This process begins with our insights questionnaire. This thought-provoking questionnaire supports you in getting clear about your messaging, helps you to identify your target audience, and compels you to think more deeply and critically about your overall platform.
We’ve used this questionnaire for years to get the creative juices flowing. It will provide focus for your call with Wasabi Publicity’s Chief Creative Officer, Michelle Tennant Nicholson, considered by many to be a leading media trainer and messaging expert. In your 90-minute branding call, Michelle will guide you through a process of deep messaging work that’ll leave you clear about your gift to the world and will teach you how to message that gift so the media and the people you most want to serve are clear. Many people have commented that this process gives them new insight into their business direction and their brand as a whole.
Online Press Kit Writing
One of our senior writers will review the recording and transcription of your branding and messaging call, as well as any supporting materials (your website, books, etc.). Then, they’ll write your online press kit. You will receive a draft to review and your feedback will be incorporated to ensure your press kit reflects your commitment and communicates exactly what you want to the media. Your online press kit will consist of the following pages:
Welcome – a powerful whole-brand summary page that delivers essential information to the media while inviting them to engage further; includes a custom-designed banner consistent with your brand.
About – contains three professionally crafted versions of your bio for use across a variety of media platforms (full-length bio, broadcast bio, byline bio).
News & Story Ideas – used as the basis for outgoing pitches to the media; also serves as a place where media who are vetting you through your online press kit can easily grab story ideas for their needs.
Interview Questions – makes it easy for radio, podcast and television media to access questions you are ready to answer.
Media Coverage – showcases current and past media coverage to the media.
Contact – so the media can easily coordinate interviews.
Images – housing your high-resolution photos for media use.
One Pagers – a general summary of your online press kit is readily downloadable in two one-page versions: one for general media and one for radio / podcast purposes.
Hosting and Online PressKit 24/7 Technology (12 months): Your press kit will house all your press materials in such a way that the media has access to what they want, when they want it. It can also be updated by anyone within minutes.
