Today’s business and social environment demands diverse and effective communications.
New media: social networks, blogs, vlogs... they‘re here to stay.
Old media: newspapers, magazines, TV, radio... they’re still here.
Blending them is an opportunity to reach more of your target audience. Effective communication is a two-way street. What are your customers saying?
In addition to working with our clients to develop and shout out their messages, Wilkins and Company helps them listen to their customers and constituents.
The result? Our clients’ goals and principles are clearly defined and communicated. This helps your larger marketing strategy on an everyday basis. And when surprises come — together — we’ll be prepared for them.
Trust our help with strategic planning, crisis management, corporate sponsorship strategy, promotion and message development.
Want effective media relations? Develop mutually beneficial relationships with key media individuals and organizations.
The media can be your friend. They enable you to deliver your message to clients and the public at large. And good media relations ensures reporters, writers and bloggers have what they need to do their jobs, which makes you a go-to resource for them in the future.
