PUBLIC RELATIONS (PR) CAN BE CONFUSING – LET KRA COMMUNICATIONS MAKE IT SIMPLE
Public relations is not free advertising
It is a time consuming and labor intensive effort. It'll mean realistically thinking and evaluating 'what is truly news worthy' concerning your business. If your business is able to do this, PR may help it look more influential, successful, and more important than it may otherwise be.
Public relations works through intermediaries
Since it’s often compared to advertising, PR might just be the least understood of all marketing tools. The basis of PR includes using intermediaries to communicate with and influence your audience. Those intermediaries may be industry spokespersons, investors, trend setters, customers, employees, and even the electronic and print media. Typically, your business has very little control over those influencers, or intermediaries, which can make understanding public relations so difficult.
Public relations is not one size fits all
You won't just get to create your organization's messages, match them with a supporting graphic, then place them where and how you want your audience to read them. In order to get individuals to hear you, you must persuade many important influencers that your business, its services or products are worth their time to consider. You must have your act together.
Public relations build credibility
Public relations can boost an organization's credibility because it operates through numerous trusted intermediaries. Also, those intermediaries communicate to a certain audience which looks to them to filter out all nonsense. If messages are chosen to be communicated, they'll gain credibility through that of the intermediaries.
Public relations must be precise
With advertising, it's possible to calculate the responses and audience impact which you have. It is similar to a controlled experiment which is being done repeatedly. Public relations however is less predictable due to you having be sure the intermediary fully understands your messages and targeted objectives, and can clearly relay them in his or her messages. It means cautiously aligning them with an intermediary's messages. It'll mean knowing his needs and your audience's needs and where your business and its messages fit within that environment.
Public relations is based on relationships
Great public relations means setting up and maintaining relationships with many important influencers, their audiences, and being aware of how your business may become an excellent data source.
Public relations is opportunistic
Your public relations communications with influencers do not always need to be about your business. Offering accessibility to your consumers in order for the influencer to see how they're solving issues using your organization's services and products is a vital method of offering more information.
