Public relations is a smart and precise form of communicating and can be used as a tool to advocate a proposition, a person or a product, increase awareness, change perceptions, accentuate the positives, manage the negatives and plan for the future – all while informing and educating your key audiences. News releases, background features, interviews, broker/analyst briefings, media briefings, road shows, presentations, newsletters, websites, and product launches are all effective ways of engaging and attracting specific audiences. To ignore the importance of the PR function in marketing is to ignore the stakeholders who are responsible for your company’s positioning in the marketplace.
By developing tailored key messages that highlight your company’s points of difference and selecting strategies and tactics that effectively make your company’s key messages ring true, your company will be noticed and watched in the marketplace.
