Howard Stirk Media (HSM) is a one of a kind PR:Media firm. As a public relations firm our expertise and relationships spans across all arenas. We have worked with clients in all areas, including politics, entertainment, sports, and business.
- HSM produces a multitude of recurring & diverse nationally syndicated programming; delivered via an array of platforms, including over-the-air, multi-channel video program distributors, and digital platforms.
- We own & operate the largest minority owned television broadcast group in the nation; this makes messaging and programming distribution seamless.
- We have over 30 years of experience in Public Relations, and as a client you can be sure we have forged the relationships necessary for you to have a successful media campaign, increase brand awareness, or deal with crisis.
Earned media is crucial to your reputation and it’s the center of every client program. Even as reporters and bloggers move daily, HS Media’s hard won reputation means those relationships travel and translate into consistent coverage.
Infographics. Videos. White Papers. Blog Posts. Case Studies. You name it, we deliver it – any content that supports PR and Marketing. From concept design to final execution, developed by account staff in concert with our internal Creative Team.
Crisis communications starts with planning. Our process guides clients from plan creation to real-time monitoring and issue escalation, through longer term issues management. Be it a B2B software hack, a SaaS outage or a B2C product recall, HS Media can navigate the storm.
The story is only as good as the messenger. It’s a journey from “marketing speak” to compelling interviews that the media trust. HS Media coaches your executives along the path, from phone interview basics to broadcast readiness, in small group and individual sessions.
With pay-for-play on the rise, the coveted earned speaking gig is of high value. HS Media’s clients have keynoted at White House events, moderated panels at NAB and appeared onstage at the CES Conference. We know the coordinators, the agendas and the messages that translate into stage time.
Defining your story. Being compelling. Being concise. Answering “why should you care about my company” starts with messaging. HS Media develops your voice for every audience (prospects, customers, employees, board members, the Street) and every platform (website, blog, social channels, media).
Thought leaders are created, not born. They have vision, real opinions and the guts to stand out. The most successful ones also have a PR team that sniffs out story ideas, creates opportunities for new insights and makes theoretical ideas come to life.
Media just doesn’t attend as many live events these days. HS Media times and positions your news to stand out, knows which reporters will “cover” events remotely, and seamlessly integrates social media strategies to get the most out of each event.
Launches shouldn’t be one-time events, rather the tent pole for much bigger campaigns. HS Media’s approach pulls in your initial audience via thought leadership, preconditions the market pre-launch, and extends the value and life of your launch over multiple quarters.
HS Media has a strong, deep network of more than 60 trusted, rock star agency partners within all key territories, spanning 40 different countries. Alongside our partners we are regularly executing cross-border campaigns for a third of our existing client base.
