Difference Between PR, Branding, and Marketing?

Learn the difference between public relations, branding and marking for your small business.

I’ve found that the general public and business owners have been bombarded with the terms, “marketing”, “branding” and “public relations”, but they don’t really know what the terms mean. To add to it, there seems to be a growing number of “experts” giving false information to the public and to their clients, it’s easy to see why people can get confused.

Who Are You Pitching To?

Perfect Pitch For Business

There is an art to pitching. One must have different pitches for every audience & it needs to be customized every time. Pitching press, customers & boutiques are all different. Just like a baseball pitcher has developed a craft for when he throws a ball to the hitter, no pitch is alike for them either. The curve, fastball, breaking ball, change up are all thrown differently depending on the opponent. This is the same for business pitches.  But wait, there’s more!

How To Find The Right Publicist

The B3 Vision Group

Should I work with a small boutique firm or a large firm? That depends on you, your business/brand, and your wallet. As a small boutique PR firm owner, I can only scream the benefits of working with a company such as myself. Typically with smaller firms, there are no one-fits-all types of PR campaigns – everything is customized to the client. A smaller firm can think faster on their feet, adapt to any situation that can arise and can easily roll with the punches. Smaller PR firms are also less expensive than bigger firms.

Kelly Cutrone is Heaven Sent

If You Have To Cry, Go Outside Kelly Cutrone

Let me first put the disclaimer out there that I purchased this book when it first came out, but I was not in the right frame of mind to read it back then. Now, I think this book is heaven sent.

Kelly Cutrone is like a shot of hard liquor with no chaser. To some that might not be a compliment, but it the best compliment I can give her. “If You Have To Cry, Go Outside” was what I needed to get my mind on track and bring clarity to my life. The book is not a long read, or something that would take you days to get through–I read a chapter a day and took notes on key points she made in the book. What I learned from doing this was to follow the beat of your own drum, do what makes you happy, that normalcy is boring and to find my tribe.
But wait, there’s more!

HARO: Have You Heard

Help A Report Out

Help A Report Out has become my best friend in only three weeks. HARO is a website that helps reporters and freelancers get leads and quotes for their stories. As a small business owner it is extremely hard to get press without having a PR firm behind you. I opt-ed out of hiring one for the simple fact I have a degree in PR and worked in the field for 4 years. HARO helps me out because I lack a connection to publications. Connections that reach out to publications greatly help small businesses. Since joining the site, I have been interviewed for several major publications, which is really cool. Each freelancer asked to keep me on their source list for other stories that might come up. Help A Report Out is a free service that will help you out (trust me). The only slight downfall is that they email you three times a day which can be slightly overwhelming. HARO immediately called me and tried to sell me vocus, but I had to decline. Even though this can be a lot, I highly suggest joinging HARO to help grow your business with the press.
