In this role, Gorden will focus on leading the culture, training, and development of our teams.  And, she will also manage and oversee the company’s PR teams and their activities.  Gorden began her career as an intern in 2017 and worked her way up to Publicist in 2019. She has acted as a catalyst in keeping clients happy and satisfied with much success in the wellness industry.

“Working at Dunn Pellier Media has been the fuel to my health and wellness fire. I’ve always had a fondness for the industry, but getting the opportunity to work with game-changers, thought leaders, and others interrupting the space has catapulted my fondness into passion,” said Gorden.

New Goals for the Company

Dunn Pellier Media is also happy to welcome Jocelyn ClendeningElon University graduate of 2021 and former intern, to the team as a Junior Publicist. This role will report to Shea Gorden, Director of PR.

Public Relations: Your Secret Weapon to Build Your Brand

Read on to Learn How Our Brands Increased Sales In Uncertain Times…

During the stay at home quarantine, our PR clients with wellness brands contributed to a great many media opportunities – from Forbes to Mashable to Fox and NBC. Clients have reported back to us, that the media attention has increased sign-ups for their fitness programs as well as record sales for health products. The clients who invested in having a PR team are benefiting now and so can you! There is a huge spike in media requests for anything immune-wellness related. We are currently doing “short push campaigns” with clients while everyone is adjusting to the “new normal.” With media attention, you and your product will be seen by more consumers reading articles and seeing product roundups than ever before. We are helping businesses just like yours, and we would love to help you gain more sales, signups, and increased recognition with valuable earned media placements!

Our brands used PR to gain brand recognition and increase sales during this global pandemic in a positive way. They took a risk and it paid off.  During this time you may have had to make choices about what you could and couldn’t do with your marketing efforts. We saw the media power that our brands were able to offer to readers and viewers to nurture people in the middle of a global pandemic.   With the restrictions loosening up you may be thinking about how to sharpen your lens and create new PR and marketing efforts to get more exposure for your brand.  We can assure you – through personal experience with our clients – this is one of the best times that you could help your health or wellness brands grow, gain credibility, and increase sales.

From the moment the stay-at-home orders were put in place, we pivoted immediately and went into high gear for our clients. Over the past 12 weeks, our clients with wellness brands contributed to a great many media opportunities – from Forbes to Mashable to Fox and NBC and more – some of them for the first time ever.

Take our client, Dr. Steven Quay. Dr. Quay came to us having invented seven FDA-approved drugs, and he invented his next treatment during COVID-19 that was showing promising results for easing the ventilator crisis. His combination of blood thinners and asthma drugs were presented to doctors to save coronavirus patients from needing intubation. Dr. Quay’s solution was to offer doctors patients more lung function and reduce the need for mechanical ventilation – exactly what the frontlines in NYC needed! With no television experience and a short session with famed media coach Suzanne Sena, he made his national tv debut on Fox News. His goal was to sign up to 100 doctors interested in participating in the clinical trial to get people off of ventilators. An overwhelming response with over 350 doctors signed up after the Fox segment aired!

In addition to Dr. Quay, clients have reported back to us that the media attention has increased sign-ups for their fitness programs as well as record sales for health products. Like Bulldog Yoga. When they originally came to us, one of their goals was to offer 30 days free on the online yoga platform to help people relieve stress through exercise with a workout class of yoga with fun music. On the back end, the virtual workout class program and platform were currently getting about 25 online sign-ups a week before our PR campaign. Within the first two weeks with our services – the number of sign-ups went to 125 a week for this fitness platform!

Client Tropical Oasis reported that their sales increased 4x what it was before the homestay, and this boom in sales resulted in the company investing to buy another factory to help produce more products to help American’s boost their immune health with liquid vitamins!

It is clear that the clients who invested in having a PR team are benefiting now and so can you!

Because of the current landscape, there is a huge spike in media requests for anything immune to wellness related. As such, we are currently doing “short push campaigns” with clients while everyone is adjusting to the “new normal.”  With media attention, you and your product will be seen by more consumers reading articles and seeing product roundups than ever before.  We are helping businesses just like yours, and we would love to help you gain more sales, signups, and increased recognition with valuable earned media placements!

PR is crucial if you want to stay ahead of the rest of the world in normal times, but in these new times, where everything has gone online, its importance has increased beyond measure. Public relations is often the force behind brands that “suddenly” skyrocket into growth. It’s just like those “overnight successes” you may have seen. They may seem like an overnight success, but in truth, they have been working strategically to grow and build their products and brands so that when the time was right, they were the experts to call on. PR positioned them to be those experts. PR is about building that foundation, and we are proud to have helped so many people do that. It is paying off now during these times more than at any other time that we have seen.

But you can’t just pick any PR team. It’s crucial that you find a team that matches your brand and is a good working fit. That way, as a team, you can take a look at the media landscape in the US and the current changes taking place. Relationship building is the cornerstone of public relations. Like any great relationship, the foundation of success is trust.
