Frequently Asked Questions
Any organisation or business can use PR services.
Given the rapid change in communication methods, many organisations do not have the resources to develop a communication strategy and undertake tasks in-house. However, because they understand the value of effective business communication, they seek PR support.
Engaging those who are interested in your organisation or business and effectively communicating with them, has been shown to build relationships and help you achieve your business objectives. Public relations research, analysis, planning and communication works to improve relationships with your key stakeholders.
One example is the work we did with the Rural Housing Network (RHN) (since renamed to BeyondHousing). RHN's strategic plan clearly articulated the organisation's business objectives and required a communication strategy to support its delivery.
By consulting with clients, staff, support agencies, funding bodies and real estate agents it became clear where RHN needed to focus its communications efforts. The resulting plan laid out tactics for developing relationships with key stakeholders, including regional media.
It also contained goals and measurements so that the effectiveness of the strategy could be assessed.
PR focuses on building relationships with an organisation’s stakeholders through effective communication.
Marketing is concerned with getting products and services to market. In many cases, marketing and public relations practitioners work side-by-side to help achieve an organisation’s business objectives.
