Media Relations

Piranha Solutions are a digital marketing and media advertising agency in Preston, Manchester, Blackpool and Warrington

According to resources such as Wikipedia, Media relations is the term that refers to the relationship that a company, agency or an organisation nurtures with journalists and editorial executives, whilst the term public relations refer to the relationship that extends beyond the media channel to the general public and It is possible for communication between the media and the organisation to be initiated by either side at any time.

Media targets and data

At Piranha we have built up our own trusted list of editorial contacts within many consumer, trade and local media sectors including radio and TV. We have particularly strong relationships with Lancashire’s business editors and lifestyle publications as well as many nationwide industrial, manufacturing, facility management and processing publications and on-line resources.

Supplementing our own media contacts lists, we also subscribe to several on-line resources enabling us to target and distribute news and PR articles to any chosen market sector, not only in the UK, but globally. Please contact us if you would like to know more about the media opportunities in your sector or any vertical market you would like to target, and we can provide core information and audience opportunities and figures.

Consumer media relations

We segment our consumer media contacts by both consumer type and also by interest which means we work closely with editors who work in the same consumer field such as food, or who are targeting similar types of consumers such as single professionals or affluent retired couples.  This ensures the article or press release we distribute is relevant both to the editorial team and also the reader of the publication, website or blog maximising the chances of being considered for publication.

Trade media relations

Our trade media relations are built around industry sectors and also SIC codes so we can target exactly the business sectors your customers will read. This includes social channels, blogs, websites as well as printed journals and magazines. In addition to close relationships with the editors, we also had a good relationship with the media sales departments as often a little ad spend can greatly increase our media opportunities as the two are linked a little more that the national and consumer press

Online channels

More online only media channels are springing up all the time and we have a list of contacts at these non-traditional media outlets. Often there is an additional advantage of submitting content successfully to online channels which is the building of a high-quality link profile to assist with Search Engine Optimisation and improvements in domain authority. Our media teams work closely with the digital marketing team here at Piranha Digital to make sure we maximise the link build opportunities of working with online media platforms.

PR verses Article Content

There is a clear distinction between the type of information media channels require, even more so when we look at purely digital channels. There is a clear distinction between those sites that require news and PR stores and those that require quality articles to include on their site. At Piranha, we have identified what type of content our contacts require and can tailor the type of information to the right channel increasing the likelihood of publication.
