Media Relations

To ensure media saturation about your products, services, VIPs and more, you need the right press contacts and a strong message. TSN Communications has formed relationships with countless media contacts from national, hometown and trade publications across the country.

We can design a specific media communication strategy for your company that will provide measurable, results-driven media outreach.

Digital Media Integration

Digital media is any media or communications for your brand or organization that is shared online. This includes social media, blogging, online press releases and photos, and even website copy. Digital media lends itself to having more control over your message and your audience than traditional media alone. This can create timely conversations with your potential customers, put a voice to your brand, and maintain brand loyalty. Using digital media to send brand information complements traditional media outreach and aims to catch and retain your audience’s attention.

Brand Strategy

From planning to implementation, TSN Communications will work to ensure branding messages are consistent throughout all your marketing components, strengthening your organization’s identity within your industry.

In today’s world of communications and media relations, it’s important to quickly and easily identify the target audience for your news. Having access to a media database simplifies that work, but you still need to know how to leverage the information contained within it to build and cultivate a working relationship with the media.

An association’s credibility and customer loyalty relies on sustaining a strong brand identity. TSN Communications can help you establish a positive identity through creative design, consistent messaging, promotional materials and membership recruitment programs.

Maximize Media Attention

From the message to the medium, a company’s growth comes from making its products and services known. Whether it is a well-placed ad or a targeted press release distribution, TSN can handle all facets of reaching out to the media to get results.

TSN currently uses Cision to create targeted media outlet lists for various industry outreach and to obtain the necessary contact information for press attending upcoming events and expos, or inform of breaking news events. Cision allows TSN the capability to contact thousands of media contacts at the click of a button. TSN distributes press releases using both the email capabilities of Cision and PRWeb, an online, interactive, multimedia press release distribution service (provided through Cision) that reaches a wide online audience, including journalists, bloggers, and end users.

Internet Video or Animations

We guide you from concept and script-writing to shooting, editing and distribution. We offer a wide range of video production services for all industries. Whether you are looking for professional video, Internet broadcast or animations, or webinars, we provide personalized production services for every budget.

  • Do you have a monthly or quarterly meeting to attend?
  • Does your company have a new or existing product/service to promote?
  • Is your company taking part in a large event coming up?
  • Are you looking to establish your company as an industry leader?
