands of campaigns.

An effective PR program is no accident. You need a plan, a road map. And you can’t create a road map unless you know where you want to end up. We work with you to set clear goals and expectations, then develop a strategic plan to achieve them.

How We Do That

A) We conduct a comprehensive media scan using the most sophisticated syndicated services to rank media outlets by priority, identify reporters most likely to cover your story.

B) Develop a highly detailed PR work plan with clear objectives and clearly defined priorities. This plan drives the implementation of a sustained PR campaign based on measurable ROI goals. Every media campaign is developed and executed based on pre-approved story angles.

7) We prepare you for a crisis before it happens. 

It’s not an “if a crisis” will happen, but rather a “when a crisis will happen” situation. We’re behind you the whole way to make sure the right decisions are made that will reduce negative brand exposure. We’ll help you put the right spin on the situation, intervene with the press as needed, and protect your good name.
