You can drastically increase the profitability of your company.
There is always a chance that a well-devised news event or release will get “bumped” from planned media coverage because of a more critical breaking news story, such as wars, severe weather or serious crime.
While a PR campaign has the potential to yield a high return on promotional expense, it also has the potential to produce the opposite if the news media feels there is little value in running a story pitch.
Unlike advertising, you cannot control how your business is portrayed by the media, when your message will appear, and where it will be placed.
It can be difficult to measure the effectiveness of your work.
Your workload and work outcomes are unpredictable.
