Lack of knowledge brings nothing good. Lack of knowledge about PR cuts the wings and is a source of problems in business. What’s next? Find a book which is like a knowledge medicine.
At my work I often experience that PR improves business. Talks which I call coffee PR and workshop connected with the project Charms of Business let me realize that:
- even if we have some knowledge about PR (?), we don’t know how to introduce PR solutions in practice,
- most mistakes occur because of lack of knowledge about communication,
- there is a need to have practical guide of PR – clear, real and useful.
So I have been writing such a PR guide. Because I wish PR solutions brought benefits both for people and their businesses. A kind of PR manual for you where you don’t find the words like press clipping, briefing, media relations as this book is not for PR specialists.
Der Hund begraben?
Do you know the German phrase: da liegt der Hund begraben (in English: that’s the snag)? Intracommunication and PR plan are the elements of a test which tells you if you are ready for business or not. The lack of knowledge about PR results in problems. This book answers the question how to use PR, so it reveals where da liegt der Hund begraben.
2 in 1?
Be careful because together with the dog Titus, you’ll get the cat. This book is 2 in 1 which means that it is both about PR and marketing. Sometimes they cooperate. Sometimes not. And sometimes they are like jing and jang in business. So in one book you’ll find a PR guide written by me and a marketing guide written by Joanna Czerska-Thomas.
Now we try to tame the dog Titus with the cat Prezes. The cat is inside a sofa in an office. The dog is near this sofa. Everyone is alive and sends best regards.
There is a plan to share with you good news at Charms of Business 2015. (PS God, pleas, do not laugh!) So, it’s a job to do and the inner voice screams: you make it!
