People buy products and choose services from brands they believe in and trust. Trust comes from credibility, which is built through public relations. The key is publicizing all of the good things that a company does in all of its realms, and keeping that company in the public eye. Public relations does this through the most credible path of third-party affirmation. Earned media. Trusted.

Public relations through The Thomson Group also accomplishes this through interpersonal communications from email campaigns to social media to ghost writing to blogs to strong web site content to interacting and handling members of the media.

Content will always be king for a company’s marketing needs. Regardless of how the mediums change, the content — the message, the story — is still the core.

The Thomson Group draws on decades of experience to create unparalleled content for our clients, which include public, private and political clients. Whether it is web sites, social media, blogs, ghost writing, native advertising or other content, we are professionals at conveying the message in the most meaningful way.

The Thomson Group works with the best talent on the Gulf Coast of Florida to tell the compelling story of your company, to get that message out so that potential customers see it — and believe it.

Plus, The Thomson Group has a unique understanding of what editors and reporters want for those seeking earned media in the form of news stories. We craft press releases as news stories, pitching leads and angles that business owners and most PR firms would not see. And we know which reporters and publications to pitch. It comes from understanding over three decades of what editors and reporters want, what works and what does not work.

But we do much more. Every communication with your clients and customers is important to your business thriving. And we are experts in making sure that communication is pitch perfect.
