Is PR For You?

PR can bring some amazing benefits, including building your visibility, credibility and authority. But we’ll be the first to admit that PR isn’t right for everyone. So how can you tell whether it’s the best next step for you and your business?

First, imagine that you share a story which is important to you and it goes viral. Here’s what might happen:

In other words – people know your name. People know who you are and what you do. You’re respected as a leader in your field. People quote you as an expert. People look up to you. People want to be like you.

So, to answer the initial ‘is PR for you’ question, I would reply with a question of my own…

DO YOU HAVE A MESSAGE YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH

the WORLD?

You might already have a sizeable audience on social media, but you want to reach more people who aren’t already in your orbit. You might only have a modest following on your platforms, but you know that what you do is important and what you say deserves to be heard not by hundreds of people but by MILLIONS.

Most of our clients come to us with decades of experience and all kinds of qualifications under their belts. What they do is amazing and they make a huge impact on those they work with. However, they share one problem – not enough people know they exist. They see others in their niche who have become household names and wonder how they can do the same. They know they can make a real difference but feel like they are constantly having to prove their credibility and build trust with potential clients. They believe they could be doing even more if they could get themselves and their expertise in front of more of the right kind of people.

At Dauntless PR, we help entrepreneurs, coaches, therapists, experts and business owners to stop hiding in the shadows and step into the spotlight where they can really make a difference. It’s our mission to help you be seen.

As the sales trainer and entrepreneur Grant Cardone once said: “Obscurity is a bigger problem than money. You can’t get anywhere flying under the radar.”

For example, let’s say you’re some kind of coach, consultant or therapist – a relationship coach, for argument’s sake. I just did a search on LinkedIn for ‘relationship coach’. Take a look at this: 1,650,000 results! That’s a lot of people doing the same thing as you and competing for the same clients.

SO HOW DO YOU CUT THROUGH ALL THE

NOISE

and start being noticed?

Answer: through the power of mass media – PR. We have a very specific method to both get you noticed – and keep you being noticed. We implement a strategy called ‘Mass Omnipresence’…

This strategy isn’t about getting 100,000 followers on Instagram (although that can happen too). It’s about leveraging the power of traditional mass media to share your story with millions of people. We encourage you to tell both personal and business stories as well as give your expert viewpoint and opinions in everything from regional press and niche publications to huge online news sites and major TV shows. This power of social proof – other people talking about you – has a bigger effect on your credibility than almost anything else you can do.

If you were to enrol with us as your PR agency today, here’s what would happen next:

We Uncover Your

KEY MESSAGES AND INSPIRING STORIES

On a one-hour call with our resident journalist, we will learn all about you, your expertise and the stories and perspectives you want to share with the world.

This is so we can write compelling pitches which will grab the attention of journalists and producers and make them eager to speak to you themselves.

The stories we pitch to the media on your behalf will always be authentic to you. We’ll never push you into sharing something you’re not comfortable with or ask you to be someone you’re not.

When you join Dauntless, we become your biggest cheerleaders and we will always celebrate the things about you which make you unique.

For example, Juliet Owen-Nuttall is a fertility coach from the UK. She helps women over 40 get pregnant without IVF. As she explains in the video below – she invested more than £20k in traditional well-meaning marketing coaches, who told her to market her services in a certain way.

Expensive ads ended up burning a hole in her pocket and only sent her bad leads who she didn’t resonate with. After we shared the raw, emotional story of Juliet’s infertility journey far and wide around the world, she found that women just like her started reaching out and requesting her help. Her business grew 100% and she was able to switch off her ads!

WE TALK ABOUT YOU TO OUR

MEDIA CONTACTS

Every single day, the Dauntless team is talking to and building relationships with journalists working at the very media outlets you want to appear in. They come to us from all over the world to find experts, case studies and stories they know their audience will love.

