In such a highly regulated environment that also invites scrutiny, how you market and advertise your financial services company matters. While you spend your time navigating daily considerations and growing customer expectations, a clear and actionable public relations strategy can help you gain and retain clients and get your name out there in the world.
This is where Axia Public Relations excels. Using cutting-edge technology, responsive communication and our deep knowledge of your industry, we can help you craft and implement a far-reaching brand strategy that will prepare you for what comes next.
When considering the best way to advertise what you do, it can be easy to fall into flashy or loud approaches, but the style and aggressiveness of your campaign can have a drastic effect on your overall results, so a strong understanding of your audience and differentiators is important. This instinct may be driven by the realization that traditional PR doesn’t work anymore.
For your business to succeed, you must either understand the traditional, digital, and inbound methods of attracting business, or select a qualified PR firm to do it for you. You need to advertise in proven places that will have the greatest impact for you, and with media being split into distinct ecosystems, a comprehensive plan must have a strategy for each realm.
You aren’t in business to stagnate, but to constantly and prudently grow your company’s reach. Advertising can take many different forms and be directed at different audiences, so taking a measured, quality approach to promoting your business is essential. We’ll help you communicate your message using the major crossroads of communication: news media, social media, and web media.
Also, PR is measurable, meaning you’ll be able to track which customers and sales come to you as a direct result of our efforts. At Axia Public Relations, we are among the industry leaders creating a cultural shift in public relations reporting, measurement, and evaluation best practices to effectively measure PR and PR’s ROI at your company or firm. You’ll never be left in the dark, wondering whether our efforts have paid off — we’ll tell you!
Here are some of the services we regularly provide our clients:
News media coverage: Earning positive news media coverage for your company, its products/services, leaders, opinions, ideas, and innovations can ultimately help build your brand and reputation by increasing visibility, trust, and loyalty among target industry contacts and consumers.
Crisis communications management: Every company faces a crisis at one point or another. Failing to implement a crisis communications plan that addresses the moment can have a significant effect on your company. If you handle a crisis correctly, you may be able to leverage it to build deeper trust with customers and the community.
Online review and reputation management: Taking a targeted approach to reviews is a practical way to help promote your business. With hundreds of review sites in existence, it’s important to take steps to reduce the chance of negative reviews while encouraging your customers to leave reviews on the websites that will generate the most business for your company. Axia PR offers a revolutionary review management platform to effectively and efficiently monitor, collect, and promote your online reviews.
Social media management: With the heightened polarization social media giants have become associated with, it can be a daunting task to spend an adequate amount of time promoting your business on such networks. However, since 74% of internet users have a social media account, not advertising there is a serious missed opportunity. You can benefit from a firm that knows how to avoid unnecessary squabbles and conflict, and instead focuses on increasing your brand value on social media.
Website design and development: Creating or revisiting and revising your website can have a huge impact on your company. Since other profiles and media accounts will likely link to your homepage, make sure the destination that potential customers reach when they visit your site is attractive, clear, and inviting; this is key to future success.
Inbound marketing: Inbound is a web marketing methodology that is education-based rather than interruption-based. Its focus is on creating and distributing valuable, relevant, and consistent content to attract and retain a clearly defined audience — and, ultimately, to drive profitable customer action.
These are just some of the services we offer our clients. Some of our other services include: spokesperson training, award entries, connecting with brand influencers, podcast appearances, booking speaking engagements, expert blogging, and more.
