Everyone has a story to tell. It’s how the story is marketed that makes an impact. Public relations is story telling. It’s a powerful and cost effective method of communicating and fostering relationships with an organization’s key audiences to tell that story. When done right, public relations not only builds and protects a company’s brand, but can influence the growth and profitability of the organization.
