  • Your story is your ticket – it will get you into people’s hearts and minds; a great story can motivate make a person go from passive to participant. Invest in media training; rehearse and prepare.
  • Make sure all messages are aligned with your brand.Never underestimate the personal PR power of happiness.
  • PR’s biggest advantage over marketing and advertising is the seemingly independent third-party recognition and endorsement it provides—an incredible asset in a very crowded, confused world.
  • A company that knows itself, what it can and can’t do, can capitalize on its strengths and see competitive advantages where others might see weaknesses.
  • Recognizing problems and then solving them offers fantastic opportunities for very powerful PR campaigns, as does taking advantages of your competitions’ weaknesses.
  • Be “widely selective” — Engage people on multiple platforms in unique ways without overdoing it.
  • Stay relevant: Don’t post content just for the sake of posting content, otherwise people begin to ignore it or delete it.
  • Don’t squander existing equity. Logos and other design features, along with mottos, tag lines, and mission statements are your stock and have value.

And, I define great public relations as:

  • Helping to make the impersonal personal.
  • Bridging divides.
  • Creating excitement and builds equity for businesses, personalities, politicians, and others.
  • Managing crises and catastrophes.
  • and, Telling stories, having conversations, and making impressions.
