Need of a long-term approach to PR
Over the years, our PR agency has received many calls from businesses looking for a one-off media release to be written and distributed on their behalf. This ‘quick fix’ or ‘as needed’ approach to PR is short-sighted and may not produce the best results for your business or project. Here are four reasons why a long-term approach to PR can help you achieve the continuing and meaningful results you need in order to take your business to the next level.
Although reading a positive article about an organisation you had never heard of may make you think of it favourably, this impression will likely last a few days. We absorb such an incredible amount of information; it is impossible to remember everything we read for the first time. It is only when we start seeing and hearing about an organisation over and over again, through various platforms, that we begin forming a long lasting opinion. Repetition is key. In order to build your profile as the expert in your industry or the best product in the market, you need the sort of repetition that can only be found in a sustained approach to public relations.
So if you’ve been tempted to use PR to create short bursts of activity for your business, it’s time to re-think your strategy. Intelligent, strategic PR planning will deliver meaningful and long-term results with real bottom line impact.
