Why Work In The Field Of Publicity

By Tiara Ogabang

Human beings need the external world to survive, for there's a severe risk we will do quite literally anything to gain an advantage over our competition.

Let's say you're in an office and get a paper cut. You'll immediately rush to the sink to get some soap and water, for the pain is really a sensation you want to get rid of.

And in this particular situation, it's quite convenient that your desk is conveniently located right next to a sink, so you don't have to walk too far.

Now, you could be thinking to yourself that if you're getting a paper cut, you probably don't want to give that experience up.

Similarly, with what's known as public relations, you may be inclined to give away every single bit of information that your company has to offer.

The reason for this is that you are competing with other companies in your industry, and it is generally in your best interests to give away as much information as possible to help your business grow.

That's why you hire a PR agency.

Not so fast.

What are public relations?

What are public relations?

Public relations is different from corporate branding and advertising. It involves a lot more nuanced and very nuanced levels of value.

To help the average person understand this, we can refer to cognitive science, which studies the many different ways the human mind thinks and why certain experience levels can be quite positive.

As a PR specialist, it's your job to create a narrative, and a way for your company to get itself in front of as many people as possible, for that is how your company becomes better known and grows in the eyes of others.

In other words, when you give away every piece of information you possibly can, it can very quickly become too much for the brain to handle.

Although this might seem like an obvious point to make, the importance of this is rarely understood by those within the field of public relations.

What does this mean?

It means that there is a potentially serious risk of all the information you have provided about your company becoming so overwhelming that the very elements of your company that hold the most value start to disappear.

We are all human beings, and as such, we don't usually handle too much information without our physical body responding in a way that drains our batteries.

If you've ever had a really stressful day at work, you probably remember feeling extremely tired afterward. As you start to deplete your physical energy, you begin to feel tired.

The same applies to your mental energy.

I say that a PR specialist should think carefully about whether or not they can give away all of their company's information and still maintain what makes their company unique because that might be one of the very reasons your company is unique and appealing to others.

This is particularly the case if you have a digital business, such as a start-up.

Here are a few ways to get into publicity.

Make a day of it

This is a great way to get yourself into public relations. You can study public relations for a few years until you have earned your degree.

There are plenty of outlets that offer seminars that will teach you how to write articles, host online radio shows, and social media tutorials.

But, most importantly, you should make a day out of your studies and spend all day doing homework. The fact that you have set yourself a new goal will most likely fill you with motivation.

Join a public relations organization

With so many people working in publicity, it can be hard to find the right outlet that's not filled with obnoxious people. That's why it is important to find a public relations organization that is different from the numerous ones that you will encounter.

By joining a public relations organization, you can network with many people and share your expertise. It is a great way to get your foot in the door, and it is also a huge confidence boost.

Try advertising

If you have the passion, you can definitely make it in advertising. But, before you go down that route, you need to know where to start.

The vast majority of people have some working knowledge of advertising, but you must know a lot more than just the basics.

Advertising can be similar to public relations in many ways. It would help if you were seen in a position that will see you stand out from the crowd, and some advertising companies are looking for people with a social media presence.

So, if you have social media skills, you'll be top of the list.

For example, you can become an online social media guru. Or, you could create content that can be circulated through various channels.

The sky is the limit, and this is a fantastic way to get yourself into publicity.

Become an artist

Are you good at drawing, painting, or sculpting? If you have an artistic bone in your body, you can use it as a publicity form.

For instance, if you paint a portrait, you can use it to promote your business or personal brand.

However, you should only do this if you have a flair for the arts and you've been practicing your art at all hours of the day. You should have an understanding of lighting, and you should also understand the psychology of painting.

Become a writer

Become an art supplier

Once you've been art or advertising guru, you can use your creativity to become a writer.

This is another way of getting yourself into publicity, as you'll be marketing yourself through your writing.

This is a great way to put your business into your potential customers' hands, which could lead to a massive number of clients.

Become an online journalist

You can go a long way if you're good at writing, and you should consider using your writing skills to get yourself into publicity.

In the past, journalism used to be regarded as a dying art. But, in recent years, it has been revitalized.

As more people are using social media and more people are interested in online content, more people turn to journalism.

If you have a strong personality, you could become a blogger or a journalist. You will get to learn a lot about the online world, and you will be able to make your opinions heard.

Become an art supplier

Another route you can take to get yourself into publicity is by becoming an art supplier.

By becoming an art supplier, you will not only be marketing yourself, but you will be helping to bring more people into your business.

Become a blogger

If you're good at writing, you can be a blogger, which is another great way to get yourself into publicity.

Blogging is becoming increasingly popular, and this is because of the benefits it can offer. Blogging allows you to give your opinion on topics that are relevant to your personal brand.

If you're an expert in a certain field, you can become an expert on blogs, and this will bring more clients to your door.


If you have a good business idea and you're passionate about it, you can make it a promotional entrepreneur.
