Select up to six PR tools you will use to promote your client’s product or service. Each team member will choose one tool. The tool I choose is “Blogging”
Blogging. To reach the online audience, PR specialists
use the digital forms of press releases and newsletters but they also
use a variety of other tools such as blogging and recently,
microblogging. It allows them to create and maintain a relationship with
the target audience as well as establish a two-way communication.
Review The Practice of Public Relations, Ch. 15 on how to write a news release as well as more brief promotional writing for social media such as Twitter.
Review The Practice of Public Relations, Ch. 9 and decide which forms of paid, earned, or owned media you will integrate into your campaign. Be specific with your choices. For example, for paid media you might create an ad for a print or online newspaper or magazine. For owned media, you might create a blog, Facebook page, etc. For earned media, you might develop a publicity campaign for what is known as “third-party endorsement.” Refer to Ch. 9 of The Practice of Public Relations for more information on these tools. The Whole Team Decide which form works with blogging.
