Social media Updates

All of these things create positive brand recognition and awareness, increasing the volume of your business.

So how do you make this happen? Press releases, right?

Pitching a story to media may seem like an easy task, but it’s garnering coverage that’s the hard part. It’s funny, being in the public relations industry, we always hear, “Oh yeah, we do our own press releases and distribute them to our lists.” Well, guys, times have changed. It’s not all about press releases any more.

Public Relations FAQs

Small business owners who decide to handle their own PR typically focus on advertising, since it is more familiar. Being more affordable than advertising, PR is also more effective at raising awareness for a company. While advertising focuses on selling directly to customers, PR gains media coverage, improves public perception and endorsements. This way, public relations can gain a business credibility.

A Major Trend to Anticipate in 2017: Shifting Focus from Company Websites to Social Network Pages

January 17th, 2017 Posted by Blog, Public Relations, Social Media, Social Media Tips No Comment yet