In a typical day, our inbox is flooded with between 70 and 100 requests from journalists, offering potential opportunities to our clients. Why do we get this many? Because collectively as a team, we have decades of experience.

We’ve sent great stories to journalists everywhere for years. They trust us and we understand exactly what they’re looking for, so they keep coming back for more.

We’re talking to these journalists anyway, but if you join us, we’ll be talking to them about YOU.

Iman Gatti is a certified grief coach from Canada who got featured in Fortune, Business Insider, Newsweek, Closer, Mashable, Popsugar, Metro UK, HuffPost, Pick Me Up and many more – reaching an audience of more than 500 million. As a result, her TikTok following soared to over 11,000.

We Pitch The Opportunities

That Suit You

When you work with Dauntless, we never push you into doing anything that doesn’t feel right for you or your brand. We offer you opportunities and it’s up to you which ones you go for.

Unlike many traditional PR firms, which will spend the first three months planning and preparing you, we start pitching you straight away.

We can’t promise instant fame but we do pride ourselves in taking action quickly and getting FAST results.

For example, in just two weeks, UK Therapist Martin Rothery was featured on This Morning, BBC Radio, The Daily Telegraph, The Derbyshire Times (twice), The Derby Telegraph and MSN.

You Get Featured in

Cool Stuff

We get you featured in a glorious mixture of media as we have found this gets our clients the best results.

The people we work with appear on TV, radio and podcasts as well as in magazines, newspapers, digital news outlets and industry-specific publications all over the world.

And while we get our clients featured in well-known outlets, we don’t make the mistake of underestimating the power, influence and reach of the many mid-tier publications entertaining, informing and inspiring audiences across the globe.

Lyndsey Murray is a sex therapist from Texas and explains “My favourite placements are Forbes, Woman & Home, Cosmo and Vice, but honestly there are so many more – these are just the first ones to come to mind.“

When Lyndsey came to us she was an exceptional therapist doing amazing work but outside Dallas where she practiced, no one knew she existed. She has now filled up her 1-1 slots and created a group programme to deal with all the extra demand.

She has reached an audience of more than one billion people with her expert advice on sex and relationships.

Not only that, her confidence has grown and she now truly sees herself as the expert and leader that she is.

Lyndsey came to us as a highly competent therapist who was only known locally in Dallas.

She has now filled up her 1-1 slots and has created a group programme to deal with all the extra demand.

She has reached an audience of over one billion people with her expert advice on sex and relationships.

Not only that, her confidence has grown and she now truly sees herself as the expert and leader that she is.

Repeat

Over and Over Again!

PR builds on momentum and the more you are featured in the media, the more journalists will be clamouring to feature you in their articles and on their shows.

This not only helps you to grow your business and social media following but can also lead to other opportunities such as speaking gigs, awards and brand collaborations.

Kendra Capablo was already a successful couples therapist in the USA when she came to us.

However, she wanted people talking about her and knowing her name across the globe – and she knew she couldn’t do that with just the occasional news article here and there.

She’s been featured in a long list of publications everyone has heard of – including Forbes, Cosmopolitan, Elle, MSN, Newsweek and Women’s Health.

In just 8 months, she reached an audience of almost 1.5 billion with her message.

Now Kendra is seen globally as a leading expert in her field. She has a level of credibility above that of the average therapist – because of her Mass Omnipresence.

Now imagine for a moment what it would be like if you were to have this for yourself…

Your audience sees you all the time in print, online and on TV, radio and podcasts…

As a result, they find themselves thinking…

WOW! This person is

EVERYWHERE!

That’s the power of Mass Omnipresence.

It’s not about sharing one story in one dream publication.

It’s about being featured over and over again in all kinds of media, all over the world.

This is exactly what happened to Russian violinist and music coach Dmitry Badiarov. We got him featured on Dutch TV channel RTL, countless high-level podcasts, on NBC, and in the Daily Herald, RAL, and Chicago Tribune.

People started to see him everywhere.

