Access Communications

HANDS-ON SENIOR MANAGEMENT
Our senior managers are closely involved on every account to ensure that the account teams do not slip into executional mode, but instead rise above the everyday activities to constantly look for additional ways to meet objectives, and ensure that strategies map back to measurable goals.

STRATEGIC ANALYSIS

Because the genesis of Access was in the convergence of consumer audiences and technology companies and their products, we use our experience to focus on what lies ahead for our clients and their industries. We anticipate new market and demographic trends and assist in developing relationships that evolve into strategic alliances. We're able to apply what we know to our client's programs and influence media and public perceptions.

CONSISTENT STAFF

We have a highly motivated, balanced staff of public relations professionals, including specialists, serving all accounts. Access understands the value of nurturing our staff, enabling us to ensure that turnover is low and staff teams remain consistent and happy. No staff member ever works on more than four accounts. Our clients are well served with consistent management and experienced staff.

MEASURABLE OBJECTIVES

Access begins a PR campaign with a clear idea of the expected results, and throughout the program, measures these results to determine whether they meet our original objectives or need re-evaluation. Access goes beyond the "quantitative" analysis to look for deeper, more qualitative results:

"Were the messages conveyed accurately?"


"Did the vacation package sell more after a campaign?"


"Were retailers more prone to stocking the product following publicity?"

We use this ongoing evaluation of execution against goals to refine a PR program and return with measurable results.
