Our Crisis Communication Team's Approach

Create a Crisis Communications Plan

When you run a business, the question isn’t if your products or services will be attacked, but when.

When a crisis occurs, you must be prepared to respond. Every moment that passes jeopardizes your ability to transform a negative situation into an opportunity. Carter & Co. Communications equips your business with the tools necessary to handle anything that comes your way.

We work closely with our clients to create a strategic crisis management plan, assessing risk factors and training staff in how to react to potential adverse scenarios. We anticipate possible crisis situations and work to protect our clients’ interests, preventing unfavorable media coverage before it ever happens.

Managing the Crisis According to the Crisis Plan

When disaster does strike, Carter & Co. Communications—one of California’s best business, political, and individual crisis and reputation management firms—activates our team for initial response according to the crisis preparation plan. We are always ready to help you and your business navigate through the trenches, reducing the impact of negative opinions and media coverage by delivering a transparent message that repairs and restores your reputation.

Whether there has been a recall on a product or litigation has been brought forth by a former employee or customer, Carter & Co. Communications is here to ensure that your perspective is conveyed in an optimum way.

Continuing Reputation Management

While averting major disasters is a priority, it’s also imperative to address the mini-crisis situations that occur day-to-day.

More than ever, consumers rely on online media when making a decision about whether to purchase a product or service. Carter & Co. Communications realizes how powerful online media is in making or breaking a company’s reputation. Even just one bad review can turn dozens of potential customers and clients away from your business.

While it may be impossible to remove some negative comments, Carter & Co. Communications works to make the positive voices louder. We monitor online activity and are prepared to respond to adverse comments at all times. Using social media platforms, we work to establish a strong online presence and promote positive information about your business.

Our suite of crisis planning services includes:

violence in the workplace prevention  ·  active threat training  ·  risk assessments  ·  crisis simulations  ·  business continuity planning

When a crisis situation arises, you need a professional and effective crisis response team on your side with a plan in hand.
