Public Relations

It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.


Public relations (PR) is a tool you can use to communicate and build relationships with people and organizations that are important to your success. At its highest level, PR involves managing relationships and communications with people and organizations with which you have a relationship. At a more practical level, public relations offer a cost-effective tool for you to communicate with your target market. Most PR activities use local news type media, but you need to think in terms of target audiences and what needs to be said.

This goes beyond “just the facts” which are very important, of course, but so is honesty, transparency and accountability. Then mix it with a vibrant, positive message that brings the best possible light to frame your statement.
