It is fair to say that public relations can be both complex and overwhelming, and it doesn’t help that there are similar acronyms used to identify a variety of aspects within the industry. Did you know that most people commonly assume that PR means “press release” when in all actuality, it stands for the service of building a positive relationship between the public and your company or “public relations.”

So, if you are one of the many stumped by the four P’s of public relations, here is some information to help you define what they are and the role they play in helping you grow your business.

In a nutshell, public relations is the art of connecting brands with consumers through engaging storytelling. Public Relations or PR professionals typically deploy a variety of tools, one of which is the press release, to pitch a story idea to media contacts that are then turned into publicity for their clients.

Public Relations

Few people you speak to can explain what a public relations professional does. The answer is simple; they build relationships with reporters and media outlets with the hopes of garnering ‘earned’ media coverage for their clients. So, if you think about it, our sole purpose is to help you engage with your customers while strengthening your brand through third-party endorsements.

Press Release

A press release is a short, compelling news story written by public relations professionals to announce news or company information. A press release provides essential information (who, what, when, where, why, and how) to help journalists quickly and easily prepare their own story. The best press releases are crafted to pique the interest of a journalist or publication while enticing the individual to reach out for more in-depth information that only you can provide.

Pitch

To effectively pitch a story idea requires a lot of research, creative thinking, and persuasive communication skills. I know your asking, isn’t the press release my pitch? The answer is no. The pitch is your only chance to persuade a journalist to give your story idea a second look or an opportunity to grow into a story, and journalists are known to receive hundreds of pitches a day.

Sometimes, a pitch can take place via email, phone call, or on social media, and each pitch should be personalized and geared towards the individual reporter you are trying to attract.

Publicity

Once a press release is written and pitched to the desired media contacts, it’s finally time for you and your company to be quoted in news outlets across the globe. Media coverage is a blessing for any size company – as your name gets mentioned, so will your sales.

For most companies, generating positive publicity or media coverage is 3X more valuable than paid advertising, so what are you waiting for?

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Jul 10, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 10, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 10, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
