PR Results Be Measured? Can
The media ignores good news, PR is all Spin, Smokescreens and Lies; these are just a few of the widely-accepted myths that you are likely to have heard about the PR industry. But why have these misconceptions endured for so long, in spite of clearly demonstrable evidence on the contrary?
If someone outside of the industry thinks anything about PR, it is likely to relate to a variation of these concepts. However in reality, PR can do incredible things for businesses, causes and individuals, especially when professionals understand exactly what PR does, the impact it can have and how it can be effectively measured.
From the assumption that PR is a never-ending party to the more potentially damaging illusion that all publicity is good publicity,Myths of PR,the new book fromRich Leigh- one of the most exciting young communication experts in the UK - endeavours to shatter these widespread misconceptions and shed new light on essential PR methodology.
