CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Dec. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Public Relations tactics and tools are broad-reaching, affecting millions of consumers when successful. This makes Public Relations a highly leveraged marketing investment, requiring relatively low investment to reach large audiences. More specifically, Public Relations tools can be easily utilized to benefit all phases of the product lifecycle, especially at launch and brand-building years.
However, field research suggests few companies maximize the full potential of PR campaigns throughout the entire product lifecycle – from preparing and launching to growing and extending a brand, according to Best Practices, LLC study, "Using Public Relations to Launch, Grow and Extend Your Brands."
While Public Relations have long been used as a marketing tool by the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, its ability to reach consumers has never been greater. This research will help companies take advantage of the many recommendations and actions to better align PR activities and tactics during the different stages of a product's lifecycle.
Public Relations can also help build a bridge from between a first-generation success to a future blockbuster. Field findings revealed that successor product teams generally should commence Public Relations two years prior to the new product's global launch.
Study topics include:
