How Can PR Help Your Brand?

Understanding the difference between Public Relations and Marketing can be very helpful when it comes to strategizing effective ways to build brand awareness, increase revenue, drive web traffic or simply create a buzz. As PR professionals, we also appreciate how both marketing initiatives and traditional public relations efforts can work in tandem with one another to drive results. The “marketing umbrella” contains powerful promotional tools, one of which is PR. At times, PR is difficult to define because it can be a challenge to associate a specific “return on investment”, whereas with a paid advertising campaign, dollars spent can be tracked back to direct sales or return. That said there is absolutely no denying that effective and strategic public relations initiatives can launch a brand to great success or continue building momentum. Here are three free things that fall within the world of PR that you can start executing today to enhance your brand, and aid you achieving your goals and objectives. 

Media Relations – Building relationships with local, regional, and national media personnel or ‘on-air talent’ can sometimes be a daunting task. That said, looking up the ‘contact us’ page on the local news outlet’s website to introduce yourself and your business to the folks most likely to cover your industry is the perfect place to start. Simply saying hello, providing feedback on a relatable article they have published, or weaving your way into a recent story they covered are all effective ways to begin building long-term, and hopefully beneficial relationships with those in your market ultimately responsible for spreading news and sharing your story.

Social Media Engagement and Influencer Relations –PR today is less about writing and sending press releases, and more about valuable engagement, especially on social media! Commenting, sharing, liking, and loving social media content on a personal level is a surefire way to contribute to the conversation in a very valuable way. By being persistent and consistent with your engagement on social media platforms, you are more likely to grow your organic reach and build brand awareness in an impactful way. Engaging with local social influencers via direct messages, comments or shares may seem like a time consuming task that will fall on deaf ears…or blind eyes; however, rest assured that patience is a virtue and valuable interaction digitally can – and will pay off! 

Content Creation – Building content that you own is critical! Imagine a world where Instagram or Facebook no longer exists and the digital audience you have built is no longer present to engage with, or see your brand daily. Generating content that is your own to share among your audience will help you continue to build your brand – even if the outlets for distributing that content change or evolve over time. Specifically speaking, you should focus on your website, building a strong email database and most importantly – cultivating your relationships! We encourage clients to spend their valuable time writing informational white pages, building a mobile and user friendly website, and to always go the extra mile when publishing content that is theirs – ultimately positioning them as the expert within a given landscape. 

There is no denying that PR can incorporate a lot of different things these days; however, focusing on effective media relations, spending time on personal engagement, and building valuable content will never go out of style!

SBDC, SCORE, WBC Partner to Bring eCommerce Startup Series to the Upstate

GREENVILLE, SC | March 9, 2021 – Three small business and entrepreneur support organizations are partnering to present a three-part series on starting an eCommerce business.  The Greenville Area Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Piedmont Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) and the CommunityWorks Women’s Business Center (WBC) coordinated the training to reach a wider audience across the Upstate and highlight each organization.

The leaders of the three organizations are looking forward to coming together to present this series.  As related SBA programs, sharing resources and ideas magnifies all of their efforts to support entrepreneurs looking for in-depth eCommerce assistance.  The SBDC’s Earl Gregorich, Ana Parra, the new program director of the WBC and Jerry Smith, a volunteer with Piedmont SCORE who leads their training programs, quickly agreed on a concept, its importance and how they would divide the work.  They planned the curriculum together over a few meetings and are promoting the whole series to each of their entrepreneurs and business owner clients.  The UEE and Ten at the Top are adding additional promotional support for this important series for Upstate entrepreneurs.

“Ana, Earl and I are excited to bring this eCommerce workshop series to the local small business community.  The collaboration of the WBC, SCORE, and SBDC will provide a diverse approach and ensure this important topic is fully explored,” said Jerry Smith, SCORE Mentor.

The workshops are all virtual and hosted by a different organization. They launch on March 15th at noon beginning with “eCommerce: Is it Right for Your Business?” provided by the WBC.  On April 15th at noon, Piedmont SCORE will present “eCommerce: Planning for Success”.  On May13th at noon, SBDC will wrap up with “eCommerce: Finding the Right Technology”.  This series will provide attendees with the information they need to determine if selling online is right for their business, the steps to set it up properly and how to evaluate and utilize the many technologies available and necessary. 

