One of the leading PR agencies in Stuttgart

From PR agency to content marketing agency

40 years ago, when our agency started systematic PR work, there was still a common understanding of public relations and public relations. Since then, the number of communication channels has increased sharply and continues to grow. Completely new communication principles and text formats have been added via social media channels, apps and CRM tools. The fields of PR, advertising and digital merged to form the large playing field of content marketing. At the same time, media use has changed at a rapid pace. The press work of that time has developed into a broad spectrum of methods with which the entire purchase decision process can be supported, and entirely new communication and marketing goals for companies and brands can be achieved. Today, brands define themselves through their interactivity. What a transformation and development!

For many assignments, we as an agency today tend to talk to clients about strategy and goals, KPIs, topics and the customer journey. Unlike in the past, the press is not automatically part of the solution. Leading media will continue to play an important role in this process in the future.

Our PR agency’s trade journalists create search engine optimised content – from reports to social media

The main starting point of our agency work is the comprehensive expertise of our specialist editors and consultants with regard to our clients’ industries, technologies and markets. This is what makes it possible to develop content – be it texts, photos, graphics or films – that is valued by readers and users, by the press and other multipliers. And the more it is possible in the respective medium to transport the content by means of storytelling, the more memorable the content is, and the higher the interest in reading it. For the digital channels, the content is structured in such a way that the reader is guided smartly and didactically, and in the end perceives the offered and analysable interaction or has found the appropriate information for his or her purchase decision process. This is why the specialist editors in our PR agency are not simply called specialist editors, but transaction editors.

Strong partners for international public relations

If the market situation of the company differs significantly in the different target countries, which is often the case on closer examination, the measures will differ from country to country. As a result, we manage the budget with the help of a multi-faceted matrix that contains all relevant information.

Most of our clients want us to handle all international marketing from our headquarters in Stuttgart. Where necessary, we have extensive contacts to other PR agencies in Europe and the US. For PR in China and Asia, we count on the support of a committed partner.

Specialised colleagues concentrate on international journalist contacts with the help of a database. In order to strengthen personal contacts with journalists, we accompany many clients on their worldwide trade fair appearances.

AI-based software ensures high quality in the translation of PR texts

It goes without saying that our employees have a wide range of language skills. We work with a large number of translation agencies for verified translations. We often pre-translate the texts with the help of AI-based software. Native speakers will then take over the final editing in all cases. The main advantage of software support is that a growing glossary and translation memory are built up, which together ensure a high degree of consistency in the translations.

Tracking and analysis make PR success measurable

As a rule, we report the results to our clients on a monthly basis, across all channels and in accordance with the defined KPIs. When a certain level of diversity has been reached, we feed the results of all channels into a database. With your help, we can carry out benchmarking and draw up country and year-on-year comparisons and optimise the impact in the purchase decision process.
