The key ingredients to PR
Many of us have this theory that Public Relations is all about being a press releases factory. In fact, Public Relations is all about structures and systems that can help to nail the job and provide an added value to the client.
Simple and straightforward, Public Relations is the core value for every client’s success and brand awareness in the market.
To create a PR plan that is relevant and insightful to your client, you first need to love your profession, be passionate, creative, proactive, and think outside the box.
PR is similar to baking a delicious cake, or cooking a scrumptious meal – you need to have all the right ingredients, in the right quantity, at the right time – with the right spirit and passion.
In order to have a successful outcome in the field of PR, one must source the correct ingredients for the PR mix. So, what are these ingredients? In-depth research, knowing your Client, market knowledge, knowing the client’s business objectives, key messages, and future outlook.
Sourcing the right key target media relevant to the client, overcoming challenges and most importantly, adding value to the client’s business is essential for a successful strategy.
Last but not least, timing is key! No matter how important or well reputed the brand is, if you do not seize the right opportunities, the results yielded will be ineffective.
In conclusion, to succeed with your strategic plans for your clients, you must be well prepared with all the right resources and tools – with a creative mind to steer the campaign in the right direction. In order to deliver the best to your client and to yourself as a PR practitioner, you must be on top of everything and ten steps ahead – proactive as opposed to reactive.