“All of our organizations emphasize the need for small businesses to form strategic partnerships.  This training provides a great example of how partnering can be beneficial to all those involved,” said Earl Gregorich, Greenville Area Manager, SBDC.

The Upstate Entrepreneur Ecosystem (UEE), an initiative of Ten at the Top, serves the role of increasing the capacity and ability of the ecosystem to help entrepreneurs be more successful faster.  Erin Ouzts, in her role as facilitator for the UEE for Ten at the Top, saw that each organization was offering important parts of eCommerce startup and management training, but it had been a while since there was an overview of the steps to launch.

“The pandemic has created an unprecedented demand for online access to products and services”, said Erin Ouzts, Director of the Upstate Entrepreneur Ecosystem. “Any education we can provide for our entrepreneurs and business owners about how to evaluate and successfully launch a website to sell online, is another step toward helping our local businesses survive.”

The SBDC, SCORE and WBC are supported in different ways by the US Small Business Administration (SBA), and while they work together with common clients and cross-over programs, having all three collaborate on a single 3-part event is rare.  All regularly provide workshops, training, mentoring and support for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Entrepreneurs tend to stay with the original organization throughout the time they need support. This series will help entrepreneurs understand that each group is equally important and helpful to their potential success. 

“Collaboration is always a good idea and right now when there is such a critical need, a partnership among resource partners helps us reach more business owners and provide additional tools to keep businesses sustainable,” said Ana Parra, WBC Program Director.

ABOUT SCORE | SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors, is dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals. Since 1964, we have provided education and mentorship to more than 11 million entrepreneurs. SCORE is a nonprofit organization and a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Thanks to this generous support from the SBA and because of the selfless contributions of our more than 10,000 dedicated volunteers, we are able to deliver most of our offerings at no cost.

ABOUT WBC | The CommunityWorks Women’s Business Center (WBC) serves women throughout South Carolina by empowering entrepreneurs through advocacy, outreach, education and support. The center focuses on serving women of color and those who may be economically disadvantaged – working to offer comprehensive training and counseling to foster business skills. The WBC builds upon CommunityWorks’ mission to provide opportunities for all through equitable lending, investing and financial education.

ABOUT SBDC | For more than forty years, entrepreneurs have turned to South Carolina Small Business Development Centers (SC SBDC) for help expanding an existing business or starting a new enterprise. Through free consulting, low-cost seminars and links to resources, the SC SBDC helps jump start startups and makes existing businesses thrive. SC SBDC consultants work with companies in all stages of development – from a person with an innovative product but no idea how to move forward to the owner of a company looking to capture new markets. A statewide organization, the SC SBDC has 20 area centers in communities across South Carolina, serving both urban and rural business needs. The SC SBDC helps more than 6,000 clients each year.

How to Make Instagram Work For You and Not Against You

Social media is everchanging and it is critical to stay up to speed with new features, algorithms and more. Most recently, Instagram has proven to take over the social media market from both a personal and business standpoint. How can you ensure that your brand is working with the flow of the feed, and not against it? Due to the fast-paced nature of social media and its effectiveness of sharing information, it is imperative to have a few strategies up your sleeve to attract and engage with quality followers that help elevate your brand.

1. Captivating Imagery

You have probably heard this many times, but imagery is everything with social media, especially Instagram. It is key to post unique photographs that attract people to your account and establish an online presence to keep followers, both new and old, loyal to you. The average user spends about three seconds viewing your post, therefore, post graphics that make them stop and engage!  If you don’t have easy access to a professional photographer or high-quality photographs, try using a consistent filter on all of your photos to establish visual continuity throughout your page. Some very simple ways to maximize your visual assets are as easy as the following:

  • Turn a video into gifs or stills
  • Make a series of photos into a slideshow video or carousel
  • Use multiple images from the same photoshoot for different purposes
  • A #ThrowbackThursday never hurt anyone
  • Redesign images and feature them as Stories

2. Creative Stories & Reels

Recent studies have shown that people are more likely to watch Instagram stories than they are to take the time to scroll through their Instagram feed. Creating an Instagram story takes very little time and is a fun way to give followers a peek inside your typical workday. Not only are Instagram stories an easy way to engage, but they also increase your brand transparency and show who you really are behind the camera. Whether you make a video with the team, share sneak peeks on what you’re planning to do next, or simply take a photo during your break, consistent stories are guaranteed to pay off in the long run.

