Our firm has three distinct specialties – financial services, professional services and healthcare. As a result, we speak many languages. We speak the language of lawyers, CPAs, strategy consultants, lending officers, portfolio managers, analysts, actuaries, financial planners, radiologists, pharmacists and facilities planners, among others. Importantly, we know how to translate these languages into the “sophisticated lay language” of the media.
Yes, in a digital world, communications strategies are increasingly “one to one” and “many to many,” more than the traditional “one to many.” Communications channels are new, but the practices are often not. So despite the channel – whether it’s a blog, a TV interview, a trade publication or an analyst meeting – there are really only two questions to answer. They are: what does our client know that is newsworthy? And what will the audience – whether it’s one person or a phalanx – find valuable?
So when we’re developing media strategies or marketing campaigns, we find it is imperative to speak our client’s language fluently, and to know how best to translate it for the listener. In that way, we save precious time for the client, and we maximize the interest level of the audience, and both are happy with the result.
