To be a success in business, you need to get your name out there. You also need to be recognized as a credible/reliable source for your product or service. Publicity will help you achieve both.
Small business owners love publicity and a media feature. Not only does it make your mother proud, it reassures your existing customers of your credibility and can often attract new business.
The biggest question and challenge for many entrepreneurs is how do you reach out and garner media attention? For many, a fulltime public relations team is not a practical option so they need to be smart in how they position their brand and invest their limited resources. Public relations and publicity needs to be a part of business strategy and approached in everything the business does.