Similar to TikTok, Instagram Reels offer you the ability to create fun and engaging video clips through the Instagram platform. With a 30-second time limit, these videos have been proven to increase engagement and followers for various reasons. Different from a typical Instagram post, the main benefit of a reel is their prime location on Instagram’s Explore page. The Explore page allows Instagram users who may not be following you to see your content and then visit your account directly—this is a major way to get in front of a new audience!

3. Calculated Hashtags

Many of our clients ask, “What do hashtags even do for my account, it seems like an added task with no benefit?” Our easiest answer to this question is that hashtags make your posts and account discoverable on a broader scale. When you use hashtags that are relevant and trending, your account will then have a higher chance of appearing when users search content by hashtags. Getting in front of people within the same industry as you, that may not be existing followers, is an easy way to increase engagement and potential following. There are two different types of hashtags that we recommend implementing into your Instagram, industry specific hashtags and branded hashtags.  Using a combination of these is guaranteed to elevate your account and get you in front of the right audience

4. Consistent Engagement

Engage, engage, engage. Whether it is a simple thumbs up emoji or a “like,” engagement will transform your Instagram account. Actively liking and commenting on your followers’ posts, shows loyalty and garners engagement back to your page. Other ways to ensure you are engaging effectively is to exchange DMs, bookmark posts you love, tag other accounts in your posts, and reshare relatable content from accounts. This is an easy to task to forget, so we recommend setting a reminder every day on your phone to actively engage on social platforms. You will be surprised at how much a few minutes of engagement can pay off in the long run!

Trends in Digital Media Communications

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that the world we live in has become reliant on digital communication. It is easy to become overwhelmed with information being thrown at us from an overabundance of platforms, people, and outlets. As a leader in our industry, it is critical to navigate the swarm of digital communications and engage appropriately on a variety of platforms, while continuing to discover new trends that ultimately encourage our client’s success. Below are a few digital communication trends we expect to see grow in popularity in 2021.

  1. Enhanced User Generated Content: User Generated Content (UGC) is any type of content (reviews, images, videos, audio, etc.) that users publish themselves on online platforms stemming interactions and information shares that develop thought leaders. The onslaught of invasive online advertising techniques quickly lowered consumers’ ad tolerance. The rise in popularity of ad blockers and search engines like DuckDuckGo are indicators of the intrusive targeting of online consumers. UGC is now welcomed by many brands as an organic and trusted source to reach and gain credibility with their audiences. 
  • Increase in Influencer content: Throughout 2020, users flocked to social media platforms to engage with friends, family and people around the world. Influencers’ personal lives, reviews and opinions were consumed at a higher volume than ever before. The human interaction that users craved was tapped into through live-streams, videos and more frequent posts. Influencer marketing is a strategy that is effectively used to promote products and services through partnerships with popular social media users who have a large, highly engaged audience. Influencer marketing is a key strategy that increases reach across social media audiences, builds brand trust, grows following on social platforms, and increases social traffic and sales.
  1. Surge of Purpose-Driven Initiatives from Brands: As social media platforms progress, users become more knowledgeable. It is critical for brands to position themselves as sincere and trustworthy through goodwill efforts and community relations. Brands that give back, listen to the world around them and respond are more trusted by consumers than those that refuse to acknowledge the tides of change. Purpose-driven initiatives such as donations to non-profits, volunteer work in the community and sponsorships are pivotal for retaining and building trust in consumers. We always encourage our clients to highlight their community involvement as it is proven to generate trust and value from online followers, while also increasing reach and popularity from those who may not be committed followers yet.
  1. Expansion of video marketing: Community is key and the use of creative movement and audio through videos engages consumer viewership of products and services. Videos humanize brands by allowing products and services to become more tangible. Users engage visually and auditorily simultaneously which produces a stronger retention time. Another trend in video marketing is production simplicity. We see this through the increased popularity of shorter clips such as Tik Tok videos, Instagram Reels and live streams. Brands are engaging with consumers by sharing bite-sized clips of their products and services rather than publishing longer and professionally polished content. Organic video sharing has been known to increase brand loyalty and engagement, as it highlights the “realness” of products and services as it pertains to everyday life.

Meet Our Spring Interns!

