Effective high tech PR is still all about making connections. Key targets include customers and potential customers; reporters; influential bloggers; industry and investment analysts; government officials, venture capitalists, among others. In other words, people who can help advance your company’s story through immediate action.
We live in a mobile world – in essence, a world of moving targets. However, while on the move, those targets are never out of touch, thanks in large part to smart phones, tablet computers, etc. However, they still read newspapers, magazines and watch television. So when considering undertaking a high tech PR campaign, you need to consider a retaining a firm that knows how to connect your company with these audiences through a combination of traditional high tech PR and Web-based approaches. Whether it’s contacting a journalist via Facebook, harnessing client resources to comment on blogs, or building content for one-off stories, your high tech PR program should strive for ongoing engagement.
Hi tech companies pride themselves on being on the cutting edge. They offer products and services that are groundbreaking and game changing. With competition in every hi tech sector fierce, all hi tech companies have the need to employ a consistent high tech PR strategy.
Whether your high tech PR niche is aerospace, biotech, energy, information technology, instrumentation, nanotechnology, nuclear physics, optoelectronics, robotics, telecommunications or electrical engineering, your high tech PR team should own that media space – both traditional and new media.
Proactive High Tech PR should create news, not just get it reported. High tech PR should place breaking news stories covering the launch of a new service offering, improved technology or social media application. High tech PR efforts should also extend to corporate news, such as staffing announcements, product availability and profitability reports.
Generating consistent and positive…
