PR Surveys and Earned Media

Turning Stats into Stories



Market research is an incredibly powerful tool for gathering consumer insight – discovering more about our customers – who they are, what they like, where they buy, why they buy.

But PR surveys are different.

Research carried out for PR purposes is specifically designed to create newsworthy stories and content that help to increase brand awareness and generate positive earned media exposure.

PR surveys and survey-led news stories not only help brands engage and interact with their own customer base, but they add authority to brand messaging and can help you reach a much wider audience.


Why our PR surveys are unique.

When working with a client on a PR survey campaign, we have access to our own news team, who write for tier one publications every day. We use their expertize to explore topics with “talk value” – subjects that are likely to strike a chord with publishers and their audience. We then brainstorm ideas and write survey questions around a theme that is relevant to the brand commissioning the research.

Our OnePoll research team drafts and hosts the survey, collects the responses and provides clients with the results. The response data always includes age, gender and regional breakdowns. We can target any demographic required.


Guaranteed media coverage.

News is at the very core of our business. We don’t write press releases – we write page-ready news stories. 

Our team of experienced journalists write all of our clients’ news stories, and we guarantee coverage every time.

Each PR survey story is attributed to the client’s own brand name with relevant and insightful client quotes included in the news copy.

Our design team also create visual content to illustrate the key research findings and to support the news story.
