PR & Earned Media
The job of earned media is to create brand awareness with ‘non-paid’ media coverage. Media are always on the lookout for informative and relevant data that tell a unique story, which is where we come in. Our job is to package content that generates the interest of both the media and a brands target audience, so we can secure print, broadcast, and digital media coverage. Unlike paid-for advertising, earned media involves pitching story ideas, interview proposals and press releases into media. Published content then lends a great deal of credibility to the brand, while the frequency of coverage adds to a company’s SEO ranking.

Feedback from Louise Fourie about the company

“What a wonderful find! KOJ has been absolutely amazing in getting the word out to the relevant people. Their keen perception of the brand and strategic marketing plan meant that our Constantia branch was talked about long before the doors even opened. KOJ listens with awareness and spend time to research and understand the brand within the current climate. Their connections in the media space allows for high profile and targeted editorial across a variety of platforms. Hugely recommended!”

“We have used KOJ exclusively for our PR requirements for the past four years in support of both our annual Eco-Logic Awards and The Enviropaedia. In this time we were very happy with the PR results that KOJ have delivered and as a result wish to retain the services of KOJ for the foreseeable future. As a person, Candice has been a delight to work with, as a creative, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and solution orientated professional. She has also been a very helpful ‘sounding board’ – frequently providing assistance, support and advice in ways far exceeding ‘her professional duty.'”
