What's the meaning of PR? (of course i find in google). The text say :
Quote:
Do your own PR. An online presence and a neat portfolio are must-haves, but there are plenty of PR tricks, awards and events...
(from a artist magazine) tnk.

Damn, that'd be a good band name.

Maybe I'm sick and twisted, but that just sounds both wrong and funny [lol]

Seriously though, In this context I think it's basically saying advertise yourself - make sure that people know you exist, and that you have something to show off when necessary [smile]

"Real" PR in the media world is pretty much a case of people trying to other peoples attention by presenting/announcing/shouting-about stuff[attention]

Public Relations boils down to:

- Making sure people know about you
- Sucking up to your customers
- Keeping them sweet
- Attending fairs and expos
- Giving away free pens at fairs and expos


The sad thing is that it works. No decent product has to leave your office as long as you can tell pretty stories.

Public Relations (PR) concerns the generations of "buzz".

Read:

Full Frontal PR: Getting People Talking About You, Your Business, or Your Product
by Richard Laermer and Michael Prichinello
Bloomberg © 2003 (233 pages)
ISBN: 1576600998

There's more to generating "buzz" than how Zanthos described public relations. In fact, only the first point Zanthos mentioned directly applies to public relations. The rest are promotional activities. There's a reason for PR & Marketing Network's $497 per year subscription fee, and it's not because public relations is all about "giving away free pens".
