Ask your audience what they want, need

By Posted in - Grassroots Marketing & Media Relations & News Releases & Public Relations on August 1st, 2012 0 Comments

It can be easy for PR practitioners to get caught up in day-to-day activities for clients. It almost feels like a bubble where we’re disconnected from what’s going on “in the field.”

To stay in tune with what our audiences want and need, while connecting on a more personal level with editors, bloggers and a client’s audience, we take the time to do the following:

  • Connect with key individuals at trade shows
  • Send out questionnaires to get honest feedback on how we can enhance our programs
  • Simply ask for advice on how we can better serve them

The results?  Lots of ideas to enhance our current capabilities, while refining the way we do certain things, such as distribute news releases, pitch ideas, etc.

Have you taken the time to get feedback from your audience?  You should ask them today.
