The key to any successful PR campaign revolves around creating interest in your company – both with your customers and with the media. In this article, we reveal tips for putting your business in the spotlight.
There’s a famous saying that goes like this, “If the circus is coming to town and you paint a sign saying ‘Circus Coming to the Fairground Saturday,’ that’s advertising. If you put the sign on the back of an elephant and walk him into town, that’s promotion. If the elephant walks through the mayor’s flowerbed, that’s publicity. If you can get the mayor to laugh about it, that’s public relations. And if you planned the elephant’s walk, that’s marketing.”
While this may seem like just a cute anecdote, there is an important lesson to be learned from it: A well-timed public relations (PR) campaign can increase your businesses’ chances of reaching your target market with exactly what they want to hear, when they are ready to hear it.
The art of building a successful PR campaign revolves around creating strong relationships with the media and your customers, planning special events and building an image – elements that when combined gain publicity, or “buzz,” for your company. You need not spend thousands of dollars creating buzz about your company, however. Innovative methods, such as identifying a media niche, creating a theme, and using trade shows and celebrity spokespersons are all publicity-generating vehicles for budget-minded businesses.
