This pr book is a must-read for startups and scale-ups that are looking to establish and elevate their presence in the saturated tech market. Boasting values similar to that at PRLab, a recommended read for anyone looking to understand how to achieve significant PR results that will help boost the growth of their business in a cost and time effective manner.
Readers can expect a book that is written very personally, with a genuine intention to impart knowledge and guide the reader on a path to mastering PR. The book summarizes all my years of work experience in PR. In the frantically paced world of PR, the reader will learn key lessons from the benefits of doing PR as a startup, and building a brand through PR strategies to scaling up PR strategies for international expansion and crisis communications.
In my personal experience, the literature and marketplace of ideas was often focused on big corporations or PR for big agencies. The numerous number of conferences I attended did not offer me any insight into the skills and tools required to face the complexities of PR for tech companies.
As such, I created my own meetup group which has now evolved into a much wider PRLab community, which focused on PR for startups and tangible tips and real-life strategies. As a natural extension of these goals, The PR Paradox was inspired by the concept of sharing and exchanging ideas, to innovate and be innovative for PR - both as a craft and as an art.
Most PR books aim to inspire and can be quite rhetorical. In comparison, The PR Paradox is a hands-on and strategic guide, which businesses can follow in order to achieve their goal of implementing a practical PR strategy. Moreover, it is targeted at startups and scale-ups - the market segment that I’m specialised in, so the advice is also cost-effective for businesses who may have small budgets and may not be able to afford high PR fees.
