Our perceptions are the culmination of our thoughts, experiences and core beliefs. We communicate according to the way we perceive things.
When it comes to PR, perception is everything. And in brand building, it is the single most crucial ingredient for success. In business, it all begins and ends with PR…
A concrete example of this is the psychology of capital markets. Investors and shareholders looking to invest stockwill only target and trade what they perceive will yield a high return on investment.
They will only invest in a brand which for them has value. Value is created through perception which helps us understand information and ultimately, drives decision making.
Value is created through public relations and enhanced through communications.
It is therefore critical that a company’s reputation is fiercely preserved through PR and that it maintains a positive relationship with the media and key stakeholders in order to gain long lasting loyalty and credibility.
Ultimately, PR serves to increase the significance of a brand by influencing the way individuals feel about it. Increasing the perception of value will increase desire to engage and therefore; invest – which is the goal of any business.
