Start time: 11 am

Duration: 45 minutes

There’s only one news story at the moment, right? And we certainly don’t need to tell you what it is. 

PRs and marketers face a real challenge at the moment. How do you continue your efforts to get positive coverage for your brand, without seeming tone deaf to the state of the world right now? What kind of content can you send journalists at this time? Do you put your PR activity on hold altogether? 

Prolific North has teamed up with JBH to address these challenges in a short, hands-on webinar. It will give anyone in PR the opportunity to share concerns, discuss ideas and get an insight into how leading PRs are adapting their strategy. 

The webinar will be led by JBH Co-Founder, Jane Hunt and Digital PR Director, Rebecca Moss, who have worked with some huge national brands including Gousto, Missy Empire, Betway, Tails.com. Join us to get informed and inspired, and discover there are ways you can reframe your strategy to generate positive coverage, with sensitivity and empathy to current events.

As an agency, JBH has seen client success in the current climate already. It’s meant reviewing all campaigns - pausing some, tweaking plenty of angles as the timing is wrong, and re-starting old campaigns. But via that process, clients have been able to generate positive PR coverage relevant to COVID-19. There are still many PR opportunities to be had, and journalists are crying out for content right now - that includes light-hearted content, that isn’t always related to the pandemic!

What's covered?

We'll cover:

  • The impact COVID-19 is having on the press and how PRs can respond
  • What kind of content and stories journalists are looking for right now
  • Examples of brands gaining coverage and how NOT to do it
  • The importance of being creative and resourceful
  • How to position your content to be sensitive to the situation

Discussion

Towards the end of the webinar, JBH will answer any questions, giving you the opportunity to chat about your concerns and discuss ideas and solutions. We don’t claim to have all the answers, but sometimes you just need another pair of ears to listen and offer any advice. And if you’re #WFH like us, you may just want a chat with a fellow human.
