Public RelationsTOOLSThere are various tools that can be used in the practice of PR. Traditional tools include press releases and media kits which are sent out to generate positive press on behalf of the organization. Other widely-used tools include brochures, newsletters, press conferences and annual reports.

Increasingly, companies are utilizing interactive social media, such as blogs, Twitter and Facebook, as tools in their PR campaigns. Unlike the traditional tools which allowed for only one-way communication, social media allows the organization to engage in two-way communication, and receive immediate feedback from their various stakeholders and publics.Public RelationsTechniquesPublic Targeting

PR Firms will try to use demographics to identify key segments to target, but not all segments are clearly defined by demographics.

Demographic data may not be helpful when trying to identify people who may be willing to contribute money to a specific charitable organization.Public RelationsTechniquesLobby Groups

are established to influence government policy, corporate policy, or public opinion. Such groups claim to represent a particular interest and in fact are dedicated to doing so.Public RelationsTechniquesSpin

While traditional public relations may also rely on creative presentation of the facts, "spin" often, though not always, implies disingenuous, deceptive and/or highlymanipulativetactics. Politicians are often accused of spin by commentators and political opponents when they produce a counterargument or position.Public RelationsTechniquesSpin
