Each month, Priority Marketing highlights clients who have raised awareness through public relations. Elevated visibility through PR leads to increased sales, donations, volunteerism and buzz in the community. 

Clients’ earned media coverage includes spotlights and interviews in newspapers, magazines, television, radio, blogs and social media. 

This month, Priority Marketing is spotlighting media coverage for two clients – the Southwest Florida Community Prayer Breakfast and Del Mar Naples. Public relations efforts ultimately helped both clients reach their goals. Here is a behind-the-scenes look at those PR successes: 

Southwest Florida Community Prayer Breakfast 

Client Headlines - SWFL Community Prayer BreakfastThe Southwest Florida Community Prayer Breakfast is held annually on the first Thursday of May in observance of the National Day of Prayer. That’s when individuals of all faiths join in unified prayer for continued blessings on the nation. Southwest Florida has been honoring the National Day of Prayer since the Community Prayer Breakfast’s inception in 1988. This year’s event featured internationally renowned surgeon Dr. Ben Carson as keynote speaker.  

For several years, Priority Marketing has been providing public relations support for the event. In 2022, the firm also provided event planning, coordination and execution. In fact, it was all hands on deck for this year’s event as more than two dozen team members provided on-site support, including speaker coordination, guest relations, food service, media relations and other duties as assigned. Priority Marketing President and Chief Creative Officer Teri Hansen, APR, even provided interviews live on WINK-TV before the event. 

Here are links to some of the media coverage:
