Week 1 – Get Your Business PR Ready

“We’ve become a brand that people that people now know about! Before, we were just a best kept secret.”

“This program offers a creative and productive way to help entrepreneurs develop a business plan that is meaningful and connected to your full life.”

—Diane Rennie, CPCC, APR

Week 2 – Cultivate Your Brand & Showcase Your Business Values

“I’ve known Susan as both a PR Strategist and a Business Coach, and she excels at both roles. This gives her a unique ability to both solve complex issues, and allay the stress of decision making around those issues. With an uncanny ability to always ask the right questions and provide clear simple answers, Susan is a wonderful resource who can provide insight and creativity wherever it is needed. Beyond a typical advisor, Susan is more like an honest friend who really understands business.”

–Jacqueline Drew, CEO & President of Tenato Strategy Inc.

What do you believe in? What do you want to be known for? Thought leadership and having an opinion is not the next big thing, it’s the thing – right now. A key strategy that small businesses can use in building the public reputation of their business is to align themselves with a way of thought, showcase their values and be known for who they are just as much, if not more, than for what you do. It’s how you’ll differentiate yourself in a crowded marketplace of coaches, speakers, authors and many other small business competitors. Why will people want to listen to YOU?

During Week 2, we’ll cover:

  • What is your Brand?
  • What do you stand for?
  • What do you believe in?
  • What are the values of you and your business?
  • Know the benefits of augmenting your small business brand by aligning yourself with more established and recognizable brands
  • Showcase your values and your business through Effective Public Relations
  • Why are your company’s values important?

Week 3 – Make Your Own News

“We hired Susan Elford to strategize and execute a multi-platform pilot campaign in Calgary for Essilor Canada. The project needed local PR expertise. Two former colleagues referred me to Susan. Susan is extremely professional in the planning and strategic thinking stage and is very generous of her time and counsel. I would definitely hire Susan Elford again. Susan’s local market insights were so valuable for a global company such as Essilor.”
–Suzanne Houle, Tonik Group Image

Now that you’re PR ready – how do you make your own news? During Week 3, we’ll cover:

    • How to create your own news
    • How to give your business something newsworthy to report on
    • How to create your own news release
