Reactive PR

Have you seen your competitors or peers getting in the press and think ‘that should’ve been me?’ Do you wonder how they’re doing it, being quoted as an expert here there and everywhere?

If you appreciate the power of PR, but don’t have time to source opportunities yourself, let us keep our eyes out for you.

Let us tap you into opportunities that come from journalists needing fast turnaround support, with information, advice, quotes, case studies, products to feature – we get these presented to us daily, and we then pass them over to you.

Opportunities that come are usually things like being included in a wider article offering your expert opinion on a given subject, your story as a case study, featured guest blog opportunities, radio interviews, TV appearances…that kind of thing.

Clients have been featured in Cosmo, The Guardian, Huff Post, Thrive Global, Forbes, The Telegraph, The Metro, Entrepreneur & Investor, to name just a few

Register for our ‘On the Lookout’ PR service, and we’ll make sure you’re considered for any relevant PR opportunities coming from your industry.

We will also initially introduce your company to relevant journalists, to get you on their radar, then carry out media relations support, to keep track of opportunities.

Each relevant opportunity will be presented to you when it arises, and if required we can then compile features, offer quotes, and arrange interviews.

Youll come out with:

  • Increased visibility and credibility – An increased media profile which will provide mass audience exposure of your brand along with ‘trust tags’, such as ‘As Seen in The Telegraph’ that you can milk across your marketing
  • Strong relationships with national press who come to rely on you for content
  • An understanding of how PR works ‘behind the scenes’

“This service from Chocolate PR opened doors for me in many ways, very quickly. It got me into The Guardian, Cosmo and Women’s Health all within the first month of working with them – providing me with national media logos to use on my marketing, which in turn led to new business opportunities. I’m really grateful that they have created such a service to make national PR a real option for small business”.

What does this cost?

Budget: £650 + VAT and you get all this:-

  • Our proven ‘What’s Your Story’ PR Module, written from a journalistic perspective, to help you hone your media friendly angles
  • A 121 zoom call with a Chocolate PR team member to help you NAIL your PR-able angles and ensure we have dug deep enough to find several PR angles we can use to generate you coverage
  • The creation of a professional media bio for use when responding to journalists requests, to position you as an expert (can also be used, and often is, for wider marketing messaging across your website, social channels, or for award entries)

(The above RRP is £497 but it comes as part of this package)

  • Us connecting you to national media opportunities, live as they come in to us (ALL opportunities sourced in month 1 are within this fee – no additional charges are made)
  • An initial introduction of your company to an agreed top 5 list of media
  • Access to media opportunities via our ‘On the Lookout’ PR service for 6 months – you being tapped into our media network and us being your eyes and ears for PR opportunities

In month 1 we can also include writing of a press release, as a more detailed form of introduction if you have something specific to push: £150.

Subsequent fees: We continue to offer you PR opportunities for 6 months – but after month 1 there is a fee attached per piece of coverage achieved in subsequent months. You are in control of this. You can say yes or no to opportunities we present and you only get charged if the publication prints your comment/content.

So to be clear, from month 2 onwards we charge a fee per piece of coverage – so you only pay if you are chosen to be featured, providing you with a no risk PR approach. We will check with you in advance if you wish to be put forward for each opportunity, present you to the media, then the fee comes if your story/comment/content is featured.

£100 – £250 charged per article published (includes organising opportunity, obtaining quotes, providing information to journalist, writing articles)

Clients have achieved coverage in:-

THE GUARDIAN; NEW WOMAN; THE TIMES; COSMO; C4; MSN; BBC; THE TELEGRAPH; WEDDING IDEAS; FORBES;  & many many more

*Please note that this service is not suitable for all types of business – working with us on this basis involves a short application process so we can determine if it would work for you.

“I LOVE this service. Just a couple of weeks after first working with the team in this way I was in the national press – just little old me running my business from home in The Telegraph, it was insane. Now I’m regularly called upon by media for expert comment and it’s helped my business boom massively. I support female entrepreneurs globally through success coaching and them seeing me quoted in national press provides the visibility and credibility to help me stand out in my market”.

I only set up my business this year, and opened my shop just 2 months ago but I have already secured a feature in a women’s magazine, telling my story and promoting my services. I find this truly incredible!
