About Sterling Kilgore
Founded in 1995, Sterling Kilgore’s clients include companies in high-tech software, professional services, not-for-profit and manufacturing. Companies come to Sterling Kilgore for our ability to deliver on our motto: “We Make Companies Famous.” Whether you want to grow your company or are preparing to sell, the Sterling Kilgore team uses proven public relations strategies coupled with sound marketing initiatives, such as press releases, thought leadership, social media and targeted marketing to raise a company’s visibility in key verticals and bring attention to its successes and market differentiators.
Many impressive marketing successes have been public relations successes. Think of Starbucks, Google and Amazon. All these companies initially built highly successful brand awareness through publicity alone. A smart PR campaign identifies the influential publications, editors, analysts and industry influencers most likely to sway behavior with their focus on product, company or relevant issue in a specific industry.
At Sterling Kilgore, creating awareness is all about us creating that “buzz.” We love it because it is one of the most effective ways to get people in your target markets wanting what you have to offer. We are effective at it because we understand it is a discipline. Considering that, we have a proven method for carrying out public relations activities that cross industry boundaries. We are experts at obtaining the all-too-important third-party credibility endorsement from the media as well as influencers and your customers. It is invaluable for driving awareness and building equity in your brand. In addition to utilizing important third-party endorsements, our team also focuses on providing important PR strategies that include the creation and distribution of press releases, finding crucial speaking opportunities, and implementing exciting product placement opportunities that can help your business become known as a thought leader in its industry.
Social Media Marketing
With hundreds of millions of people using social media each day, businesses that aren’t engaging in social media at some level are missing out. Now more than ever before, companies are interacting with their customers online and the rapidity of their responses matter. Having an active presence on social media, gives your customers and prospects direct access to a valuable source of information that helps them make buying decisions.
Through consistent posting, influencer relations, customer engagement and identifying advocates and influencers, Sterling Kilgore’s social media marketing programs help to amplify company news, promote owned content, curate and share third-party content and create social campaigns or sponsored posts. It’s a strategy that ensures you’re getting the maximum value from your owned, earned and paid content through optimization and establishing an engagement baseline. We also help strategically build your community to be a curated group of individuals who align themselves with the goals and interests of your company. Then, we monitor your brand and measure your results to determine what is and what isn’t working.
Content Marketing Strategy
It’s important to build a marketing strategy that elevates your public relations and social media efforts with valuable content created to resonate with your audience.
