When it comes to press coverage, the media landscape is more challenging than ever. There are fewer journalists working at fewer outlets, and more competition for their attention. Gone are the days of mass emailing a press release and crossing your fingers. The foundations of good PR, however, remain the same: mutually beneficial relationships, relevance, and a good story. Highly targeted, personalized pitches that provide useful, transferable content are the key to effective story placement- and to cultivating lasting relationships with media and influencers.

A crisis communications plan will minimize damage to both reputation and revenue when crisis strikes. Your first statement should be public within 30-60 minutes, so whether the crisis has been simmering or arrives out of the blue, being prepared and having a framework for quick response are essential.
The cardinal rules of crisis communications are:
- Respond early and honestly.
- Do the right thing.
- Keep messaging consistent.
The process begins with a comprehensive Vulnerability Assessment to identify a broad spectrum of potential crises and determine your stakeholder groups. From there, you are ready to develop a Crisis Response Plan with clear timelines and protocols, and a Crisis Response Library containing pre-written statements for a variety of scenarios.
Readiness and response are the cornerstones of crisis communications. Developing your plan on a sunny day will help you ride out the storm and minimize damage to your organization's revenue and reputation.
