A company's profile will either make or break them. Whether success is inevitable or failure unstoppable a public relation firm is needed. In today's Internet presence and various multi media disciplines public opinion including the scrutiny of the media count. The Internet along with cable and telecommunications has added a level of scrutiny from the public that was not evident in times past. It makes financial sense to have a Public Relation Firm ion the payroll. The common misconception is that a public relations consultant does the same things that advertising and marketing Consultant do. That's simply not true. Their ability to write creative enticing and engaging copy is what sets them apart from other Consultants.

Due to the technological advances and vast information networks consumers and companies have become accessible with a click of the mouse. The rapid exchange of information has brought advertising dollars to a screeching halt. Some companies refuse to advertise unless they have a brand to sell. Even press releases cannot sell a product unless the company is a trendsetter. Working with a public relation Consultant can bring about a positive change for a company’s image. The ability to write articles that promote products to capture the medias attention is a talent that’s learned through years of networking management skills and an excellent writing style. Writing skills however are not the only traits a qualified Consultant must have but the ability to offer public speaking skills are just as important.

Fundraisers and private board meetings have been added to the many projects they handle on a daily basis. Raising funds on behalf of their client for a charity or non-profit organization requires a certain talent along with flair for the media. Filling a banquet room with over 3000 participants willing to pay thousands of dollars for a dinner table and entertainment is a rare feat to acquire. The copy must be direct succinct and capture the publics attention.



A successful PR Consultant will show ease when addressing a group of 200 people. There are many fields that require these talents. Public Relations Consultant can work in media, B2B, pharmaceutical, advertising, educational institutions privately held companies or the government. The more seasoned the Consultant the easier these tasks become. Holding a press conference in the afternoon after juggling meetings all morning is just a normal day for a successful Consultant.

A PR Consultant would preferably have a 4-year degree in public relations, advertising, or business administration. However many successful Public Relation Consultants don’t have degrees they have experience. There are several proven and successful consultant that have reached the top of their disciplines by hard work and persistence. Ambition along with a relentless drive for success has turned Consultants into a commodity. The salaries will vary with each sector. They will also fluctuate depending on experience and creativity. As a beginner one can command $40,000-$65,000 a year working on various projects. Or they can work full time with salaries ranging from the upper $40,000 to $100,00 a year.
