Get New Customers with PR

If you want to obtain new customers, and keep them, you can use public relations to your advantage in three ways:

1. Build credibility.

By having your business mentioned in a major media venue, you obtain third-party credibility you simply cannot purchase via advertising methods.

Not only does a media mention help build awareness in front of your target market, you can also use this press clipping in your marketing efforts.

2. Promote successes.

If your customers have an impressive “before and after story” from using your products and services, be sure to get permission and tell the media their stories.

Not only do reporters love to hear exclusive stories about real people with real results, but this kind of publicity also help your customers get some media attention for their own  marketing uses. It’s a win-win situation.

3. Write about your customers.

If you are preparing an original article to post on your site and share with the media, consider including a quote from a potential customer, sponsor or investor.  

This will allow you to  develop a relationship  and enhance the possibility of  working together on future projects. Plus, it will give the potential clients some free publicity for their businesses.  

And if you decide to take this approach, be sure that your article offers important information and expertise without being a sales piece. You’ll get a lot more coverage and media respect for both you and your customers if you provide valuable content  editors can use and share with their audiences.
