You fear a ‘lack of control’ over what journalists could write about your products Open Tabbed Content

No control?

Product PR is unique in the way that you’re giving each journalist, influencer and blogger the opportunity to build a connection with your brand. Their experience with your product will dictate how they review it and recommend it to others. These reviews are often glowing or written objectively without injecting personal opinions or emotions. 

Rarely, brands receive a negative review of their product from journalists, influencers and bloggers.

Negative reviews can occur for a number of reasons, including: poorly communicated or incorrect product details, ethical concerns such as its environmental impacts, labour practices or general safety issues even down to courier management and how the product arrives with the journalist, influencer or blogger.

It is our job as experts to get to know your products, as well as you do, so we can passionately deliver all of the key insights and details about them. This will provide journalists with the information they need to review your products accurately.

It’s essential to note that journalists have a professional obligation to assess products objectively, and their reviews are rooted in genuine concerns or issues with the product’s performance, quality, or ethics.

Spreading news to a mass audience

Product PR is a great way to generate greater brand credibility and trust which increases the return in positive reviews from both journalists and your consumers. If you’ve received a few bad reviews about your products, the best thing you can do is acknowledge them and remedy the issue. The more focus you put into enhancing customer experience, interacting with consumers and including their rave reviews on your website, the quicker you can build back your business’s reputation.

Frequently asked questions about product PR

What is Product PR?

Product PR is a marketing strategy that uses a brand’s products to gain greater visibility and awareness of its business to increase the chances of sales. A business can adopt Product PR strategies when they are planning to launch a new product, or, generally increase brand recognition for its wider product/service offering.

Why is PR important for new product launches?

New product launches require support for a number of reasons. They perform most successfully when a buzz has been created around the product, increasing its visibility to your intended audience which leads to greater feelings of anticipation and excitement. Product launches are also an effective way to enhance your brand’s image. It’s an opportunity to discuss why this product was brought to the market, why consumers will love it as well as where they can purchase it from. This can ultimately result in waiting lists for the product leading to boosted sales.

Is Product PR right for our business?

There are a few questions that you can ask yourself to determine whether or not Product PR is the appropriate strategy for you and your business:

  • Do you have surplus samples of your product? 
  • Or, could you arrange additional samples of your product that can be used to share with key journalists, influencers and bloggers?
  • Do you have access to hi-res imagery of your products?
  • Does your new product/ wider product range have a USP?
  • Are your competitors performing well due to a Product PR strategy?
  • Is your product tied to a trend that everyone is talking about? If so, increased visibility is essential in order to get noticed in time 

The most important question…

  • Has anyone heard of your products before? Does your key audience know they exist?

If you answered ‘yes’ to the first set of questions, then Product PR is perfect for you!

What results can we expect from a well-executed Product PR strategy?

A successfully planned and executed Product PR strategy will generate a number of positive results for you and your business. These can range from: increased brand visibility, positive brand perception, media coverage in news outlets your audience engages with, competitor advantage and improved customer loyalty and sales.

Why is Product PR a successful marketing strategy?

Product PR is a successful marketing strategy because it builds credibility and trust with your key target audience. Reviews of your product, provided by top-tier publications, influencers and bloggers will encourage consumers to buy your products if they’ve been positively recommended by impartial sources. 

A trust-driven strategy is becoming even more important for brands as Google places more emphasis on E-E-A-T (Experience, Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness). Google uses this quality criteria to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web pages and websites. This strategy is essential in driving visibility for your brand online.
