Dear Wonderful Client, Will You Marry Me? I’ll Do Your PR?


Thomas J. Madden, Chairman and CEO, Transmedia Group

Don’t just propose in your PR proposals.  Show off what a prolific publicist you are.

Sure, you want clients to marry you, sign your contract, retain your services for better or worse until cancellation do you part.

But much better than saying how great you are and how much you want to have and to hold them is to show them what you’re made of.

In the first line of your proposal demonstrate for them how creative you are, exemplify what a productive spouse and partner you’d make.

Start off with a juicy slogan, a catchy phrase, a bold strategy.  Hit them right between the eyes with a PR plan with sizzle and makes sense.

The other day I fired off a proposal to a company called Basanite that manufactures a rebar that won’t rust.  The proposal started with this slogan followed by connecting it to COVID-19:

‘Basanite Makes InfrastructureSense.’

While currently our country is battling the Coronavirus, soon as that battle is won, another will start, which is rebuilding and repairing America’s infrastructure, its bridges, tunnels and buildings.

This time, however, it will need an infrastructure that will last. And today there’s a vaccine for infrastructure called BasaFlex , manufactured by Basanite Industries.

It’s equivalent to an industrial vaccine in the form of an enhanced Basalt Rebar that only Basanite Industries can provide, which adds intrinsic value in a concrete structure and is as a sustainable noncorrosive alternative to conventional steel reinforcement.


TransMediaGroup is a think tank when it comes to exposures and relationships for our clients!  And already we’ve reserved for you the domain   And on our proposal went showing off what we’re so good at!

Next, a marriage proposal to another client, a naturopathic physician, Dr. Jenny which started with the agency roster we planned to send out on PR Newswire if she hired us.  She did!  And out this went next day!
