Feature articles are a great way of conveying an in-depth process or service, delivering industry views or expanding on a new product or development and will on completion typically comprise one or two full pages of printed or equivalent online editorial.
This level of media exposure is highly cost effective and a successful way of getting across a message in a highly competitive or niche market place and is often a rich source of new sales leads. In fact Allott and Associates is so confident that it even gives a publicity guarantee.A lot of the features now written by Allott and Associates are used for multi-platform digital distribution. This means that the feature that was published last week can be used as a feed for Twitter, highlighted on Facebook and used as content for the next e-newsletter.
Case studies are an ideal way of informing potential customers about the capabilities and successes of your business. When printed and posted on-line, a case study could be read by thousands or even millions of interested readers. This level of exposure through a single case study will not only create confidence but should also generate new work for your company.
Typical case studies can include highlighting recent installations or contract successes, demonstrating a particular skill set or relationship with a well known firm.
Allott and Associates takes ownership of the entire interview and drafting process. After interviewing you, we’ll progress to interviewing your customer and will obviously encourage them to say nice things. After your approval Allott and Associates will chase to get your customer’s approval. Only after all parties are satisfied and have signed off the case study will it be circulated. As part of the process Allott and Associates can arrange on-site photography and if applicable supporting YouTube filming.
A customer-endorsed case study sends out a very powerful marketing message and can also be included in future corporate literature including e-newsletters, social media, website content and as online blogging material. Unlike an advert the content from a case study can often be used for many years to come.
In fact Allott and Associates is so confident of subsequently getting your case study great media coverage that we’ll even include a publicity guarantee.
