First on PRNewser: Movies.com, sister Website of online movie ticketing site Fandango, is looking for an agency. Harry Medved, Head of Public Relations for Fandango, is leading the search and tells PRNewser they are specifically going boutique and that “bigger firms shouldn’t apply.” Here are the details sent to us by Medved:
Movies.com, one of the most comprehensive movie information sites on the Web, is looking for a boutique firm to help shape and execute its PR strategy. Key activities include working with the Movies.com marketing team to identify key PR targets in order to best connect to the site’s consumer audience; coordinating inbound and outbound media relations; executing press release writing and distribution; developing key message points and social media strategy in relations to press and POV for consumers. Interested firms should provide at least three references (one current and two past), plus samples of relevant work. Be prepared to describe resources necessary – press lists, media tracking, etc. Firm would start immediately, so that a plan is in place in the next month.
