Zombies and Fake Red-Heads, Meet the Face of Innovative Public Relations

Speaking Channel TV’s Public Relations talk-show Inside Communications with Mike Bako has released its latest interview with Sal Cataldi, President and Creative Director of Cataldi Public Relations. Mr. Cataldi sat down with host Mike Bako to discuss his unique and innovative approach. Cataldi Public Relations, whose wide arraignment of work includes working with HBO, Hearst Publishing, and Newman’s Own.
Throughout the interview, Mr. Cataldi discusses how his firm Cataldi PR turns limited resources into unexpected campaigns, such as the Monster Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge for AMC ‘s Monsterfest. Mr. Cataldi explains that the perfect campaign also needs perfect timing: the Monster Walk was strategically scheduled for Thursday morning before Halloween, to get as coverage as possible through morning shows and news traffic cameras.
Previously, Mr. Cataldi worked with alcoholic beverage company Alize Red Passions to create “Operation Redhead”. Taking advantage of the ‘red-hot’ redhead trend, Mr. Cataldi explains how his PR firm took on the mission of creating as many new redheads as possible in a single day. The campaign was a huge success, reaching over 350 broadcast and print outlets, and lead the firm to win a Guerilla Marketer of the Year award.
“I think you really do have to think outside of the box,” said Mr. Cataldi. “Try to impress the jaded media person who has seen it all and done it all.”
