Crafting a winning PR plan

For SHAREit Lite, we took a multi-phase PR approach, initially focusing on the launch and then shifting to an ongoing media relations strategy that solidified the brand’s credibility and differentiated its offerings. We did this through a variety of tactics, including leveraging proprietary data, thought leadership, newsjacking, and targeted storytelling. Our team conducted industry analysis to suggest the right press releases to target through the media. By balancing SHAREit Lite’s unique selling points with impact, we were able to reach the right audiences without attempting a hard sell.
