At Pauley Creative, we pride ourselves on doing construction PR differently.
If you’re still taking a “media first” approach to your construction PR, it’s time to think again. Is the media getting exclusive access to your content? This is one area that Pauley Creative differs. We make you the publishers of your content. Meaning your PR strategy isn’t a PR strategy at all, but a brand growth strategy using content and PR as a vehicle.
“The biggest thing that struck me with Pauley Creative’s approach to PR is that it just slotted into our overall marketing activity. They’ve re-educated us, and the way we’ve done things. From a PR perspective; we’re questioning what we do (a press release or case study) and what we want to get from it. Everything has a place and purpose and, even better, it’s all measurable. Pauley Creative flipped PR on its head for us… you don’t need a PR strategy, it is a powerful tactic in your integrated marketing strategy.”
Lizzie Wignall, Head of Marketing Communications, Saint Gobain Insulation.
The key difference between us and a traditional PR agency is we see PR as a tactic that sits in your communications strategy.
We don’t let your PR activity drive your content strategy. The reason we do this is to make sure you get the right content, to the right people, at the right time. We plan, coordinate & execute content production, SEO, the media and social media in an aligned approach. Most importantly, we measure exactly what is working and what is not.
Addressing PR in its silo means you forget about how it works with other channels, and working PR in conjunction with other channels will ensure you get more traffic, enquires, projects and revenue.
We join up your PR activity up with other channels like search, PPC, social and email to ensure you get the most impact for your budget. This joined-up approach means you have true consistency of messaging across all channels; one of today’s biggest marketing challenges. We use detailed and planning tracking technique, meaning we truly measure its impact, including the effects our efforts are having on website traffic, goal conversions and search performance.
We know that a good content strategy will lead to your PR activity but also other tactics such as social media and email. We don’t just build a strategy and leave you to do the rest. We also help you plan exactly what content you should release to get the best results, and our team of writers will use their technical knowledge to ensure engaging content is created. We have vast amounts of experience producing case studies, news articles, blogs, whitepapers and everything in between!
“In essence, your clients content packages and ebulletins are outperforming our average by at least 50% per item which I can put down only to your expertise as an agency”
