IS Pr Really needed?

with Shay Wheat, CEO, Grace & Ease Productions
with Alessandra Pollina, Founder of Quotable Media

Can PR really make that big of a difference for my company?
Alessandra Pollina, Founder of Quotable Media, joins me, Shay Wheat, on the latest episode of Creating Powerful Impact to share exactly why we need public relations, even if we are doing it ourselves.
Alessandra shares the number one reason you need PR is to get in front of more people. You are giving this new audience a deep dive into who you are and what sets you apart when you appear on TV, in magazines, on podcasts, and the radio.
Not only are you increasing your visibility but also your authority. The long time listeners or readers of media trust the hosts and know if they recommend someone, they are trusted. You have already bypassed a step in creating trust by gaining the trust of the host!
We all want content that can be repurposed and PR is no different! Highlight your media on your website. Show off your TV spots when you are looking for your next gig! PR can only help you grow and scale your business.
Listen to the full episode to hear Alessandra’s tips and why right now is a great time for small businesses to be using PR.
