A vital piece of every promotional strategy is public relations, especially when promoting events for a company. Plenty of the time local media outlets tend to target a local community, which means media coverage in local publications for an event will result in the event reaching the right people. However, companies that don’t have the right approach to PR will end up wasting their time without the benefits of positive media coverage. Additionally, there already are plenty of events both locally and globally in most locations, and without strong PR any company’s event will get lost in the crowd. Additionally,... Read More >

PR Lessons from Unions

2016-09-13 by Richard D. Pace

Great PR is often associated with Mad Men of Madison Ave, Silicon Valley wizards, or seasoned warriors on K Street. But that’s oversimplifying things, and underestimating some of the best PR operatives in the country – unions. Long gone are days when unions accomplished their goals by simply picketing outside the employer’s office, or scaring passerby’s with giant inflatable rats. Intimidating unyielding employers with physical violence is also pretty much behind us. That’s because often you can accomplish a ton towards Public Relations campaigns. A great example of true mastery in using PR as a weapon is Health Professionals and... Read More >

Project Apollo, and especially Apollo 11, gave the United States an opportunity to shine like it has rarely been able to do. Not that great things haven’t been accomplished in America over the years, but this was above the mark. It gave the U.S. a chance to show our technological supremacy over the rest of the world and especially rival nations. That was the primary goal of the program when first envisioned by the Kennedy administration in 1961 - it wasn’t so much about conquering space travel, it was about proving our superiority - especially to the “Red Menace.” To...

Building a PR Bridge

[caption id="attachment_82942" align="aligncenter" width="827"] Image courtesy of the state of Minnesota[/caption] When you build a bridge in an area considered to be protected by an act of Congress, it takes another act of Congress to begin the process. But sometimes that’s necessary when the existing one is more than 80-years-old and could fail in the not too distant future. If the new bridge isn’t in place, people would have a very difficult time getting from point A to point B for several years. Even though point A may not be growing as they thought it would or have as many... Read More >

Another survey showed that whether people believed it was real or not, only 40 percent of Americans believe climate change is a serious threat. This is compared to 88 percent of British people who believe the climate is changing.

This makes combating climate change in America a difficult task.... Read More >

As one of the largest banks in the United States, JP Morgan, enjoys its fair share of the limelight. Yet, many believe a desire for more publicity must be the company’s reason behind its recession tracker. The company’s economists recently announced the tracker shows a 36 percent chance of America entering yet another economic recession. Known for its particular love of all things negative and controversial, the media – and the public at large – has spun several stories around this prediction. What many economists know but do not always share is that creating fear about a recession often creates... Read More >
