We develop a solid communications plan that includes messaging, positioning, and strategy for the campaign to come. That’s one of the reason we are known for achieving the objective – because we plan it out and then execute flawlessly. Our plans may include the right kind of integrated campaign, which may include issues advertising, media planning, community outreach, internal communications (to your staff or inside the company), crisis planning, and much more. In addition, while doing public relations in New Mexico, having a plan is essential to getting things done. Each plan has a thorough tactics plan, the “to-do” list, so that we stick to an approved plan of deliverables, or things to get done for you, the client. The communications plan is a way to lay out the entire campaign ahead of us, to allow for client input, and ultimately a way to see how the whole thing fits together.
First, everyone has a crisis eventually, and it’s best to plan for it. When it comes, it’s best to have a seasoned group of crisis managers around to help you through it. We like to say that our clients come out of a crisis stronger than when they went in, and that’s because we know the right way to reassure the public when doing public relations in New Mexico. There are two types of crisis situations, one that’s long term, like turning around your reputation; and two, a short term crisis like a scandal, a DUI, criminal activity, or embezzlement. In both cases, our crisis managers know what to do to get you through, with a steady hand and strong constitutions. Our clients approve our plan and then watch us take care of the crisis in the most effective way, and when it’s over, they sometimes marvel that their company or organization came out better, even after a crisis! Public relations in New Mexico requires a strong knowledge of crisis planning and execution, and Carroll Strategies comes through.
