PR or public relations aren’t important only for big companies but also for small companies and startups. They are among the most important functions of every company. This doesn’t only include media relations and media announcements, which can significantly contribute towards the success and reputation of your company, but also other forms of communication with target groups, where a lack of suitable communications can trigger negative consequences.

We can see the effects of good communication with target publics on crowdfunding campaigns. Many startups that led successful Kickstarter campaigns told us that their communication with target publics was key for the campaign’s success. The fact is that the difference between a successful and unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign lies precisely in good or bad PR. Journalists play an important role in spreading information among company’s customers, which is why good public relations can also significantly contribute to increased sales. 

How to tackle PR, when is a PR agency necessary, what can you do by yourself, how much will it cost you and answers to other questions will be found with Majda, Kristjan and Jaro.
