The guiding principle of public relations often revolves around the use and importance of news and content, to put forth a message about several things-- an organization, an endeavour, a business, etc. Over the years, PR has taken a lot of faces depending on what medium of communication was the most powerful at the given time.
Last year, we learnt the importance of positive messaging more than anything. 2020 shifted the public relations landscape in ways no one ever would have predicted. Hence, keeping everything in mind there are so many ways PR is going to change the industry, some of them are:
Years back you would hear a lot of people go, “content is king”. The primary idea behind this was to create quality content, and the world would beat a path to your door. Moreover, the value of the advice plummeted once all of them began creating content.
Nowadays, we have both a new queen and king taking the shots. Another thing that should be taken into consideration when developing content or strategy is relevance. It should be one of the top priorities when it comes to blending PR and SEO together to “own” specific terms, topics, and knowledge in the industry.
Something new is not necessarily better, though there’s always a possibility. For instance, take clubhouse. It is a drop-in-audio-based community that is a great platform for experts to share their points of view on topics. It is both educational and fun. Although for some brands, Clubhouse won’t make sense. Moreover, the existing go-to channels are apt to yield better results. On some of the leading social media platforms, you are more likely to find someone already seeking to buy or do the legwork in advance of a near-future purchase.
Keeping in mind the current environment, brands are at risk of unintentionally upsetting wide swaths of the populace which will end in a lot of bad press. It is always vital to clean up the mess and think of a strategy way ahead of time. Proactively surround the brand with positive and fun messaging. A committed and consistent reputation management can work beautifully for the organization or the brand.
If you maintain a positive position then people will be disinclined to believe something bad that popped up in the news. Any future PR gaffe will be considered just a blip and nothing more than that.
All of us are optimistic about the PR 2021 vision and the future of the public relations industry. However, it can become even better when it starts adapting to change and willingly embrace new days of working.
