Benefits of Outsourcing UK Public Relations
While many recognise the benefits of PR and the results it can achieve for your business, some feel unsure whether to attempt in-house Public Relations or outsource to a specialist. Here are some factors to consider.
What Are Your Business Goals?
Any business strategy, including PR, should be planned and implemented around your objectives and the direction you want to take your brand. Is this something you can easily achieve without help or specialist knowledge? How much time do you have to consistently work towards this? Choosing to use a PR agency with specialist know-how will ensure your strategies are as efficient as possible while increasing your return on investment.
Are You A Public Relations Specialist?
Putting together an expert PR team for your business takes time and a significant investment. Public Relations companies come with a ready-made team of PR and marketing experts and can act as an extension of your own team. Having PR as their core service ensures they deliver the very best campaigns which are further enhanced if they’re experts within your sector. For example, some offer top UK hotel, food, drink or restaurant Public Relations as specialist services. This means they provide value specifically to businesses like yours and can even provide your teams with expert training such as handling negative press.
Do You Have Industry Contacts?
One of the best parts about outsourcing Public Relations is the level of media and sector specific connections they have which would be difficult to achieve in-house. Public Relations agencies take the time to build up long-term relationships with key figures in the media and food and drink scene, opening doors which would take much time and effort for a company to open themselves. This includes well-nurtured relations with journalists, editors, restaurants, chefs, writers, TV producers, publishers and online social influencers. This calibre of contacts will help to raise the credibility of your brand while providing maximum reach to your target audiences.
Do You Have Time To Measure Results?
The best PR tactics don’t just involve planning and implementing strategies well. Analysing and measuring results is vital to see if your strategies are working and to adapt them to maximise success. This is something which requires knowledge, time and skill. Such analysis will help you to gain a deeper understanding of your target audience’s behaviour, form actionable points about the next steps and know whether your investments are achieving an impressive return.
Finding the Best Agency for Your Business
When choosing the right company to work with, there are a number of qualities to look for to find the best services.
Experienced PR companies will have nurtured relationships with the media and influential figures, building up a strong database of connections to help your business and brand.
A high-quality database will:
• get your stories to influential sources
• allow for advanced engagement with your target market through the readership of media outlets
• present opportunities for quality placements across appropriate media formats and timeframes
• connect your business with respected brands and opinion-makers
• open the doors for continuing media relations
Sector Specific Expertise
If you want to find a PR company who’ll add the most value to your campaigns, look for those offering services specific to your industry such as hotel or food & drink Public Relations London.
The best companies, specialising in your field will:
• use their years of experience to provide value to your business
• have the best contacts in the field and have formed strong, long-lasting relationships with key decision makers
• be able to create opportunities in your sector
• have the expertise to implement appropriate strategies for your business
• achieve optimal reach for your brand, using media outlets to reach a wider target audience
• take the time to understand your brand, audience and goals
• become an extension of your internal resource
• have an in-depth understanding of your sector, current trends and agendas of various media outlets
• develop strategies which attract the right people
Leading PRs will implement the best strategies to reach your goals.
An experienced agency will:
• look at your current strategies and assess if they’re working efficiently
• plan and implement strategies which work towards your goals
• only conduct activities which add value to your business
