LIN PR was engaged in February 2014 to provide public relations planning and implementation for Visit Cook County. Prior to that, the organization had engaged in minimal PR outreach. As a first step LIN PR drafted a concise public relations plan hat focused on strategic outreach to travel and entertainment media bloggers, primarily in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Thunder Bay, Canada.
We tracked results for each campaign, and are pleased to report that we have achieved (by very conservative estimates) more than 500,000 to 1 million media impressions for each major outreach campaigns.
