Public Relation Essay Sample

Public Relations is the knowledge that relates to company’s Public Relation policies and management, creating and managing company image by means of Press Release, advertising and company’s presentations.

There are some benefits of PR; it can build a strong sense of corporate identity by promoting its good image to the public/outsiders, clear the misconceptions and prejudices from the public, promote the organization activities/services and products by using, for example, sales promotion. The other ones are attract and keep important/key personnel and also project a sense of social responsibility, for example, by giving donation.

There are some advantages and disadvantages of having a PR department. The advantages are the PR manager can understand the workings of the organizations, can easily establish internal lines of communications, and is on the spot to act quickly when there is a problem which requires his assistance. The disadvantages are a PR manager may be so close to the organization that he may be biased in reporting the activities of the organization and sometimes they don’t have the necessary skills to conduct certain PR activities, therefore it is too expensive to keep an in-house PR department if we seldom use them.

One of the activities of a PR practitioner is featuring official openings of new premises-arrangements for guests, VIPs and press. In this opportunity, my boss has requested me to see to the opening of a branch of the Hypermarket in PekanBaru and to arrange the preparations using the allocated budget of approximately 50 millions and six – point planning model.

The six-point planning models are:

1. Problem analysis

2. Definition of objectives

3. Definition of Publics

4. Selection of media and techniques

5. Planning a budget

6. Evaluation of results

CONCLUSIONS

We need to follow the six-point planning model so that we can arrange it well. First of all, the PR practitioner must analyze the problems, understanding the situation by asking as many questions as possible to get a clear picture of the situation.

The second step is to define the objective. Specifying the short term and long term objectives of the PR because the objectives are measurable but they have to be prioritized.

The third step is to define the publics. In this part, we need to define the publics to decide exactly which publics can be reached effectively. PR publics can be varied and many, and not only buyers. The groups of the publics are as follows, the community, potential employees, employees, suppliers, investors, distributors, customers and users, opinion leader, regulatory authorities, and the media.

The fourth step is the selection of media and techniques. In order to reach and have a good communication with the publics, we can use several types of media, such as, Press, radios, exhibitions, sponsorships, seminars and conferences, and many others.

The next step is the budgeting. This budgeting consists of 4 elements, labors cost, office overheads, supporting materials and expenses.

The last step is the evaluation of results. This step is to evaluate whether the program have been successful or not, and this result can be use for future references. This step can only be done after all the programs have done.
