A question that many companies ask is what is B2B PR and, perhaps more importantly, what is the benefit of B2B PR for my business?
In a nutshell, B2B PR is a specialism that helps businesses to sell their products and services to other businesses – not to the public.
B2B PR experts do this by working with a business to promote its brand, products and services, manage its reputation, and make it visible, credible and valued.
Every company needs PR. It’s what helps to create, maintain and promote positive perceptions about you with your target audiences, markets, customers and stakeholders, and keeps you front of mind.
Companies can manage their public relations in-house, but there are many advantages to outsourcing your PR to B2B PR agencies, which many successful B2B brands do. Why? Because PR consultancies use their vast media networks, influence, buying power, sector expertise, writing skills, media savvy and knowledge to build interest in your brand through press releases, storytelling, thought leadership, case studies, testimonials, trade articles, video, social media, advertising and more.
People’s perceptions about you is your reputation and so all of these things are carefully crafted to influence people’s perceptions so that they are positive and memorable.
B2B businesses know that a positive perception is business currency. Good PR and and a positive reputation = goodwill, new and loyal customers as well as happy employees and stakeholders.
This is the value of good PR.
A good B2B PR agency will help you to sell, grow and prosper, by:
