Playlist to a New Year: Putting Your Best PR Foot Forward in 2019

The firework smoke has cleared, gyms are filling up and resolutions (perhaps some PR ones?) are in full force. ‘Tis the season! Now that the in-laws have gone home, it’s time to regroup and get ready for 2019.

The badass PR professionals at the Firm want to help your company get a head start on a remarkable new year. Grab your headphones and press play! Here are some super tips and top hits (from our staff!) to kick off 2019 with your best PR foot forward:

thank u, next. What worked? What didn’t? Be honest about areas that may need improvement, but also keep in mind where the business excelled. A review of customer feedback can help identify the successes and failures that may have taken place. Companies should also evaluate the business plan in order to help establish if a change in direction is necessary. An audit of your company’s public relations practices is an excellent way to review areas of internal work that could be bolstered up. Recognize your successes, understand what you need to work on, and move forward. Just like Ariana says, “thank u, next”.

No Brainer. What are your goals, objectives and strategies for the new year? Goals should be realistic and specialized to the mission they aim to accomplish. Many companies struggle to narrow down a focus for their organization. Utilizing the blanket approach in this scenario is often unsuccessful because it is too broad and wastes resources. Instead of winging it, be strategic with the direction you want to take. It is crucial that all employees and outside vendors are on the same page about goals and the best way to achieve them. Planning is imperative. Put in the time to plan on the backend and things are a no brainer when that to-do list comes knocking!
