media relations

When it comes to news, the world is a village and stories travel like proverbial wildfire. Deadlines are instant and every business needs to respond quickly to ensure they protect their hard-fought reputation.

With many at Maxim being former journalists, we instinctively understand how the media works, the pressures reporters are under and how to build positive relations.

Maxim knows what makes news, the style and language that hits the spot, and has long-established relations with journalists based on trust and delivery. These are the fundamentals of strong media relations success.

Understanding both the press and a business’ corporate ambitions enables Maxim to set its editorial strategy. Proactively seeking out opportunities, we build profile and enhance our clients’ credentials.

With social media now very much a part of the news machine, Maxim is increasingly being called upon to monitor and support our clients’ online profile. Consistency of message and reaching the people who matter – influencers, customers, employees and suppliers – is vital.

Impartial editorial reinforces an organisation’s reputation. Our PR work is communication with a purpose.

Media relations goes social

Most journalists now use social media, particularly Facebook and Twitter, as a source of stories so if you don’t have a presence on at least one platform, how can they discover your organisation?

Perhaps you feel your industry isn’t suited to social media or that you have nothing to say? The chances are that you do have a story to tell but you may need help identifying what it is and how best to convey it using words, pictures and video.

Get in touch for advice on your social media strategy.
