Media Relations Agency - Saxum

CapabilitiesMedia Relations

The right story in the right hands at the right time​

In media relations, the “why” is more important than the “what.” Every organization has a story – the what – but most organizations struggle to identify the “why.” Why does the audience need to know? Why is it a story worth telling? Why should it be told now? Why is it right for this media outlet?

Saxum helps uncover the “why,” which is a critical and often overlooked step in effective media relations. We look beyond the “what,” and focus on the factors that drive media and use those insights to help your organization work in partnership with the media to produce stories that are timely, accurate, complete, powerful and influential.

    What Spurs Your Creativity?

    At Saxum, we pride ourselves with creativity at our center. To some, creativity comes in a lightbulb moment and for others, creativity takes time. Looking for inspiration, I asked five Saxumites what they do to cultivate their creativity. Madison Bryan, Digital Strategist What spurs your creativity? “At work, it’s getting together and chatting with people. Then I go and do research to get ideas because you can’t be creative when you don’t know enough about something. I also do a lot of industry research, and I do a ton of reading just to see what others are doing and how…

    Looking Back: Celebrating Saxum’s History

    We’ve been feeling especially reflective around here the last few weeks, as Saxum recently celebrated its 13th anniversary. To commemorate, we’d like to take you on a walk down memory lane to reminisce on a few of our greatest milestones to date. If you’re not familiar with our early history, you may not know that C. Renzi Stone, our CEO, started Saxum in his living room 13 years ago. He quickly hired his first employee, now Senior Vice President of HR and Operations, Sara Walker. Saxum officially filed as an LLC on July 29, 2003 and by 2004, we added…

    Branding Q&A with Dan Martel and Chad Bianco

    Branding. It’s one of the most important – and most misunderstood – concepts in the world of marketing. I sat down with a couple of Saxum’s branding experts, Dan Martel and Chad Bianco, to find out exactly why branding is so fundamental for companies today. How would you describe branding? Dan: It’s the single most important thing that any organization has going for them. It’s their lifeblood, and their overall identity. Chad: It represents how your audience sees you. It’s the feeling people get when they come in contact with your brand. What is the biggest misconception about branding? Dan:…

    How Design Impacts Diversity

    Here at Saxum, we embrace diversity. We also know that diversity itself is a spectrum that includes ethnicity, race, religion, gender orientation and more — and we have also come to associate diversity with how people work and how people think. From people that are detail-driven, to the big-picture thinkers, from designers to accountants, everyone here is different. Every day and every hour at Saxum, we work toward finding ways to foster a more inclusive environment that acknowledges and invites diversity into our conversations, our work, our problem solving and our lives. Diversity and inclusivity are inexorably linked. Design, as with any profession,…
