PR for Who? PR for You…and You…and You…
When people listen or read the words “public relations,” I have observed their thoughts and expressions to be “the relations you have with the public.” Now, they’re on the right track, however many may have the sense that public relations are just for those who are on television, rich and famous, or have very interesting lives that everyone wants to know about.
WRONG! Public relations can be for you…yeah you, in front of the screen, even your buddy who’s sitting right next to you too! You don’t have to be famous to be involved in public relations. You don’t have to be rich or show up on television. All you have to do is be someone with an interest in knowing what image you want the public to have of a specific person, brand, service, or product.
PR is not all about people with money, PR is about caring what others think of you, what others say about you, but most importantly, what others KNOW about you. Therefore, PR can be for almost everyone and that my friend can be you!
