Public Relations

Media Relations

Understanding the media environment and successfully guiding our clients through it is a key component of our services. In today’s media climate, businesses and governments face greater immediate scrutiny than ever. We enable clients to proactively manage this critical relationship.

Leveraging a wide, constantly cultivated network of media relationships, we work with each client to define and deliver messages that protect and strengthen their interests.

Community Engagement

Through philanthropic efforts, promotional events, speaking programs and other outreach activities, we build brand awareness and broaden relationships for our client partners with like-minded organizations to increase visibility and market exposure. The Ehrhardt Group has strong relationships with organizations throughout the region including non-profits, economic development groups, convention and visitors bureaus, and many others. We make introductions and ensure strategies are aligned.

Campaigns

Through our comprehensive public relations campaigns, we counsel a cross-section of businesses and public entities in their communication needs on a daily basis.

Allowing our clients to engage with their stakeholders and achieve desired outcomes is the foundation of our representation and partnership.

Special Events and Openings

For decades, we have launched some of the most noteworthy events in the city, state, and region. We’ve coordinated and successfully executed high-visibility events for many of our clients. With an eye on creativity and a backbone of organization, we consider ourselves expert event pros, and our many successes in this area testify to this.

Our grand opening (and re-opening) experience encompasses a range of events—from grand-opening parties and parades to media and guest previews—for institutions throughout the region, including The Roosevelt New Orleans, Galatoire’s 33 Bar & Steak, Galatoire’s Bistro, Superior Seafood and Oyster Bar, Harrah’s Casino and multiple Harrah’s properties, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, Morton’s The Steakhouse, The National D-Day Museum and Pacific Wing, among others.

Presentations and Interview Skills Training

Our job isn’t done when we secure an interview for one of our clients. We see the entire process through to ensure that the story is on-time and on-message. We make sure all client spokespersons are prepared and confident walking into any media opportunity. Professionals at TEG regularly media train our clients, reinforcing key messages, providing interview techniques and on-camera exercises.

Measuring Success

At the Ehrhardt Group, we measure success in many ways. We track all media coverage and report it to you, factoring in media impressions and publicity value. We monitor awareness, perception and public engagement and then, together, we judge whether our message is reaching the most important audiences and impacting business goals.
