Got a Budget: get the Power of Publicity

Published by EOTM Press Room on May 7th, 2011 - in Public Relations, Publicity

No matter what type of business you’re in, you can’t beat the power of publicity for drawing attention to all that you have to offer.  Whether you’re selling green tea, music or looking for more acting gigs, your exceptional products or services won’t matter if your target market doesn’t know about you.  Simply put, it’s your opportunity to put a friendly face on your business/service and acquaint the marketplace with who you are and what you do.

The nightly news and daily newspapers are still here. But, they are evolving too. We understand that a media outlet has more than one avenue. Your customers can still find you by tuning in, or turning a page.

However, the added dimension of social media means they can also receive their news via tweet, RSS feed, a post or blog. Traditional PR channels still exist and we work with them every day. But the power of PR lies in understanding that more than one publicity opportunity resides within each outlet.

EOTM Public Relations is a innovative and aggressive PR firm that delivers results. Regardless of your industry, we understand that you need to have your story told by the media in order to build awareness… and more importantly… drive sales. Let us help!

It seems that more and more, we are turning to Twitter for the latest news and events around the world.  Even public safety officials are using Twitter to stay on top of the latest developments. We know that the public, first responders and journalists are using Twitter to learn about trends and breaking news. As of late, there has been a spike in media and pr professionals utilizing twitter to their advantage and EOTM PR is one of them.

“One way to stay on top of breaking news related to your clients is to set up searches on Twitter for general topic areas related to your client’s work.  For example, set up a search for “booking actors” and “actors” in addition to your client’s name if their work is in the entertainment field. While it may not catch all of the latest news for booking actors, you may see a few tweets relating to an upcoming casting that you can start to follow”, Carla Barnes, Senior Publicist for EOTM said in an recent interview.

Right now there is no better source for breaking news than Twitter, and EOTM PR professionals are using this to their advantage whenever possible. “You should keep your tools for monitoring Twitter open all day and check it regularly because you never know when the perfect opportunity for your client will come up”, Barnes said.

What has your Publicist tweeted for you lately?

There’s no question that Twitter is the new playground for media relations. It’s a new frontier, that when managed professionally, can serve as a powerful platform and one of the best resources for getting a message out to the masses.

Does Negative Publicity Help or Hurt your Business?

Published by EOTM Press Room on January 26th, 2011 - in Public Relations, Publicity, Uncategorized

By: Carla B





A couple days ago I asked this very question on my facebook page, “Does negative publicity help or hurt your business?”

In my humble opinion, I do believe negative publicity helps a business. Lots of movie stars seems to thrive on negative publicity. Several others have intentionally orchestrated negativity publicity to get into the limelight although many won’t admit it.

But there’s one word of caution here, if your business has a lousy product that no one wants or the business uses unethical means and abuses the customer’s trust then no amount of publicity positive or negative will help.

Why does negative publicity work?

I hate to say this but as a society, people love to see people fight, love to see a super star fall apart whether it’s a 50 cent, Michael Jackson, Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears. Our society gets its thrills from seeing successful people fall apart. Donald Trump came into the public eye when he was close to a $ 10 billion bankruptcy and in the middle of a dirty divorce. When the Gap unveiled a new logo last year, the reaction was swift, intense and very, very negative. In fact, some people detested the look so much it actually inspired them: somebody set up a Twitter account (@GapLogo) that purported to speak in the unpopular design’s voice, and someone else built a site called that made it easy to convert any short text into an imitation of the brand’s new style. The Gap tried to pivot off the negative buzz by asking the online hate mob for advice, in a sort of “crowd sourcing” gimmick, but that didn’t go over well, either. In just four days, the company capitulated and announced that it would not change its logo after all.

Britney Spears stays in the limelight for all the wrong reasons and who can forget the late great Michael Jackson from court cases to financial troubles.

I am not saying they are intentionally orchestrating negative publicity, but the point I am making is negative publicity is giving them media attention and they are getting visibility for themselves.  How they use this visibility is an entirely different ball game altogether.

Better that people are talking about your brand than not…just my two cents.
