Contact us today for a cost-free assessment!

NM Marketing Communications sets itself apart from other Chicago public relations specialists because we concentrate on a select number of markets and have extensive public relations experience on both sides: trade publisher and public relations agency.

Being a public relations specialist focused on a select number of business-to-business markets enables us to understand those industries and build long-term relationships that result in PR success for our clients.

We know how to work with editors because our public relations staff has served in editorial positions for such prominent industry magazines as Appliance, Die Casting Engineer and Modern Metals.


Benefits of Working with an Established PR Campaign Specialist

This knowledge and expertise benefits NM Marketing Communications's Chicago client campaigns in several ways:

  • Public relations plans focus on realistic, achievable ideas that will make an impact with your customers and prospects.
  • We already speak the industry "language," resulting in quick turnaround for the various public relations elements.
  • Working on related, but non-competitive programs, often results in synergies with editors and others. For instance, we may learn of a story opportunity for a client while discussing an idea for another client with an editor, or assemble an industry panel through our network of contacts.

Our PR firm services incorporate a variety of public relations tactics:

Press Releases - The Cornerstone of Public Relations

Press Releases - Press releases to appropriate business and trade media inform editors about new products, company developments and other newsworthy activities. A professionally written press release can make the difference between successfully attracting an editor's interest and having your story ignored.

NM Marketing Communications understands the many public relations factors that help a press release become successful ­ such as timeliness, newsworthiness and concise writing ­ and is adept at crafting effective press releases that will achieve your public relations objectives.

Media Relations - Key Contacts for Public Relations Visibility

Media Relations - Consistent, ongoing contact with editors develops effective public relations to identify a variety of public relations story opportunities and persuade editors to include your organization's public relations message in their coverage. Public relations stories might include special features identified by researching editorial calendars, positioning clients as industry experts for trend or roundup articles or comments on the state of the industry.

Successful public relations are achieved through a sustained public relations campaign with journalists, utilizing a set of public relations strategies and materials such as public relations media kits, fact sheets, press releases and, most importantly, personal persuasion. Journalists are inundated with information and "story pitches" from dozens of organizations.

NM Marketing Communications' PR firm services focus on a select number of industries, so we know what journalists want and how to reach them.

  • Build a community of loyal readers who are likely to do business with your company.
  • Influence buying decisions.

Speaking Engagements - Public Relations by Meeting the Public

Speaking Engagements - Speaking engagements allow you to tell your story in your own words to associations, trade groups and other business audiences in Chicago.

There are a number of opportunities for public relations presentations, ranging from speeches at monthly meetings for local chapters of national organizations, to participating as a panelist at a trade show or seminar, to keynote addresses at national forums.
