Do you need to create a communication vehicle that brings in new clients? Communicates corporate messages? Helps your organization achieve its goals and objectives?
Help your organization achieve its business goals.
Want to enjoy raises, bonuses, promotions and job offers? There’s no better way to boost your career than aligning communication vehicles to the organization’s business strategy.
We’re helping Direct Energy communicators revamp their employee magazine to help the company achieve its bottom-line objectives. We gave FedEx a blueprint for transforming its management magazine into a strategic tool for the organization’s success.
Bring us in to help you align your communications to your organization’s goals.
Revamp your releases.
Too many communicators still write press releases the way Ivy Lee did when he invented the release 106 years ago. Apply current best practices to your releases with our in-depth news release review, NOT Your Father’s News Release webinar and before-and-after examples of your releases.
Too busy for that? We’ll write your releases for you.
Stop reinventing the wheel.
Get fill-in-the-blanks templates for your Web pages, articles, releases and other pieces.
We’ve given PetSmart Charities, General Dynamics C4 Systems, Tellabs and Direct Energy formulas, checklists and templates to make their communications more effective and less time-consuming. Let us do the same for you.
Get an extra pair of hands — or four.
Need a virtual staff to write and edit your communications?
Saint Luke’s, Northern Trust, State Street/Kansas City and Sprint Corp. have all turned to Wylie Communications for help. Let us pick up the slack in your department, too.
Revitalize a flagship piece.
We revamped Saint Luke’s Health into a more effective, attractive, popular magazine — for the same budget as its less-appealing predecessor. We’d love to help you reboot an old favorite, as well.
Outmaneuver the competition.
We benchmarked a Motorola company’s news releases against those of its competitors, then delivered guidelines to help the company set the standards for media relations writing in the industry. Let us help make your communications best-of-class, too.
