Many businesses still have trouble understanding exactly what Public Relations (PR) is and how it can benefit their business.
If someone has never had any experience of PR it can be difficult to explain.
This video and the following article provide a great way to help you understand and explain PR.
Public Relations is all about effective communication whether it’s between an organisation and its target audience or between a person and the people they want to influence.
Public relations programs enhance the internal and external understanding of a company’s strategies, objectives and achievements. They build a positive public image and reputation.
Every business has a story to tell which will interest the media. The role of the PR professional is to see an organisation through the eyes of the media and to provide the media with facts they can use at the right time. Anything from a speech to a new product can be newsworthy if it’s expertly handled. However, if a story has absolutely no news value, it won’t be released to the media.
Public relations practitioners are pivotal to the communication process between an organisation and its publics (clients, potential clients, staff, media etc). They must ensure any form of communication is clear, honest and unambiguous so the messages are easily understood.
PR is vital to building your business, as it will help you to establish credibility, enhance your reputation and assist in growing sales.
A PR strategy needs to have a long-term view to achieve your business’ objectives, develop meaningful relationships with target publics and to build your reputation.
