Jive PR + Digital | Los Angeles PR & Digital Marketing

Don't just speak, say something.

We make you memorable with impactful public relations, social PR and digital marketing campaigns.

Jive's beginnings as a two-person team has evolved into a fleet of account managers, social media strategists, digital specialists, and media experts. Even though we've grown, we've made it a priority to keep our boutique, personalized touch.

We enjoy telling a great story - we delve into your company's history, objectives, and most importantly, your people. We know that brands are backed by incredible people with inspiring stories. Jive becomes so immersed in your company - understanding the ins and outs of your brand - that we become your extended family.

What We Do

We find your unique voice, polish it and share it with the world through social PR and digital media. Then, we test it to make sure it resonates with your ideal customer. All of our communications campaigns are backed by data. If it is not working, we adjust it until it does.

Social Media & Digital Media Marketing

Strategy Development: Without a strong strategy, great content is wasted. We figure out your business objectives, do a social media and competitor audit and then build out a strategy that is tied to measurable results. And no, not everyone should be on Twitter! We also identify social media channels most relevant to your brand and give you proven tactics that drive engagement.

Analytics: We created a proprietary measurement tool fueled to track your KPIs a.k.a. Key Performance Indicators based on your existing social media community and customized industry-specific engagement. In layman’s terms, we determine the appropriate mix of metrics so when you walk into that big meeting, you have the numbers to back you up.

Social Media Execution Options:

1) Sit back and relax: A Jiver can take care of all content development and deployment for you. We’ve got the proven skills required to replicate your corporate voice (or help you find one), craft messages and content, schedule at the perfect time, and connect with your audience.

2) Get your hands dirty with a little support: Already have a social media manager on your team? Then you might prefer to develop your content in-house and just tap into us for best practices and useful performance tools. We’ll show you our ninja tricks!

Social PR & Influencer Engagement

With traditional media shrinking, digital influencers are becoming more important and their trusted, authentic voices are a crucial piece of the digital marketing pie.

An influencer is a person, usually in the digital space, who rtssesses a lot of clout and their trusted endorsements are listened to. An endorsement from a single influencer in your niche can create more impact than a feature story in an established newspaper.

Our digital team curates lists of credible influencers in your industry and engages in conversations with them on social platforms. This is a long-term ‘digital romance’ process not a one-hit pitch. It all pays off when they become your biggest cheerleaders and eventually brand ambassadors.

Traditional & Digital Media Relations

Strategy: If you want to be successful, you need a clear, defined and proven road map to get there. We start our relationship off with a deep discovery meeting to define your objectives, brainstorm ideas, and establish your key messages. We then put these into an actionable and measurable strategy that gets results.

Personalization: Are press releases still used today? You bet. However, the backbone of our success is based on the ‘relations’ in media relations. We hone in on the gems of the story told in the press release and customize each pitch based on what individual journalists will be interested in covering. This targeted pitching results in 30-40% higher pick-up than mass distribution.

Integration: The perfect message will fall flat if you don’t know where your audience is. We use a multi-channel approach relevant to your brand to find them! Whether it’s tweeting out a press release or calling a journalist, we ensure the story reaches the right audience through the right channels.

Social Media Advertising

A lot of agencies will create and blast out standard ads in order to hit a budget quota. Not at Jive! We take the time to handcraft and customize ads to organic campaigns while simultaneously testing and measuring to make sure they are effective.

When we setup social ad buys we ask you the critical questions:

+ Who is your audience, and how do they translate online?
+ What are your business objectives?
+ How do business objectives translate to digital objectives?
+ Where does social media fit into your sales funnel?

We breakdown your community into small groups of users and create multiple ads that we hyper-target and split-test. With deep metrics guiding us, we monitor and hone in on the top performing posts or ads, bringing you the best ROI for the lowest cost-per-click a.k.a. CPC.

Thought Leadership

You become the thought leader, we do the legwork!

We extract your expertise and translate it into content, for traditional newspaper columns, high-profile blog contributions, speaking opportunities and awards. Discussing topics about your industry, your work culture, and vision allows you to develop a unique angle as a thought leader.

We build partnerships on your behalf so that you and your company become the ‘go-to’ expert and resource when media are developing news stories. We also actively seek out speaking engagements and profiling opportunities – facilitating all aspects of coordination and execution.

 

Demographic Outreach

The best way to describe demographic outreach is as a grassroots strategy that takes your key messages directly to your core audience.

Instead of reaching out to media, we speak directly to the people you want to connect with in a more personalized way.

We find out where they are located and what their interests are (what newsletters do they read, are they members of a group, etc.) and then tap into those sources to have them tell their members or subscribers about your business. This strategy works well for creative brands who have niche audiences as it provides more organic reach.

Branded Content & Video

Content makes for killer SEO/SEM and is arguably the most important part of a search driven strategy.

We cleverly match our market insights with your business objectives to build creative assets that tell the visual story of your brand. Branded content is proven to be 90% useful to consumers and can be used across multiple channels (website, blog, social media, newsletters, etc.)

Leave it in our hands to manage the entire development process from creative concept to execution.

Experiential Events & Production

A great life is full of amazing experiences! We help you create memorable experiences that wow customers, influencers and media.

An experiential event is a platform to create small, immersive experiences for media, influencers and customers. They get to interact with your company, hear your brand story, and eventually champion your brand with a greater understanding of your brand’s ethos.

Hearing and reading about something is one thing, but experiencing it on a physical and emotional level is what differentiates you from your competition.

From a restaurant launch to a grandiose ballroom event, Jive takes care of all your event planning and production needs. We manage sourcing of suppliers including décor, catering and music. We are your one-stop shop and work together with you to draw attendance to your event.

Who We Are

We're multi-disciplinary, collaborative storytellers. Each person brings their own unique element of fun and surprise. Whether it be determining #SquadGoals for the day or choosing between #BourbonandBubbles, it's never a dull moment around here. Find out more about our Jivers.
