PR consultant from Amsterdam to the world

Managing the public image of your brand can be difficult if you have to focus on developing your product or service. Yet a PR strategy is essential to increase your brand awareness, authority and ultimately to nurture your audience. Matias Rodsevich is CEO of PRLab, one of the fastest growing PR agencies in the Netherlands, and his consulting services can help you plan and execute a successful PR strategy.

What is A PR consultant?

A PR consultant is an individual who provides expert advice on the development and execution of your public relations strategy, campaign, or department. The role of a PR consultant is to help you to build the relationship between your organization and its audience. By helping you develop a strategy that effectively utilizes the tools of PR, a PR consultant can help you build the awareness and authority of your brand.

As a startup or small business owner, it can be challenging finding new customers and clients when people are naturally drawn towards businesses with proven reputations. Working with a PR consultant means you can begin to take the steps to establish this reputation for yourself.

This is because a PR consultant can effectively develop a strategy that will increase your visibility. By managing and leveraging your communications, a PR consultant can help you to increase the trust between you and your customers. Establishing credibility with PR can directly increase your sales.

Why do you need PR consulting?

PR is just as important for startups and new businesses as it is for big companies. It is a misconception that PR is only for maintaining well established brands, as an integrated PR strategy will help you plan your content, differentiate you from your competitors, and optimize your communications to best reach your audience.

In addition to having knowledge about what PR strategies will and won’t work for your business, they can bring a lot of other beneficial expertise to the table. If you’re an early stage startup, a PR consultant can advise you on the fund raising process, devising a strategy both for finding funding, as well as getting coverage in the media.

PR consultants often work on specific areas, and one of these could be crisis management. They can ensure you are prepared for a crisis, and help you protect your reputation should you find yourself in one.

As PR has become so integrated into marketing and branding, a PR consultant can help you with general business skills, helping you develop your marketing techniques and implement effective business models that are suited to your position and industry. They can provide media training, teaching you the tools and skills necessary for public speaking and getting the most out of your media interactions.
