We chatted with this public relations powerhouse to explain ‘Pure Press by EMR Media’ and what it means to people trying to instantly tell their story on a global scale, economically.
Firstly, thank you for dropping by. Tell us about your background?
Thank you so much. Yes, so since the early 1990’s, I have been working in marketing, branding and communications. I started out working for a Telecoms company in affiliate marketing and the events team for the Rugrats on Nickelodeon and the then newly launched Discovery Network and Paramount Television out of Covent Garden in London.
Around 2000, I was headhunted and wound up in Marbella in Spain heading up the Exhibition Department buying large amounts of advertising and procuring editorial coverage for a real estate company. Needless to say, I became very good friends with the editorial teams at The Daily Mail, The Times, and The Sunday Express.
In 2004, I launched my own company EMR Media where we have been specializing in tangible global marketing and public relations strategies for clients through press placements, red carpet press events, marketing, and brand development, as well as film and television production and promotion.
Fast forward eighteen years, we continue to tailor-make media plans with our clients and their teams across industries, varying from entertainment to book publishing, fashion shows, entrepreneurialism, and global businesses. We produce events, films, TV shows and work on distribution. As a film publicist, I think I have around 98 film and TV credits listed on IMDb.
We know you are incredibly successful in communications, so why the new sub-service ‘Pure Press by EMR Media’?
Over the past few years, and especially during the recent pandemic, I have noticed that people no longer want to be tied into a three to four month PR retainer contract and instead really only want to have instant gratification with press placements over the course of maybe one month with press interviews and articles that can be turned around in one day. ‘Pure Press by EMR Media’ is that very solution.
We still offer traditional targeted public relations for our clients, red carpet press events, radio and TV interviews, networking and paparazzi strategies but this new service is unique for the storyteller that wants pure press.
How can you guarantee press publications?
Over the many years of working with the media, I have developed special relationships with major global news sites and can now guarantee a news story or interview being published through one of my media partners. If the article is ready to go, it can be a fast process and turn-around. No stress, just super simple.
Wow. This is a whole new thing. How many news sites can you guarantee?
Oh, I have over 300 news outlets I can guarantee press with. Many are premium Google news sites and international publications. I love this new offering for not just our existing clients but anyone that has a story to tell, because I can literally take an interview, with a photo or maybe a video clip or music video and upload it to the news outlet. Within sometimes minutes I can be texting the client the link to post on their social media.
Tell us, do these articles need to be ready to go?
Well, if they are then great, but we help craft the interview if someone needs that extra help. We also edit articles and help with choosing that perfect photo or image to go with the article – because we all know what we put out on the Internet sticks around for a long time. It needs to look great!
What sort of media publications are you offering with ‘Pure Press by EMR Media’?
I have deliberately partnered with a wide cross section of media outlets so we can service any business sector or brand. Of course, I have my personal Google News favorites that I package to make the choosing easier for people – we have over 300 news outlets. Some are high profile news that are household names, as well as some amazing international and entertainment outlets that support the indie musician and rising star of the silver screen. We even cater to the new virtual world of Crypto and NFT’s!
Do people need to have big budgets to work with you?
Absolutely not! That’s what ‘Pure Press by EMR Media’ is about. It’s a cost effective press service. If you have a compelling story, a project to publicize or just something to brag about, we can amplify your words into any of our media outlets with disruption guaranteed!
We hear that loud and clear!
Thank you, Liz Rodriguez, for taking the time to chat with us today. How can people find you?
