Why Bluewood Media Training?
There are many positive reasons for building media relationships; not least is the fact that coverage in the news is likely to be far cheaper than other marketing methods. Also; people are now faced with so much advertising that they increasingly look to third-party reviews and commentary to support their buying decisions.
However, we don’t suggest that organisations leap straight into media relations without careful planning, preparation and media training. Using industry advisors and public relations staff to help manage the process is a very good idea, but so is making sure you have spokespeople who can handle media interviews when you get the opportunity.
Just assuming your strong CEO, or an enthusiastic head of marketing, can handle the press interactions is a big gamble and is unlikely to pay-off unless you provide them with the skills to do the job – this is where our media training comes in.
Our media training experts tailor every single course, because one size rarely fits all. We teach spokespeople how the media operates, the key areas to prepare and how to manage the interview process.
There’s some theory in our courses but the majority of the session is about practice – putting people through their paces in a testing, but safe, environment, so they can trial different methods to find what works best for them. It’s only by going through our type of training that you can be truly ready to make the most of your media relations.