As a result, they began to view him in a different light. “If everyone is talking about this person, they must be worth talking about.” As he describes in the video below, he suddenly found that high-level coaching clients started coming to him:

Despite describing himself as a shy guy who definitely doesn’t want to be famous, he loved this experience.

Because he can still walk down the street without being recognized – his daily life hasn’t changed.

But now he is recognized and rewarded in his professional life as the expert that he is. And you know what else is cool?

You don't have to

niche down!

The first thing every marketing coach tells you is ‘you have to niche down!!!!’

Now we don’t disagree with this – niching down can be a very effective way to laser target an audience.

However, you don’t have to.

As we saw above with Juliet – when we helped her tell her story in the right way, her ideal coaching clients started reaching out to her.

Leigh Campbell – who has since sadly passed away – was told by other PR firms and marketers to ‘tone it down‘.

Don’t wear red lipstick.

Be less intimidating.

Be less… of yourself!

We stick two fingers up to that. If anything…

We amplify the unique things

that make you you…

and build your PR all around that!

In Leigh’s first week with us, she was featured in The Independent, the Daily Mail, and Yahoo.

She told us ‘it has raised my visibility as a menopause expert and psychotherapist hugely and the background support is great’.

US children’s author and LGBTQ advocate Cassie Brooks went from – in her words – being a ‘no-name’ to a leader in her community after we helped her tell her story – as she explains below:

Denise Damijo, Helena Phil, Martin Sharp, Andy Harrington, the list goes on – all different people, in different industries but the same end result – we shone a light on their powerful individual stories and they found that great things happened.

You see, everybody has a powerful story within them. And when we help you uncover yours and tell it to the world, people will reach out and connect.

This is what dozens of our clients experience and you could be next. If you want to stop being the world’s best-kept secret and make a global impact instead, we can help.

At this point you’re probably wondering what your options are and how much it all costs.

I’ll lay that out clearly for you in a moment, but first, a quick word about me…

I'M Luana Ribeira, the founder of Dauntless PR.

Although I have a Portuguese name, I’m actually from Wales.

After suffering a horrible experience being trolled online in 2011 (a story for another day – ask me if you’re curious!), I decided enough was enough. I needed to control what was being said about me.

So, I threw myself headfirst into the world of PR.

Despite having no history or track record in the business, I somehow made connection after connection. Some of those connections are now lifelong friends.

As a result, I found myself being featured in the media on a regular basis – and I was able to take back control.

Some years later, I realized if I could help myself, I could help others too. And that’s when I hired a team of experts with decades of experience and set up Dauntless PR.

We aren’t just here to put another billion in the pockets of the world’s biggest corporations.

It’s our mission to help good, talented people get the visibility and recognition they truly deserve.

If we have a space available and we are able to offer you a spot, we will contact you to arrange a call.

If you’re interested in Media Impact Accelerator, you can enrol right now – however we recognise you may have questions, so you have the option to speak to us first if you like.

If you want more info on either offer, you can contact us directly on Whatsapp by clicking the button below:

When you open the chat, please give a little background about your business and what your goals are.

Or if you’d prefer to book a 1-1 call with us to discuss, you can do that instead
Will I be supported?

One thing that both our VIP and Media Impact Accelerator clients tell us is that they are shocked – in a good way – at how fast we respond and how helpful we are.

And at how they have quickly become part of a friendly community that feels like family.

When you join Dauntless, we treat you like a friend and support you every step of the way.

This is Suzanne Roynon. Suzanne is a Media Impact Accelerator client and has been with us since 2020.

success stories?

Feel free to click over to our success stories page or take a look at our media wall.

Note that the media wall only contains a small percentage of our actual bookings, because many of our clients prefer to go ‘incognito’ and not tell the world they hired a PR agency.

If that’s the case for you, you can trust that your privacy is always safe with us.

Whichever option you take, we look forward to working with you together on the inside!