Smoak PR is thrilled to welcome three new Spring interns: Irene, Lizzie, and Lindsey. As college students interested in improving their communications skills, Smoak PR will prepare them with knowledge and experience in the public relations industry. To kick off the semester, each intern introduces herself and her goals for this time with Smoak PR:

My name is Irene Biganzoli and I am a junior at the University of South Carolina Upstate, majoring in Communications Mass Media, with double minor in Business & Entrepreneurship and French. I chose to follow this career path because I am fascinated by how words and effective messages can change how one’s story or passion is perceived. Communication is an everchanging field which amazes me, bringing to light modern platforms and utilizing them in the most efficient way. This fresh and dynamic side of communication is what brought me to choose it as a career. While studying and researching mass media and marketing tactics in the classroom, I hope that this amazing opportunity at Smoak PR will show me how these tactics are applied in the real world, teaching me new ones and reinforcing the lessons learned. I hope to become a better communicator, online and with Smoak PR clients and team, gaining hands on experience in areas like media relations and strategic planning.  

My name is Lizzie Burnett. I am a senior at Clemson University studying Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management with a concentration in Travel and Tourism. As one might guess, I have a heart for travel and adventure, and I want each day to look different and allow creativity in the workplace. One of the major trends in what I have studied is the importance of local pride, events, and having a great sense of involvement in the community. This is largely what attracted me to an internship in Public Relations. I am hopeful that this opportunity to intern at Smoak PR will teach me valuable lessons in how to inform the public on ways to get involved and improve the connectivity of a community. 

My name is Lindsey Cottle. I am a junior Communication Studies and French double major at Furman University. My favorite aspect of PR is getting to work with people, learning about their creative visions and helping make those a reality while simultaneously meeting their brand’s more pragmatic needs. I have a passion for travel and for education – which, to me, are one in the same – so I’m constantly trying to see more of the world, meet new people, and interact with cultures and mindsets different from my own. At the root of all these interactions is communication, hence my major: in our hyperconnected world, people seem to feel more disconnected than ever. This phenomenon underscores the importance of effective and meaningful communication, both digitally and interpersonally. I hope to refine the communication skills I’ve developed during my time at Furman through this internship with Smoak PR to better connect with others, and to serve my community by engaging with the public at a local, regional, and global level! 

Although we are beginning our internships virtually, we aim to emphasize collaboration and connection in order to make the most of this opportunity at Smoak PR. Each of us has a similar educational background, and yet brings her own unique set of skills to the table. We can’t wait to discover what this semester has in store for us!

PR During a Crisis

Utilizing media to distribute information is critical during a crisis. As a PR agency, if we’ve learned anything during the recent COVID-19 pandemic, it is that communities rely on receiving information and important updates from the media outlets they trust. Similar to how consumers rely on trustworthy news, it is crucial to share your company news and updates to ultimately benefit your brand during this unique time. Below are a few reasons why PR is beneficial for your company during a crisis.

  1. You are able to position yourself as a thought leader – When unfortunate circumstances occur in business, it may be important for you to right the wrong, or set the record straight to inform the community at large with honesty and transparency.  Sharing your story with the local media allows you to become the primary source of information that an audience receives. It can also be very beneficial to leverage your company’s profile through positive news, during a negative time. If you are able to give back to the community or donate your services after a crisis, it helps provide a renewed sense of reassurance in your brand and your ability to lead. This positions your company as a leader on the topic at hand, and therefore positions you for success in the future.
  1. You are able to control your message – By crafting and distributing a statement, providing an interview to the local media, or writing an Op-ed in your major daily, you are able to control your message. By serving as the official source of the information being shared publicly, you essentially eliminate or de-bunk any false information that may be circulating within the market. Communities like to hear directly from the source of the crisis and using the media to share your information directly is the most effective way to set you on a path towards normalcy once the dust has settled, post crisis.
  1. You are able to build trust among your community, peers, partners, etc. – By utilizing the media to share important information that the community would find beneficial, you are able to build trust. Whether it is trust that may have been lost due to the recent crisis, or the community simply needs reassurance, sharing your information on a platform like the local 5 o’clock news or in the community’s primary business publication, allows you to establish your footing and regain trust. Depending on the severity of the crisis, this can be very beneficial for the short term, as well as the future moving forward. Once the information is published, you are also able to utilize that coverage as your own to re-post, share and distribute across your own channels so that your database or followers are hearing the important information through another medium.
