Frequently asked questions about reactive digital PR
What is Reactive PR?
Reactive PR is an ‘Always On’ approach to securing valuable links and coverage. Our team of experts will monitor the headlines in top-tier publications, local press and trade media, for breaking stories that your business could contribute to through insights, expert comments and data.
By conducting an ‘Outreachable Content Audit’ that can be used all year round, we can respond to journalists with lightning speed to propel your business into the spotlight – whether that is to feature in the UK’s biggest household news titles, niche industry publications or local media.
Why is Reactive PR important?
The news cycle is accelerating. ‘Big’ news stories that would appear in the headlines days after originally breaking will now evolve over 24 hours. The story will come in and out of focus, alongside other headlines, or transform into a new story that vies for consumer attention. Reactive PR keeps pace with the news agenda so that you don’t have to. We provide journalists with timely insight, quickly, which enables us to put you and your business at the centre of each story as and when it evolves.
Would Reactive PR work for us?
In order for our experts to be able to build exceptional links and position you in the conversation, speed is vital. Working against the 24-hour news cycle, competition and tight journalist deadlines requires businesses, in some instances, to be nimble and responsive. Especially if journalists require additional comments, insights or data. Our ‘Proactive Reactive’ approach means that we prepare the content we will promote in advance, or draft comments on your behalf for swift sign-off. However, now and again, journalists will ask for interviews and commentary at a moment’s notice. Being that all-important voice for the journalist increases our chances of success and ensures that journalists will think of us for their next story.
Why does Reactive PR work?
Journalists are looking for trusted and authoritative sources to validate their stories and to add further value to the reader. This is where you come in…
Journalists need information quickly and we are experts in being able to provide them with exactly what they need in order to write their story and make it ‘newsworthy’.
By offering a unique point of view, or additional insight on a trending issue, regularly, we can represent you as a credible source of information for future opportunities. This will ensure your voice has a platform for the industry you work in.
Are links and coverage guaranteed?
As much as we would love to guarantee links and coverage, it isn’t possible as all coverage is earned rather than paid. Whilst this strategy may not always lead to immediate success, pitching your business and insights to journalists on a regular basis can open the door to future collaborations. Offering quotes and comments on a regular basis will ensure journalists remember you for future opportunities.
