Public Relations

Cutting through industry noise to get your voice heard

Your market is competitive, and it can be tough to gain share of voice if you don’t have a comprehensive public relations strategy in place. At Golden Spiral, we believe PR is most successful when it’s tightly integrated with your overall marketing efforts. That’s why we don’t just send out a press release and hope for coverage. We connect every PR opportunity to SEO, content marketing, social media, and lead generation campaigns for maximum impact.

Marketing is what you say about your company. Public relations is what you want others to say about your company and its reputation. Golden Spiral has a deep understanding of this distinction. They consistently deliver timely, strategic, and effective public relations to increase our share of voice in the market and enhance our reputation as a leader in software development for the ASC industry.

Analyst & Influencer Relations

Yours can’t be the only voice talking about your company and offerings; you need a third party to share your story to gain credibility in your market. Golden Spiral helps you garner relationships with reputable analysts and influencers in your space who can provide unbiased validation of your company’s value. Whether you want to be included in an annual industry report or featured on a prominent LinkedIn influencer group, we identify compelling angles and data, and reach out to the appropriate sources on your behalf.

Speaking & Awards Programs

Landing a presenter role for a company executive at a top industry conference or getting recognized for your company’s achievements tells your market that you’ve got an edge on your competition. The Golden Spiral team develops a speaking and awards calendar, outlining potential opportunities and submission requirements. We then draft and submit applications, and provide presentation support for successful submissions.

Measurement & Reporting

The only way to know if your PR efforts are working is to establish and track success metrics. These metrics will depend on the goals and KPIs you determine at the onset of a campaign. We monitor and report on the volume of earned media coverage, as well as the type of coverage you receive, whether via press releases, interview opportunities, or bylined articles. We also track your brand’s overall sentiment and share of voice in comparison to your top competitors. And, we report on backlinks we secure through offsite SEO in support of your overarching PR strategy.
