Content Marketing

Once you capture a prospect in your online ecosystem, you open a number of new marketing channels for your team. All this starts with a strong content marketing strategy. We’re experts at developing great content that boosts search rankings, increases Web traffic, drives social shares and generates sales leads.

Social Media Marketing

Lead generation through social media is possible, even in a B2B setting. Your audiences are active on social media. They’re talking about your company, your products and services, your competitors and your industry. With the right approach, these channels can be used to drive ongoing conversations, Web traffic and even sales conversions. We have the results to prove it.

Infographics & Data-Driven PR Campaigns

If you want to change the conversation, you better have the data to back it up. We dig through proprietary data, survey CIOs, and poll consumers to generate thought provoking data points to be packaged up into a data report and visualized through infographics. We then use this interesting piece of data to drive massive media interest, thought leadership, and sales leads through report downloads.

Influencer & Analyst Relations

Influencer and analyst relations are a crucial component of any successful marketing and public relations strategy. Gartner, Forrester and other industry analysts define key trends and influence media coverage, purchasing decisions, investor opinion and industry status. Let us help you speak with these key influencers.

Search & Digital Media

Search marketing is evolving, and marketers are refocusing their strategies to work toward getting found by users through any medium – not just search engines. Walker Sands understands that search visibility now ultimately depends on an integrated relationship among public relations, social media and the production of high-quality content.
