What We DO
In a digital world where there seems to be more fake than real, consumers are more skeptical than ever. Connecting with your audience isn’t only about algorithms and bots.
Want to break through the noise? At Buzz Monkeys, we believe in the power of P2P (people to people). Meaningful and memorable storytelling that mixes a touch of the familiar with a dose of novelty can help you stand out from the crowd.
Establishing an effective content strategy can position your business as a thought leader and, indirectly, promote your products and services. Doing so requires understanding your audiences’ needs and interests, and, most importantly, publishing regular, high quality content. Readers demand more than product pitches, superficial information or keyword-rich articles. We help you enhance your marketplace presence by creating and managing engaging content.
Buzz Monkeys has a proven ability to communicate strategy, culture, brand, and restructuring and change management initiatives that inform, engage and inspire all levels of an organization’s internal and external audiences and manage their messages across an ever-widening array of touch points.
Strategic communications with employees, customers and other key stakeholders is an important part of any successful deal. Our team of experts help lay the foundation for the changes a merger and acquisition will bring and help position the new company for success, improving customer satisfaction and employee productivity and engagement.
In our role as “keeper” of our clients’ brands, our goal is to ensure that we have collectively crystallized your WHY – your organization’s reason for existing and the heart of your brand – from the audience point of view – as well as WHAT you do and HOW you do it differently – into a concise, consistent brand platform on which all communications will be built, ensuring that the messages you deliver are in sync with consumer interactions at every touchpoint.
Press kits, news releases, national, regional and local media pitching, wire service distribution, press tours, online newsrooms, webinars, podcasts … we do it all to get your story in front of the right editors, reporters and anchors, and thus, the right audience.
We tap into the expertise of former journalists on our staff to offer half-day and full-day media training sessions. These include background on media practices, assistance with developing key messages, strategies for managing interviews, and role play of live interviews which are videotaped, played back and critiqued.
Employees are ambassadors for their employers. What they say about you creates an influential communications channel in the communities where you operate, and among customers and prospects. We develop messaging and strategies that keep employees informed – turning them into advocates not detractors.
When the pressure is on and the deadlines are tight, the tough get going. At Buzz Monkeys every client on our roster has tapped into our expertise on crisis communications. Our “Media Response Team” is on-call around the clock to respond to media on issues or potentially damaging situations. Our team has served as the national crisis call center for dozens of clients. We’ve also helped organizations facing long-term issues and challenges position their messages and deliver them appropriately to their most important audiences. Issues of food, public health and product safety are a specialty.
Some companies, due to their high visibility with consumers, can become lightning rods for public concerns on important community issues. Buzz Monkeys has helped numerous companies defend, promote or establish leadership positions regarding issues that impact people’s lives.
Every day, we work to align our clients with like-minded organizations to extend their contributions as good stewards of their community.
Whether working with foundations to promote giving on an annual basis or mobilizing quickly to respond to a national or international tragedy, we have helped clients work with hundreds of national charities and organizations. Our team has also managed the news and client messages to support corporate giving platforms.
From annual reports to websites to promotional materials, logos, videos and more, we work with clients to develop the most effective supporting materials that advance their communications goals and bring their brands to life. For any technology we don’t have in-house, we tap into a network of trusted vendor partners to deliver a final product of the highest quality — guaranteed.
Do you have a great website that nobody can find? We’ll tailor a digital solution to ensure you come out on top in search engine results. A combination of search engine optimization factors can impact your ranking, but we can help with a program that combines both paid and organic search tools that will optimize your site.
Behind every successful and influential thought leader is a dynamic public relations team diligently working to bring you new opportunities, develop story ideas and constantly pushing to bring relevant insights to the fore. Want to stand out in your field? Call us for help developing a program that can include bylined articles, blog posts, tweets and speaking opportunities that will position you as an expert resource.
Seconds count when your corporate reputation is on the line. We have proven strategies to help drive down negative news and less than ideal search results. Whether it is anonymous employees posting negative criticism, customers posting negative reviews, or news stories that are less than flattering, we can help you restore your online reputation.
