PUBLIC RELATIONS

Harness the power of a new era of influencers and digital technology — one that extends beyond just the mainstream media as the arbiters of reach. Build credibility with differentiated messaging and content placements that multiply your brand impact to drive sales. At Merritt Group, Digital PR is the confluence of traditional public relations strategy, SEO, content marketing, and social media. 

Digital PR Solutions

Messaging and Positioning

A core competency backed by decades of experience, we help our clients cut through a noisy market with crisp, fresh messaging and differentiated company positioning that informs traditional and digital marketing and sales.

Media and Analyst Relations

With our exclusive focus on technology across our clients’ key markets, we’ve built lasting relationships with the traditional and digital influencers that matter most, both in the press and at the leading analyst firms. We get your message heard by the right people.

Thought Leadership

There is no shortage of thought leaders today, but the ones that stand out do so with human stories told in an authentic, meaningful and impactful way. We use market, audience and competitive research — combined with solid creative — to build unique thought leadership messages for our clients.

Media Training and Message Deployment

Even the best stories fall flat when they’re not delivered in a compelling way through media that reach target audiences. We draw on years of broadcast and public speaking experience to train executives, subject-matter experts, marketers and salespeople to engage with their audiences convincingly and confidently.

Content and Social Media

Our writers ensure great content the first time, including bylines, press releases, blogs, eBooks, video and webinar scripts and more. At the same time, we help our clients engage followers and build communities on social media through visual and differentiated content on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and more.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

In this age of Digital PR, optimized search has become a powerful tool that should be woven into the fabric of your traditional PR strategies and tactics. Digital PR can uplevel search ranking through effective media placements and mentions and by leveraging backlinks on high-authority websites. Successful Digital PR campaigns harness a combination of paid, earned and owned media and content across targeted websites, social media channels and influencers that matter.

Event Management and Promotion

From content and creative to media coverage and lead capture, we help our clients maximize ROI from virtual, hybrid and in-person events. Our teams have developed keynote presentations for large-scale industry events, driven high-profile media interviews and booth traffic and managed the full range of partnerships and logistics for custom client events.
