What is public relations?
Public relations is a strategic communication process companies, individuals, and organisations use to build mutually beneficial relationships with the public.
Before you invest your resources in public relations services, it’s imperative that you have a rough idea of what PR is all about. It’s the process of creating and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships between a brand and its publics. The term publics here refers to the media, key stakeholders, social media influencers, and, most importantly, your customers.
Contrary to what most people believe, public relations is not all about getting good press. It’s a strategy that ensures you have more control of your brand story and your business maintains a positive image.
There are plenty of benefits your brand can get from engaging in public relations. Your business will enjoy more brand awareness. It’s also a marketing strategy that ensures your message reaches your clients at the right time and place.
Partnering with a reputable public relations agency such as MassCitizen guarantees highly effective campaigns. Our agency isn’t only skilled in public relations, but we have a close connection with award-winning journalists, bloggers, and influencers in Canada. We can utilize these connections to get your brand name out there and increase leads.
Public relations strategy
The success of a PR campaign heavily depends on the formulated strategy. MassCitizen engages in thorough audience research so that we can know which campaign will be more effective. Our strategy also uses data and analysis to create compelling content. We will evaluate your competition and create a PR campaign that stands out and meets your objectives.
As a business owner, we understand that you may not have time to maintain media relations. But when you partner with us, we can use our vast network of journalists to ensure the media has a positive reputation for your brand. The media plays a crucial role in how the community perceives you. It’s, therefore, vital to have them on your side.
Do you plan on launching a new product, service, or brand? Press launches can provide you with sufficient coverage to reach many potential clients. When you choose us as your public relations firm, we will invite journalists from reputable media houses who will publicize the launch to thousands of people.
Not to be confused with press launches, a junket is more of a promotional event for films. After consultation, MassCitizen can determine if your business can benefit from a press junket. If so, we will schedule it and invite members of the fourth estate to give your event adequate coverage. This can really help with your brand awareness.
Modes of marketing have significantly changed in the past few decades. This is why publicity stunts have become so popular. These are unusual events that attract the attention of the public. MassCitizen, using our public relations skills, we can choreograph a well-orchestrated publicity stunt that will get your brand the attention it deserves without affecting its perception.
