Developing a Public Relations Strategy is instrumental to influencing perceptions of your business and strengthening your brand’s reputation across all of its stakeholders – from existing clients and prospective leads to investors, suppliers, media and opinion-formers.
Why Employ a Public Relations Strategy?
A PR strategy goes beyond just publicity, ensuring key industry influencers are reached and organisational or campaign messages are tailored to resonate with the business’s target audiences which often span multiple stakeholders
Equally, a PR strategy can be deployed on a campaign basis, used to communicate clear and relevant messaging about a new product/service launch or news announcement such as merger/acquisition activity or company restructuring, for example.
The Luminescence Process
Our “Think. Share. Grow.” process we guide you through the strategic planning, execution, monitoring and evaluation of your communication activities, so that every activity, no matter how small, builds to support the organisation’s long-term objectives and over-arching vision.
Luminescence PR strategies take an ‘omni-channel’ approach – conveying brand messaging across media channels, from print media to social media to physical events – to ensure your brand cuts through in a high-speed, connected world.
Each strategy is developed in collaboration with your team, tailored to address your business’s specific challenges and tailored to effectively reach your specific stakeholders. Typically, this requires 2-3 consultation meetings. The typical strategy we produce is designed to empower your internal team to deliver the communication campaign over a 12-month period.

- Overall objectives

All of our strategy work utilises the SMART(ER)* planning framework, ensuring measurable business outcomes, not just activity outputs. Luminescence has also adopted the Integrated Evaluation Framework from AMEC, the international association for the measurement and evaluation of communication, ensuring our campaigns are held to stringent, industry-leading quality standards. As members of the CIPR, we are accountable to its Code of Conduct [AL2] and to develop and demonstrate ethical competence.
*Specific, Measurable, Assignable, Realistic, Time-bound, Evaluated and Reviewed.
