The time to prepare is NOW
You’ll never know when that bad news will strike, and the reporters and live trucks won’t be far behind. In most instances, there are few things you can do to make the situation better… and many that can make them worse.
Do nothing…? That’s the worst choice.
Out with the Old
The old playbook used to call for “No comment.” Unfortunately, “no comment” won’t kill the story — it just gives other people the chance to decide for the news consumer how to interpret your tragedy.
And frankly, the old playbook doesn’t account for the way people consume news. You need to be your own publisher. And you need to be in the same channels where your reputation is won and lost.
We can help you establish the right protocols to monitor and engage – and engage in smart and consistent ways with the people who matter.
Since 2002, Positive Position Media Consulting has removed that fear by taking clients inside the process of how news becomes “news of the day.” We offer valuable insights on how to respond to interviews in emergency situations – and how you can craft the messages that instill confidence.
You won’t know when… You won’t know how… but you will need this information, to prevent an adverse situation from becoming worse.
