Thanks Laura…

Public Relations should really be viewed as Public Relations Marketing – http://www.stellarpointgroup.com/pr.html – Whatever you want to call it…”Marketing” is at the core. My experience tells me the start of any effective Public Relations actually begins with an effective Branding Strategy.

Once a company has established a strong foundation, the rest can fall into place. I am in no way saying it is always easy; however, it is much easier to export a positive message (and have people pay attention) if a company is following their own Branding & Marketing Strategies.

Looking forward to your new contributor…Thanks Again

Of my work experience and knowledge, branding is one of the marketing job. Marketer need have a comprehensive and indepth understanding of its products/ service, and then formulate its positionins/ slogan/ USP in the market. So, I think branding is one of the marketing task. But of course, PR can also formulate its branding especially in NGO sector, they probably make use of PR to publicise positive/ public concern messages via PR, instead of marketing. However, of my own case, I am a marketing person in the commerical fields in the past decades, but now, I work in NGO and publicisse the message by marketing skill (branding/ PR/ and mktg). So, I think marketing & pr is interrelated and closely interchange to use in some working fields.

For me PR is all about reputation! It is about building a reputation by using a series of marketing tools. The majority of these tools e.g. media releases, are totally free to implement.

I would agree that brands have a place to play in this … but let’s face it your brand is not your reputation per se and it would be a mistake to place too much emphasis on the brand (I’m sure that will provoke brand specialists that have commented).

It is a bit like saying that your brand and logo are the same thing … they are related but not the same. PR is not about brands … it is about your reputation!
