WHY YOU NEED PR
1. PR is more valuable than advertising.
The reason why is simple: genuine editorial can’t be bought. The key component to PR is making media tell your story for you – which, if done well, strongly influences the public to visit/purchase your product.
2. You need to build brand recognition.
Which doesn’t happen overnight. Media visibility grows and amplifies over time, and not just by one medium. Meaning: constantly being placed on a TV news segment is only part of the equation. Events, social media, print features, communication with local influencers, all of these components are crucial to building your brand each layer is just as important.
3. PR is an investment in your future.
The key to having an effective voice in this “always on” world of digital communications is repetition. Read: you need to repeat your message over and over, often to the same mediums. While human instinct is to expect instant gratification, PR doesn’t work with the snap of a finger. It’s important to trust that, over time, PR really is working for you and improving your brand, reputation, and sales in the long-run.
4. PR promotes credibility and influence.
PR improves credibility, expertise, and leadership in your respective field. The more you’re talked about and noticed by media and important influencers whose opinions are trusted in the community, the more credible and trusted your brand will become.
5. PR lets you take control.
Owning and operating a business is already a full-time job and a half. It’s time-consuming. It’s exhausting. You wear about a million hats. Hiring a PR professional or agency allows you to focus on the backbones of business: product, sales, and customer service. Let the PR people handle your brand, reputation, promotion, and getting the word out there.
