JRS Strategies Consulting

JRS Strategies, LLC works with our clients to find the right voice and message for every opportunity, and share it through press releases, op-eds, social media, and direct contact with traditional media sources. With the numerous avenues for voters to get information, a strong new and earned media presence is essential for shaping and sharing a message. Sending out a press release or deciding to start a blog is not enough. News reporters need a hook and a personal contact they already know.

Even though they are free to join and great for personal use, social networking sites and other social media tools require careful planning to truly leverage their value for campaigns. JRS Strategies helps clients navigate the new media landscape, establish and refine an online brand, and engage with voters, reporters, and decision-makers to spread their message in the most cost-efficient ways possible. JRS Strategies can drive the news cycle and leverage new media tools to break through the clutter and tell a narrative. JRS is available for on-going consulting and one-time needs as well.
