How Corporate PR can Help Your Organisation

Public relations is about building a strong, positive reputation in the public’s mind through consistent, strategic good news in targeted outlets and publications.

By creating a constant flow of good news, businesses are able to grow their reputation and build awareness in one fell swoop. The benefits of great PR are massive, including:

  • generating brand awareness so that current and potential customers gain a deep understanding of your company’s products and services and are more likely to buy as a result
  • creating a positive image of the company, helping the brand be seen as an honest, approachable, and reliable business that can be trusted to do the right thing
  • position the company as the leading experts in the industry
  • building good customer relationships that will result in long-term loyalty with all customers as well as all suppliers and other companies
  • making the company appear a credible and professional organisation
  • boosting sales and making the business more profitable and sustainable.

Good corporate public relations is about learning to think from the perspective of a journalist. A journalist is interested in articles, news and stories that their readers, listeners, and viewers would enjoy or benefit from.

It’s about giving the media ‘newsworthy’ information with an interesting angle. If your message is something that you would normally use an advertisement to say, then this is not newsworthy in itself. Journalists are being called and emailed by people asking to tell their story every day. An estimate given by some journalists is that they often receive over 50 emails like this each day, not to mention the phone calls. In order to make your story heard, businesses can get a PR agency to help them pitch to the journalist.

Pure Public Relations offers media relations, issues management and communication services for businesses, and has a reputation for securing excellent coverage for topics that are not obviously newsworthy and an impressive track record for issues management.

Maintaining a Company’s Reputation at all Times

It is important to safeguard the reputation of a company by taking a strategic and considered approach to all communications, and ensuring that the PR approach is focused on supporting this. For example, not all publicity is good publicity!

Curating a strong reputation on a daily basis, means that when a crisis or issue occurs, you have a strong foundation to work with.

The PR textbooks would tell you that in a crisis, issues management 101 would be to put together a short, factual statement that doesn’t contain much emotion and is as short as possible. They say that the idea is to give away as little information as possible and repeat the same phrase over and over again.

Pure Public Relations take a different approach. We ask: ‘is this story going to be written regardless of our assistance?’ If the answer is yes, then it’s much better if we can be as helpful as possible. If we can give as much accurate, helpful information, it’s far better for our clients than keeping their lips tightly sealed.

The aim is always to build a positive image of your company and brand that is maintained in people’s minds. In a competitive market filled with potential crises around every corner, this kind of corporate PR knowledge will give you the crucial edge and is something you can’t afford to ignore. Read Less

Pure Public Relations cared and understood the issue - which was hugely important. They invested in our vision and mission, and listened to our restraints and worked within those. I could not recommend them more highly for both NFP and other organisations. I look forward to continuing to work with them.

Phoebe is an excellent, industrious and organised PR consultant. Phoebe has been instrumental in garnering PR for the toy and game expo since inception. For the last years Phoebe has successfully attracted the Today Show weather crosses to the Expo. Phoebe is energetic and committed and a great asset to any organisation seeking to improve their PR. In fact engaging Phoebe is just plain Good Business!

Steve Rojan-Jones

co-convenor of the Toy and Game Expo

We engaged Pure Public Relations to help get some media exposure for our early stage startup. The results speak for themselves, after receiving national media exposure in Fairfax papers along with a number of other credible media outlets that brought targeted traffic to our website, kick-started membership signups, and filled our pipeline with leads. Phoebe Netto and her team have been a real asset!

Chris Bates

Wellone Pty Ltd

Not long after engaging them we had to undertake an intensive national advocacy and public relations campaign to successfully see through amendments to federal legislation that had the potential if not addressed to disrupt our whole industry. Pure Public Relations worked above and beyond on this campaign with us, sometimes dealing with crisis management on particular contested issues and addressing issues early and late in the day and in different time zones like they were a dedicated part of our team. We achieved an incredible outcome for a small organisation as a result. This is how we see Pure PR now, they are part of our team, and a critical part that we rely on and which we really value.

Ben Kearney

CEO, ALNA

We cannot thank Phoebe and her amazing team enough for all their efforts and for giving our business direction. I would not hesitate to recommend Pure Public Relations to any business wanting to improve and grow their business.
