For small business public relations has a particularly obvious role. These are the very companies that are greatly dependent on generating awareness, credibility and trust if customers or investors are to be convinced to do business with them. Of course, such firms have many different marketing routes to choose from, so why should they contact a PR agency?
The truth is that PR is the most cost-effective of all of the marketing methods out there for smaller businesses, catering for almost every need. It’s easy to imagine that advertising, social media or content marketing will get your small firm the results that it deserves, but there’s one crucial difference between all of those and PR: the party that is doing the communicating.
While self-promotion has its undoubted value, it just doesn’t pack the authoritative power that coverage from a well-respected third party does. Whether such a party is a journalist or an influential PR industry figure, they will have credibility that they pass on with each message that they communicate. Such messages are very much word-of-mouth marketing, of the kind that has been so effective for generations at building credibility and trust for the subject.
Such public relations are even more effective for your small company, however, when they are performed in conjunction with the other marketing methods mentioned above.
