PR vs. Digital Marketing: What Small Businesses Need To Know
As an entrepreneur or small business trying to tackle marketing and public relations yourself can be tricky and sometimes confusing. Although closely linked together, public relations (PR) and digital/online marketing, have two different functions.
Traditionally, public relations is an umbrella term for how the public perceives your brand. It’s the action of maintaining a favorable public image. While, digital marketing is focused on the business of promoting and selling products or services, which also includes advertising and generating leads.
Most people confuse the roles because to be honest, they’re intertwined. You can’t market your business without public relations, and you can’t ensure proper public perception without a little marketing. At the end of the day, they both have one goal: to make a consumer love your company and buy your products or services.
When it comes to PR and digital marketing, one thing is for sure. We live in an increasingly digitized world, with an increasingly competitive business environment and every business, no matter how big or small needs a competitive edge to stay in the game.
