These days consumers are overwhelmed with a choice of brands and businesses to suit their needs so creating a strong presence through PR is crucial.
But in order to do this and get the most out of PR activity it’s important to be consistent in your efforts.
Creating a long-term PR plan that involves consistent activity and messaging is what will help to build strong brand identity as well as developing trust with your audience and with journalists.
Overtime, the more your business is mentioned, the more likely you will be seen as a credible and reliable brand.
Think about PR like building blocks, each element builds on top of another in order to really be beneficial and reach its potential. The world of digital and social media moves quickly and having too many gaps within your activity will mean that your target audience is likely to forget about you.
