PR Principles for Small Business: Know Thy Audience Part 3

Stock

This isn’t something which is traded on Wall Street. We are talking stock in relation to trust. When a company’s audience feel they have that syndication we mentioned above, they begin to take stock in the company. This trust is what builds brand loyalty which goes beyond sales. Stock takes a company and provides supporters which will stay through thick and thin. When a company has any issues, knowing their audience has stock in them stands above any of the rest of the points mentioned above.

When a company goes to understand their audience they look to the public relations specialists.

Obviously these are just the beginning of the benefits which can come from knowing a company’s audience. What are some that you have in mind? Leave them in the comments below.
