Brand Protection PR™ for Your CBD Business
“Building a CBD business takes blood, sweat, and tears, as the saying goes – but do you have reputation protection? ... the 3 main components to manage your reputation and protect your CBD business are:
Build customer loyalty and trust.
Create a reputation-safety action plan.
Figure out what's next.”
- Diane Mulligan, M&C Communications President and Founder, Hemp Industry Daily, August 17, 2020

Are you looking for a strategic public relations partner to help tell your CBD products brand story and grow your business? At M&C Communications, we specialize in Brand Protection PR™: setting your CBD business apart from the crowd and developing a reservoir of trust and goodwill by developing client relationships, proactively managing the media, and building your brand through powerful strategic messaging. Our 3 step process includes: enhancing customer loyalty, employing Insider Media Relations, and creating a resilient brand through opportunity/crisis forecasting.
Make Your CBD Oil, Hemp, or CBD Products Business Bulletproof
Missteps can cost your CBD company money, customers, and reputation. That’s where Brand Protection PR™ can help you build a bulletproof PR strategy so you don’t feel like you're building your business in the wild, wild west of CBD.
M&C Communications will help you build a community of loyal customers who love and use your CBD oil, hemp, hemp oil, or CBD products through strategic messaging. Think of it as building your digital footprint so your business can be found by customers and your expertise is clear to the business media who cover CBD. This is where it’s critical to work with a team that can help navigate the confusing tangle of regulation surrounding the emerging CBD market.
Become a Media Relations Master to Grow Your CBD Brand
Media relations is more than getting your message in the newspaper or on TV. It’s building relationships with the journalists who are covering the CBD industry, positioning you as an innovative, trustworthy thought leader with unique experience and a reputation as a sought-after expert the media will call again and again.
We’ll teach you how to handle tricky interview questions through M&C’s unique Insider Media Relations™ media training. We'll teach you these strategies developed through years of experience as journalists in local markets to network newsrooms.
Tap into M&C’s Insider Media Relations™ experience to feel confident and ready to handle any interview. Learning how to be approachable and transparent when talking about your CBD business and how to steer the conversation when things get challenging helps build trust with your audience and solid relationships with the media.
Conquer Crisis Communications to Build a Sustainable CBD Business
Every business owner can tell you what keeps them up at night: the thought of years of hard work and success destroyed in moments due to a crisis. In the rapidly changing CBD industry, a solid Brand Protection PR™ crisis communications plan should be part of the cost of doing business. You don’t think twice about insuring your business against fire or theft, but what about insuring your reputation? Your reputation is the reason your customers come to you over your competition. Part of M&C’s Brand Protection PR™ process is making sure our clients have a strategy for predicting crises, building a reservoir of trust and goodwill with their audiences, and planning for what to and say (or not!) when the unexpected happens.
CBD companies can also tap into our proprietary Brand Protection™ Tool that helps identify issues on the horizon and develop forward-thinking crisis communication plans to help protect your business. The Brand Protection™ Tool process brings your entire team to the table to brainstorm, understand each department’s role, and craft a unified response to identify business threats.
Our CBD PR crisis communication strategies can help you prepare for the inevitable bumps in the road and manage them before they become roadblocks to your growing CBD business.
