Strategic PR and media relations helps organizations achieve actual business objectives
At First Principles, we know that effective public relations isn’t sending out reams of news releases, hoping one might get noticed by the media.
In fact, a solid media relations plan requires just the opposite approach.
PR is a strategic management tool that builds awareness of your company and its reputation by careful, ongoing targeting of your external audiences and internal stakeholders. A good PR program is like a bank account: You make regular deposits of good will for the day when you want – or need – to make a withdrawal such as when you find yourself in the media spotlight for all the wrong reasons: A crisis.
That’s what we help you do: Use strategic PR to achieve actual business objectives, improving revenue by increasing customer share, mind share and market share. We’ve done this in nearly every business sector.
There are lots of PR firms who’ll churn out news releases for you. That’s not us. Instead, we help you use PR to strategically establish, promote, protect – and sometimes salvage – your business’ reputation. And your reputation is your most important business asset. Why? Because if customers don’t like or trust you, they take their business elsewhere – typically, to your competitors.
Along with helping some of Canada’s largest corporations, we work with many privately-owned businesses and professional partnerships. Independent research has shown repeatedly that companies with a strategic PR program are more profitable, more successful and more valuable to their owners – whether they are shareholders, private investors or families.
