About the event

West Sussex Recover & Rise #8: Using PR to Build Brand Visibility | Training image

The West Sussex Recover & Rise 2021 program is a series of 9 FREE online workshops designed to give small businesses a robust toolkit to not only survive through another year of unpredictable times, but to thrive. 

These sessions have been put together by experts to help business owners define, communicate and market in the right way to attract and retain customers through 2021. 

Using PR to build brand visibility

Getting in the paper or on the radio isn't as easy as it used to be.  Journalists are inundated with press releases every day and media outlets work with skeleton staff.  Learn the details about what makes the best stories and how to confidently pitch them to the local media.  This session will also explain why PR and SEO are a marketing match made in heaven to seriously raise the visibility of your brand.

Who is this event for?

This workshop is ideal for small business owners and micro-businesses who want to use public relations (PR) alongside their marketing activity to increase their visibility. Ideal for people who have tried to get media exposure but not been successful, for people who don't know how PR works and what makes a good story and for businesses that want to use PR alongside their SEO.

Workshop Content

You will leave this workshop knowing:

  • What PR is and how it can benefit your company
  • The different types of media target
  • What makes a good news story
  • What journalists are looking for

Shake It Up does what it says. Tells you what you need to know (and might have forgotten) and shows you how to do it better.
