Why PR Matters
PR, more formally known as public relations, is the practice of developing relationships with media outlets in an effort to achieve placements or features in their publications. By being featured in such outlets, your company is able to gain some of the trust that publication has already built with their audience. This transference can be invaluable in developing both brand awareness and a positive reputation with the public and your potential customers.
But PR is more nuanced than it sounds. Building these relationships, crafting a PR campaign, knowing how and when to reach out, and pitching it in a way each outlet will care about are all key steps in a successful PR strategy. At ScaleXM, our team of PR experts has spent countless hours developing connections and best practices so that they can better serve our customers in all their public relations needs. From outreach to crisis communications, our team can manage it all.
The outreach required for effective SEO link building strategy is a time-consuming practice. Our team will manage the entire process from start to finish to enhance your organic visibility.

What You Get From Our BlackBox Audit
Media Outlet Identification
Not every top tier outlet will be the best fit for your product or company. Identifying the best media outlets for your unique brand ensures your outreach is effective.
The way you reach out is just as important as who you reach out to. In addition to pitching your product or service, you must provide different story angles that could be published on each specific outlet. This is not one size fits all content.
Press Release Opportunities
Sharing new developments within your company is an exciting time and can help entice new customers to give your products or services a look. By identifying these opportunities and distributing them online appropriately, you ensure that they are seen by the right audience.
Sponsoring an appropriate event can help display your products or services to a captive audience. Whether it is logo placement throughout the event or providing samples, events provide a unique PR opportunity for a brand.
Analysis of Past Placements
We can’t decide where to go unless we know where you have been. Evaluating the history of your placements will help us to develop a new PR strategy.
