Never again confuse leverage with loyalty, propagandism with publicity, and corporate social responsibility with a lucrative account representing a murderous but hugely wealthy Central Asian dictator. Bask in the admiration of your fellow communications professionals as you pronounce confidently on what to do when horse meat is discovered in the client's 'basics' range of lasagne, or a fire breaks out in their fireproof goods factory, or a wildly politically incorrect utterance is made by a senior member of the board. Discover why there is a curious prevalence of attractive young women in PR consultancies in stark contrast to the curious prevalence of rheumy-eyed elderly men in in-house roles. And if you learn one thing from this book, make sure it is the importance of always retaining an external consultancy to do most of the actual work and take 100% of the blame. DO SAY: "This has been a watershed year for your company. Since you engaged us, ACME plc is now universally recognised as a phenomenally successful, sustainable, socially responsible yet curiously undervalued investment opportunity." DON'T SAY: "PR is perhaps the only occupation in which bluffing skills are absolutely paramount."

The digital era's new consumer demands a new approach to PR Inbound PR is the handbook that can transform your agency's business. Today's customer is fundamentally different, and traditional PR strategies are falling by the wayside. Nobody wants to feel "marketed to;" we want to make our own choices based on our own research and experiences online. When problems arise, we demand answers on social media, directly engaging the company in front of a global audience. We are the most empowered, sophisticated customer base in the history of PR, and PR professionals must draw upon an enormous breadth of skills and techniques to serve their clients' interests. Unfortunately, those efforts are becoming increasingly ephemeral and difficult to track using traditional metrics. This book merges content and measurement to give today's PR agencies a new way to build brands, evaluate performance and track ROI. The ability to reach the new consumer, build the relationship, and quantify the ROI of PR services allows you to develop an inbound business and the internal capabilities to meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding client. In this digital age of constant contact and worldwide platforms, it's the only way to sustainably grow your business and expand your reach while bolstering your effectiveness on any platform. This book shows you what you need to know, and gives you a clear framework for putting numbers to reputation. Build brand awareness without "marketing to" the audience Generate more, higher-quality customer or media leads Close the deal and nurture the customer or media relationship Track the ROI of each stage in the process Content is the name of the game now, and PR agencies must be able to prove their worth or risk being swept under with obsolete methods.

It has been said many times before that the journey of a thousand miles (or kilometres in the South African context) begins with a single step. In the case of South Africa’s Ultimate Brand Ambassadors (SAUBA), it was a single step of faith, a step of courage and the passion to see a change in the lives of individuals and communities.

"When I had this vision I was looking at the number of young people who have a hunger to be empowered, yet also willing to do good in their communities and mentor others, especially those who are less-privileged. I was hopeful that SAUBA would be the kind of vision that would take its participants beyond their current realities. Moreover, that it would be a picture of a preferable future that motivates and drives us to action our dreams and ambitions."

This book shares a number of valuable lessons and details the journey of the Top Five SAUBA Finalists. It tells of their challenges, failures, victories and growth in trying to execute their action plans for their communities as part of the SAUBA 2013 reality competition.

This PRCA Practice Guide describes how to invest in readiness and what to do when a crisis strikes. Coverage includes contingency planning, stakeholder identification, crisis communications policy, spokesperson training, the `Red Book', dark sites, rehearsals and simulations, locations and resources, taking the initiative, and managing the aftermath.

Including numerous real-life examples, discussion topics and advice from PR experts, journalists and editors, Crisis Communications Management is intended as an essential guide for public relations professionals, and the people who work with them during a crisis, on how to navigate the turmoil and emerge from a crisis with reputation and credibility intact.
