An IPO public relations campaign starts long before an IPO happens. In fact, it should really be referred to as a pre IPO PR campaign.
The months – even years – before a public listing, is the time to take stock of the public’s perception of you and your business and look at your market position, your brand’s reputation, your competitors, and any innovations.
Pre IPO PR activity then follows, which is all about putting a strategic plan in place in order to set you up for your debut on the stock market, whether that’s six months before the float or two years.
This is the time to be concise and consistent with the messaging. As a result, a successful pre IPO campaign will establish your company’s position in the market, reinforce your values, showcase your competitive advantages and raise the profile of you and the company’s leadership team.
“It’s vital to work with an IPO PR pro that can get the right messaging in front of the right potential investors so they know a company is listing and what the strategy is going forward. This can be the difference between a successful first day of trading or one where a company fails to make an impact.” – Jill Kent, PR Superstar
