“One Size Fits All” is true in some areas, but that’s definitely not true in the world of luxury goods. Getting that information out about specialty brands is incredibly important. And it’s just as untrue that public relations groups fit every size. For different types of companies, a different public relations team is necessary and with a team skilled in marketing for luxury goods, there may just be a perfect match.

Some of the capabilities to look for in any luxury public relations include the ability to generate good media coverage. That means not only conveying your brand identity in the best way possible in the communications put out to the media, but choosing the right places for these messages to appear and a specialized public relations agency will have those connections in place.

Prominence Marketing Group Public Relations Accelerator Program

It’s a phrase I hear over and over again from many brands — “I’d love to hire someone to launch our publicity campaign professionally, but we can’t afford it, so I’m just going to have to do it on my own.” Prominence Marketing Group understands that every growing company cannot afford a 5K-10K monthly public relations retainer.

Using PR as a marketing tool also allows you to gain credibility for your business. Reason being, PR presents people with information from a third party. We are much more likely to trust positive coverage about companies that we read in a newspaper, magazine, or on an online press release. Compare that to the only alternative that will reach the same volume of audience, such as using television, billboards, radio or other advertising methods. When you compare the two, you can see why more and more businesses are starting to develop PR strategies.

Overall, developing a successful PR strategy is fundamental in taking businesses to the next level. It provides the following benefits:

-It provides a vital role in promoting businesses to their customers.
-When done correctly, it can often provide a greater result than advertising, whilst costing less.
-It allows you to quickly respond to opportunities within publicity.
-If you ever experience bad press, having a solid PR strategy in place will reduce the damage caused.
-It can improve the overall image of a company within the community.
