A speaker one sheet is in essence the sales sheet of a speaker. This is also a critical component of creating an inbound magnet for thought leadership. Several aspects need to be considered in order for a speaker one sheet to be in alignment with your brand, your lead generation strategy and also serve as an inbound magnet.
A popular brand building tactic for businesses of all sizes is thought leadership. By sharing your company's knowledge and point of view with the market, you can organically attract a qualified audience (sounds like Inbound Marketing don't you think?)
One of the more prominent thought leadership tactics is public speaking, which is also a great lead generation tool if set up with inbound marketing in mind. Here are the steps you will need to implement public speaking thought leadership into your company's lead generation strategy.
As we've shared previously, PR can also be used as an inbound marketing tactic. However, to earn the trust of journalist, you need to create releases that matter and will catch their attention. A key component is making sure your release includes the elements they'll expect while also thinking about inbound aspects that will also pull journalist and prospects to your site.
Now that we’ve established why you need a press kit on your company’s website, we want to share HOW you can build it.
The integral part of a traditional public relations campaign is the media. Yes, you can utilize social and digital aspects in a PR campaign. However, if your goal is to garner earned media you’ll need to make sure media professionals are the target persona in the campaign’s plan. But how do you make your company attractive to those media professionals?
Media professionals have been through the wringer the past few generations with HUGE, life-altering changes to how they do business and attempt to make a profit. In this new digital age, it is more important than ever for marketers to find that competitive edge to make our business stand out amongst the rest. And we need to do that with media as well as with consumers. This means we need to enlist a multi-channel integrated marketing plan that includes several inbound marketing and public relations initiatives in order to meet marketing and lead generation goals and a press kit, though it sounds traditional, can be a highly beneficial part of that plan. Let’s talk about why.
Now that we've covered what public relations is and that is can help your business, let's dig a little deeper on HOW it helps and what that means for your bottom line.
Just a quick overview for those of you who may have missed the last PR blog post:
Public Relations, sometimes called PR, is earned media that utilizes distribution of a press release to the media in hopes that a story or article or news segment is published and will increase brand awareness and build credibility in the buyers journey. This is sometimes called earned media.
I know what you are thinking -- public relations, really? Isn't that an old school tactic that is only used for damage control these days? No, my friend, no it is not.
Inbound marketing and public relations are birds of a feather (and yes they should flock together). Many business people put these in the same marketing category of initiatives they don't understand. However, when you look at the big picture, long-term effects that these two marketing initiatives can have on your business, you'll see how critical they are for business success.
