Mastering Publicity Management: Turning Negative Attention into Positive Engagement with Google Ads

As Seen On

As we advance into an era of increasing online engagements, businesses are under continual scrutiny. The influence of publicity, both positive and negative, on consumer perception is a force to reckon with. Recognizing the power of this dynamic, businesses can capitalize on Google Ads to seize control of their narrative and effectively manage their public image.

Understanding the worth of using Google Ads to manage publicity requires an intuitive grasp of the various kinds of attention a business can attract. This attention could be driven by a myriad of factors such as influential product reviews, polemical remarks from the CEO, controversial on-campus activities, or celebrity endorsements championing health issues supported by your organization. Google Ads presents an unparalleled platform to deal with these and more.

Securing the first ad spot on Google offers numerous merits, among which is the opportunity to leverage positive feedback and address complaints head-on. This presents a unique challenge—distilling the essence of such a diverse range of interactions into a concise, impactful advertisement. Nonetheless, with careful implementation of a finely-calibrated plan, it’s an attainable feat.

Weathering the storm of publicity requires foresight, which is where professional PR departments, consultants, or dedicated agencies come into play. These entities work round-the-clock to keep a pulse on the evolving discourse around your company across various platforms to enable informed decision-making. Crucial to this task are tools such as Google Alerts, which monitor specific terms related to your organization, its leaders, and associated industry. Further enhancing this are Talkwalker alerts, a free service that complements Google’s offering. Recognition of situations like a sudden increase in branded search terms—which may signal a surge in business-relevant news or online discussions—can mean the difference literally between a fleeting moment of opportunity and a full-blown PR crisis.

Despite the helper tools, managing PR using PPC does come with its share of obstacles. Three of the most significant challenges include maintaining transparency while mitigating damage from negative publicity, optimizing spend to effectively target right audiences despite volatile trends, and finding the balance between addressing issues and promoting the business. However, by implementing a well-devised, strategic plan, these hurdles can be surmounted effectively.

The ever-changing landscape of online engagement presents enterprises with a unique set of opportunities and challenges. Google Ads, coupled with proactive monitoring, can prove to be a powerful tool in successfully navigating the waters of publicity management. As we continue on this path of digital evolution, those who excel will be the ones that have mastered the art and science of turning negative attention into positive engagement—after all, in the world of business, all publicity is an opportunity waiting to be harnessed.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
