Branding basics

When truth is told, it is exactly that – the truth. No amount of slamming against it will make it go away, nor would it be less of a truth. Conversely, a lie told in a hundred different “beautiful” ways will remain just a lie, and even if you can con a hundred people, your lie will eventually be exposed. Word-of-mouth advertising is a powerful medium, and in the age of the instant Internet, word-of-mouth advertising through email or online forums can damage your brand reputation instantly, IF you lie.

When things go right, publicity and PR are seen as unimportant. When things go wrong, people “delegate” communication immediately to the PR folks, shirking any responsibility and accountability. Invariably, without sufficient information on hand, the poor PR folks fail to communicate effectively with the media and the public, and the image and reputation of the company goes down the drain.
