Strategy & Branding

Bill Gates said it best when he said:
“If I was down to my last dollar, I’d spend it on public relations.”  

“If I was down to the last dollar of my marketing budget I’d spend it on PR!”

At Kaye Communications, we are Seriously Strategic! in everything we do, never taking a cookie-cutter template approach. And its never about a single news release, brochure, blog, e-blast, ad or distribution list…but rather a dynamic and brand consistent integrated communications strategy supported by deep, long-established collaborative strategic alliances and relationships. Even when missions seem be short-term and close-ended limited to a specific timeframe (like a grand opening or event), it is vital to know how these invested efforts and achievements can be parlayed to significantly impact long-term brand growth.  Examples include increasing brand value with trademarked assets and loyal “friends and fans” ownership is positioning company for future sale or merger or for use in attracting bank and investor capital.

In this ever-changing volatile business environment, changes happen quickly, often without having time to plan. When an executive resigns to move to a competitor or for health reasons, or a company has to terminate a director or even whole departments for a variety of reasons…what happens next can leave senior teams and departments rudder-less.

This disruptive worklife event can be highly damaging to your brand–internally or externally, critically weakening your positioning, and worse, opening the opportunity for stakeholders and loyal audiences to try a competitor while waiting for your chaos to settle down. And then you have the Herculean task of winning them back! And then keeping them.

When you have Kaye Communications as an integral on-going partner in your company leadership, our team is poised to immediately jump in (as we have done so many times!) and serve as an outsourced in-house team or even recruit and/or provide a KCOM executive to lead onsite in times of unanticipated communications executive severance or transition.
