Your media profile: A key business tool
Good media coverage is critical to almost all public relations campaigns. As the influence of the media continues to grow, coverage is the number one way for most organizations to reach the people who are essential to their success.
In addition to helping clients develop their public relations strategies, Argyle Communications has a comprehensive program that equips spokespeople with the techniques and tools to define their messages and deliver them in media interviews — with clarity, consistency and impact.
We believe that each interview is a selling opportunity for your products, services or ideas. We help you excel in interviews, rather than simply treating them as a necessary evil. Using a mixture of instruction and realistic, interactive simulations, Argyle’s media training workshop will show you:
- The way the media work — using real-life examples of broadcast and print media coverage
- The keys to effective media messages — what works and what doesn’t
- The most common types of questions, and how to deal with them
- The pitfalls you must know and avoid
- What to do when a reporter calls
- How to improve your personal performance in any media situation — whether you’re a beginner or an interview veteran
