An Insight into PR for Businesses
VP of Phenomenal PR and Events, Heba Zahid, explains the importance of public relations.

Public Relations (PR) has become an essential method of business promotion and growth. Vice president of Phenomenal PR and Events, Heba Zahid even said, “The secret formula of success is working with a PR agency,” when accepting her award at the 12th annual Women in Business Stevie Award in New York.

Zahid agrees that even social media plays a key role in today’s PR strategies as it has the ability to engage and receive feedback in real time.

“Organizations can take advantage of this and use the interaction with their customers to better build their brand image and loyalty,” said Zahid. She believes that setbacks with social media can be avoided if the strategy is well developed and executed, but organizations need to keep in mind that social media does magnify mistakes.
