Americover: Using PR For A New Product Launch

In the summer of 2022, our client, a US-based plastic sheeting manufacturer, was getting ready to launch a new mold vapor barrier product. They enlisted KWSM’s PR services to help drive awareness about the launch and leverage this innovative product to set them apart from competitors.

Our Strategy

We wrote a comprehensive press release that highlighted the product’s innovative mold prevention technology, educated the audience on the prevalence of mold within homes and why prevention is so important, and provided credibility by showcasing our client’s 25 years of experience providing their customers with high-quality products and personalized service.

Press Release Distribution

Once the release was written and approved by our client, it was time to get eyes on it. We sent it directly to a list of media contacts that we sourced, including relevant magazines, bloggers, trade publications, and influential personalities in the home and commercial building industries.
