Including Broadcast in a New Business Proposal
In our experience, getting coverage on television or radio is often the icing on the cake for a client. But when it comes to budgets it can be dismissed as an unaffordable “extra”. This workshop will highlight some of the many broadcast PR options available and how they can add fantastic value for money when used efficiently. We’ll discuss costs, case studies and how to maximise ROI. Options include radio days, TV and online sell-ins, PR video production, streaming, technical services and media training. Our examples will cover both large, multi-faceted campaigns as well  as contrasting single service case studies., and help account managers develop a strategy for including broadcast elements in a PR campaign.

PR Podcasts: The Basics
In our view podcasts are having something of an overdue renaissance. There have never been so many available,  the quality has arguably never been higher and the market has become much more commercialised. But with so much competition how do you make sure your podcast gets the attention it deserves? Our workshop will look at what makes a great podcast: content, optimum duration, sound effects and music. We’ll also give you an overview of how to get your podcast in the spotlight. 82%  of podcasts are downloaded from iTunes but there are things you can do to make your podcast stand out from the others.
