What Does the Public Relations Client REALLY Want, and Why?
It's not unusual for clients of service providers to insist that their budget dollars be quickly applied to a variety of flashy tactics. Yet, when pressed, many acknowledge that what they REALLY want for their money is visible, end-game change.
This is especially true in public relations where clients often second-guess careful plans for achieving that end-game change by insisting on premature use of tactics like news releases, talk-show appearances and sports sponsorships.
But obviously, flashy tactics alone will not satisfy those clients once they start looking for a return on their public relations investment. Because it is then that it becomes clear, sometimes painfully, that their goal MUST be the kind of change in the behaviors of key stakeholders that lead directly to achieving their business objectives. Thus, it is quality planning, and the degree of behavioral change it produces, that eventually captures client attention, not tactics.
These days, with public relations budgets always in mortal danger, tactical chats between a client CEO and public relations counsel probably sound like this: "Do something about those activists chaining themselves to our plant gate and yelling that our emissions go into the river. It's costing us big money each day that plant is shut down."
Or, "How are we going to calm down those Garden Club members down in the lobby waving around those cockamamie newspaper reports and talking to the TV cameras about the additives we use? Where'd that reporter get those numbers, anyway? It's costing us sales!"
Or, "Please people, what are you doing to encourage a favorable Town Council vote on our petition for that new highway off-ramp?"
What's common to each of those rants? The CEO is asking his public relations people to modify somebody's behavior. He doesn't want to talk tactics, or even strategies. He wants those activists off his property, he wants those print and broadcast reporters to do a fairer job of reporting on his production methods (hopefully getting the Garden Clubbers off his back), and he wants a real effort made to move public opinion in a way that encourages local officials to approve that badly needed vehicle ramp.
Modify somebody's behavior, that's his goal, and that's the job of the public relations agency and its client's corporate professionals. Fortunately, the key to a successful effort is the fact that people really DO act on their perception of the facts. In so doing, and in a cumulative way, they form the very public opinion that those practitioners must now inform.
So, what is their strategy? In short, to reach those perceptions with the facts as they know them. Hopefully, the messages they use will be clear and persuasive, and will change negative or inaccurate perceptions, then alter behaviors in the client company's direction.
Using the three examples above, when the activists become satisfied with explanations of the company's new, public commitment to correct their emission problems, the protesters can be expected to leave the plant gates.
Editorial board meetings with local newspapers and television stations will begin to bear fruit with more balanced reportage of the company's efforts to meet emission standards which, in turn, will reduce negative public opinion.
And, while the agency's briefing sessions with town council staff will do little to hasten a formal vote, a targeted communications effort is likely to lead to a community opinion poll showing positive movement in public, then official sentiment about the new highway off-ramp.
In the end, a sound public relations strategy combined with effective tactics leads directly to the bottom line - perceptions altered; behaviors modified; client satisfied.

Just What Kind of PR Matters to You?
Parties, videos, booklets and column plugs?Or public relations that does something positive and directly about those important outside audiences of yours whose behaviors most affect your operation?How happy are you -- as a business, non-profit or association manager -- when you see your PR folks futzing around with special events, brochures, press releases and TV talk show mentions?Especially at a time when you probably need to create the kind of key stakeholder behavior change that leads directly to achieving your managerial objectives?What it comes down to is this: are you simply looking for publicity, or do you want public relations that really CAN change individual perception and lead to equally changed stakeholder behaviors that help you get your PR money's worth?If that sounds more like it, here's the roadmap for you: people act on their own perception of the facts before them, which leads to predictable behaviors about which something can be done. When we create, change or reinforce that opinion by reaching, persuading and moving-to-desired- action the very people whose behaviors affect the organization the most, the public relations mission is accomplished.
Press Release, An Alternative For Paid Advertisement. Step 1
What's a press release? This is generally a one page story about your business, your product/service or an event happening related to your business that is about to, or recently occurred. These publicity stories are generally "shot gunned" to newspapers, radio, television and the trade publications.

PR Secrets for Small Business
Most small businesses do little to no public relations (PR) to promote their businesses. The reasons are fairly common.
How To Write More Powerfully For PR, Offline And Online
Years ago when my Dad owned a group of local newspapers I spent my school and college vacations working in the editorial office. We used to amuse ourselves over our sandwiches at lunchtime looking through and trashing the endless press releases that would arrive in the mail each day, all beautifully produced with glossy photographs (this was in pre-internet days).
A New Idea For Venture Capitalists
Obviously, it hurts when a promising business project you backed financially goes down the tube.But while you point to many possible causes, seldom do you attribute the wreckage to a lack of effective communications that might have modified the behavior of sales prospects in a positive way, thus averting a money-losing shutdown.
PR Where it Matters Most
What's more crucial to the success of a business, non-profit or association than its most important outside audiences and stakeholders?Nothing.Those stakeholder behaviors directly impact virtually every management and operating activity of the organization.
