COMMUNICATIONS AUDIT MODULE
ARE YOU PR READY?
This module will assess the strength and impact of your current communications tools. It will also identify any gaps and whether there are opportunities to repurpose existing assets.
With over twenty years’ experience pitching brands to globally renowned editors, the FF&M team will review all your existing tools and recommend ways to enhance them before you begin your PR planning and pitching. This will not only save you budget and time but ultimately save your targeted editors from a bad pitch.
The COMMUNICATIONS AUDIT will also ensure that you are in a strong position to secure the right external PR representation, for the right retainer, should you need additional communications support. It will support any paid-owned-earned strategies and wider marketing campaigns as well.
