B2B PR

For some, B2B public relations is all about media coverage, but at Arketi we take a longer-term view: PR is about building a trusted, honest relationship with the audiences who are key to your organization’s advancement.

That’s not to say that coverage doesn’t count, or that months go by before you see results. You need results: clips to show the CEO, leads to feed the sales team. We deliver all of that, while helping you keep the bigger picture in mind.

As an award-winning B2B PR agency, we start every PR program with research so we can build a campaign that establishes your credentials, generates recognition, and grows the relationships that matter. At the same time, we agree on metrics that will let us – and you – determine how well our efforts are hitting home with your industry and delivering business value to your organization.

Depending on the plan, our PR tactics and execution may take many forms – developing a reputation as an industry thought leader, leveraging innovative channels to engage the market, and earning recognition for being a good corporate citizen. To make this happen, we draw on a broad set of tools:

Building buzz

Atlanta-based Cbeyond was preparing to open a branch in Detroit, a city in which the provider of integrated telephone and Internet services for small businesses had relatively low brand awareness.

“We needed to develop awareness quickly,” said Stein Soelberg, Cbeyond’s director of marketing communications. Because one-third of Cbeyond’s customers are acquired through references, there were two immediate needs: securing channel partners and gaining brand recognition among client prospects in Detroit.

NCR Small Business: Small business, big buzz

Small businesses often face challenges in effectively managing technology – from lacking the necessary expertise to simply not having the time to handle IT issues and upgrades.

Technology providers that sell to small businesses face their own challenges, too – how to generate media buzz in a competitive field, how to establish thought leadership, and how to build market share.

NCR Small Business turned to Arketi Group to help generate awareness in a crowded market and draw more prospects into the funnel. 

Survey says…
Sprint

The results of the 32-question survey were packaged into an easy-to-read "Fast Facts" sheet that received extensive media coverage nationwide.

A small agency might seem an unusual choice for a national brand. But when wireless provider Sprint wanted to further its thought leadership position, it was clear that meant thinking beyond “business as usual.” 

Enter Arketi, with the idea of harnessing National Cellphone Courtesy Month (July, who knew?) to stake out a thought leadership position.

  • Generate coverage for your company in the publications and websites that your target audience reads

We follow PR best practices first by incorporating and syncing our efforts with your current marketing campaigns and then by identifying and segmenting a key target audience. To really resonate, we then craft content designed for a person, not people, so we can drive stories and messages that impact on a personal level.

An average B2B PR firm may call that a successful campaign, but not us. Our transparent, ongoing measurements and reporting guides our next PR push as we analyze traffic patterns and conversion metrics on your website.

A true public relations agency knows that media placements are great, but completing business objectives driving revenue is better. That’s what we’re all about at Arketi.
