The art of understanding your overall business goals comes first, before any key touches the computer screen.
- What do you want to accomplish?
- How do your goals support your organization’s overall business/strategic plan?
- What are your key messages?
- Who is your target audience – the people you want to reach with your messages?
- Where does your content now appear – or from another angle – where do you want content to appear?
Now – the craft of content development begins to develop the blog post, news item, byline article, web content and more. The art and craft of writing overlap, because I rely on both for content development.
Public relations helps an organization engage, influence and build important relationships with people or groups, such as customers, potential customers, employees, media other identified stakeholders (audiences) to the benefit of both.

Reporters and public relations professionals have long been connected to help out each other. The journalists want story ideas, credible and relevant story ideas. Public relations professionals want reporters to use their story ideas – and yes, the same criteria apply.
It’s that simple – and that challenging.
- It’s simple to suggest many ideas to reporters.
- The challenge in first answering who cares and why now – about the story ideas.
