Our years of experience in journalism mean we have exactly the right expertise to help you establish a good media strategy. What is the right moment to communicate, what is the media message, which media are important and what questions will journalists ask you? All issues that need to be addressed when systematically developing a proactive media policy.
Once you have a strategy, we can help you with preparing for media appearances. We practice statements and check whether the message is in order. In addition, we can produce ready-made media quotes. This involves making short video messages with statements that news editors can publish or quote directly. This increases your media exposure and reduces pressure on the communications team. Useful in periods when there’s a lot of media attention.
We advocate that external communications are handled by your organization as much as possible – by the management and the assigned spokespersons. That said, when appropriate, we can take on external communications and support your in-house communications team.
We can also advise you from the background, when you want a second opinion about your communication or media strategy. Sometimes this involves a quick scan to measure the effectiveness of your communications. Our advice can also consist simply of checking your press release before you send it to the media, or a qualitative survey of journalists and media.
Made to measure
Every media issue requires a tailor-made approach. If you want to know more about the possibilities, then make an appointment to get better acquainted with us or call Leo de Later (+31652304050).
