Use Media Relations to Generate Qualified Leads - $0.00

Use Media Relations to Generate Qualified LeadsOne of the biggest complaints we hear from prospective clients is, “We hired a PR firm, spent $5,000 a month, and got nothing.”

You’d be shocked at how often we hear this. It makes us sad.

It’s not good for the industry. It’s not good for the profession. And it’s certainly not good for our peers.

Because of that—and because Gini Dietrich started a business with the idea that PR can and should be measured—we have developed a process that allows media relations to generate qualified leads for the sales team.

The backbone of the tactic is the same: You are building relationships with human beings who can produce influential pieces. But the way you track effectiveness and bring qualified leads into the fold is a bit of marketing and sales combined with the more traditional PR.

With this on-demand video, learn how to use media relations to generate qualified leads.

Your sales team will love you. Your chief financial officer will love you. Your executive team will love you. And we will begin to change people’s perceptions of PR.
