Communications & Marketing Strategies

How to communicate with your audiences…

Develop Your Message (Elevator Speech) Newsworthy and Noteworthy • What is the issue? • Why is it important? • What are you doing about it?

• How will this help? • Personal stories? • Success stories? Discuss/practice/ receive feedback from your colleagues and others whose opinion you trust or who have knowledge of the issue.

Create Compelling Materials • Basic fact sheet(s) • Press Advisory or Press Release upon a noteworthy development

Do Your Research • On the media who cover your issue or similar issues. • On community organizations that could endorse or otherwise play a role in your project. • On a specific community leader who has a connection to your issue (e.g., who has a family member or loved one who is facing an issue that relates to your work).

Media Opportunities - Targets • Local newspaper, local TV newscasts, public radio station (local and national), CNN • Pitch story ideas for special features of specific news programs (Out on the Porch, Consumers’ Rights, Person of the Week) • Letter to the Editor

• Op-Ed • Editorial Board Meeting

Community Opportunities - Targets Get someone popular in the community to help tell your story:

• Popular, well-liked figure in sports, music, TV newscaster, government • • • •

Nolan Ryan – famous baseball pitcher, Texan Hispanic musician for Spanish language media Mayor Governor or Governor’s wife

Make Contact • Media outreach – E-mail followed by call • With other identified constituents/community leaders

• Timely communications • Follow up

Ongoing Relationships • Acknowledge the media person or community group that met with you. • Send a complimentary note or e-mail after a story runs. • Always follow up with updated or new information. • Send them information that you think may interest them, even if it is not directly about your project/fellowship. • Offer to bring coffee by their office, meet for lunch.

General Guidelines for Media Interviews • Always tell the truth. • Never talk off the record. If you don’t want it in the story, don’t say it. • Focus on the points you want to make and then make them. You can answer an unrelated question very briefly, but “bridge” back to your key points.

• Never lose your cool – even in the face of hostile questions.

General Guidelines for Media Interviews • State the most important fact(s) first. Then explain, give context. • When appropriate, talk in personal terms – “I” – “we.”

• If you don’t know the answer to a question, it’s ok to say so. “I don’t have that information, but I can find out and get back to you.” Then be sure you do. • If you are asked about an irrelevant topic, you may say, “I’m not prepared to discuss that, what I can talk about is xxx.” • Don’t repeat negative words, even to deny them.

General Guidelines for Media Interviews • Never say “No comment.” If you can’t talk about something, say why not, if possible. • Never speculate. Never speak for anyone else – that includes explaining why they said what they did. • Make your responses relevant to the audience. • Answer in complete sentences. • Think in terms of 8-15 second sound bite (ink bites).

Perspectives from a Former Fellow

Applying what’s been discussed so far

to your day-to-day reality…

48 Laws of Power—Law 6: COURT ATTENTION AT ALL COST Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious than the bland and timid masses. –Robert Greene

Means to Garner Attention • Media – New Media – Social Media • • • •

Facebook Twitter Avvo LinkedIn

– Traditional Media • Radio • Newspapers

• Person-to-Person Relationships

Know Your Environment from the Inside Out – Connection Most people think first of what they want to express or make, then find the audience for their idea. You must work the opposite angle, thinking first of the public. You need to keep your focus on their changing needs, the trends that are washing through them. Beginning with their demand, you create the appropriate supply. Do not be afraid of people’s criticisms—without such feedback your work will be too personal and delusional. You must maintain as close a relationship to your environment as possible, getting an inside “feel” for what is happening around you. Never lose touch with your base. – 50 Cent & Robert Greene, The 50th Law

The Human Element: Creating Public Narratives Public narrative is a leadership art composed of three elements: 1. a story of self, (my values, my experience); 2. a story of us, (our shared values, our shared experience); and

3. a story of now (articulating the present as a moment of challenge, choice and hope). - as developed by Marshall Ganz PhD
