Congratulations! Public Relations is celebrating its second decade in online marketing. Within these few years, online PR has taken the market by storm with the agenda of mass marketing.
In Forbes Marketing 2017, the data states, “A proper PR generates 63% more leads and traffic for a website than any regular post. Small companies are growing big in a short span of time and are makinga strong brand image.”
It is a huge encouragement for those who have just set their foot in the world of internet for PR. However, people who were already into it are falling behind in this race of establishing digital public relations.
“We have to check the previous profile and mark all areas of downfall. After that, we need to polish up the entire profile and present it in a new way,” commented a Public Relations professional.
Forbes took account of these issues, and they came up with five new practices surrounding this concern. The marketer stated, “A budding business cannot play the game of ‘waiting.’ A slow process reduces the winning potential by a significant percentage.”
In accordance to this, the five new practices are expected to make a revolutionary impact. Firstly, Forbes has recommended to ‘Over manage the details.’ They comprehended this strategy from Walt Disney, who has managed to bag a 100% referral business since day one.
To run successfully in the ever-changing world of PR, it calls for attention to detail and agility- continuing on this note, the company well shifted to the second point and suggested the practice as ‘Think outside the Template.’ 77.3% of small businesses have encouraged PR pros to improve their research for understanding media outlets better before pitching their service.
The next two points completely pondered around the literal meaning of online Public Relations, to get the attention of the public in mass. Forbes suggested every professional looking in this section to emphasise on what public is demanding.
“PR is all about knowing the art of communication that is going to help in building more creative strategy. As per our research, strategic communication builds 70% of a company’s online backbone.”
Finally, Forbes suggested playing the cards on Social Media. Social media is taking the world of advertisement by rage. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube….. These are the names that we hear public chanting.
Over the years, social media marketing is the most important part of a successful digital PR. A lion share of 81% of Public Relations depends on social media presentation.
The new practices introduced by Forbes are expected to take the PR progress of small businesses from 63% to at least 78% by 2018.
