Making the Pitch

We tell stories.

The "Nice Ink!" section at the bottom of our e-news is just one place - along with our website and social media platforms - where we share those stories about our clients. Much of that coverage is the result of a skill that is highly prized at our firm - the ability to successfully pitch a story idea to a journalist or a blogger.

through the elements of a successful pitch, where we used 10,000 hamburgers and 1,200 meat loaves to help get one of our clients' stories told to the people who need to hear it.


#TBT: What To Do with The Good Story

The good story following the successful pit c h re ally only raises the question "What's Next?" Our answer: amplify the coverage on all available platforms to make sure as many people as possible see it, and hear the client's message.     
A good example of this approach is last year's story about our client the Quonset Business Park in The New York Times.  In this #TBT post,  take a look at this blog entry to see all the different ways that we make the most of a story in order to reach as many people as possible.
