Does the thought of public relations bring to mind interacting with and being received by your community in a positive way, or does it conjure images of damage control after your brand becomes embroiled in a crisis?
Fortunately, an experienced PR agency can offer more than bandages and duct tape to your construction company. In fact, partnering with the right agency for construction public relations can help you invest in your brand and “save up” for the unfortunate, and hopefully only occasional, crisis.
Your company has many stories to tell. You have a brand you’ve invested in, a community you care about, project news and accomplishments to share with your target audiences, and future employees to hire. An experienced public relations agency can help you tell these stories by translating your news into press releases, securing interviews with relevant media, sharing your accomplishments with the press, managing your social media, and even assisting with job postings.
By positioning your company as experts in the construction industry, creating and maintaining brand awareness, and humanizing your company, a sort of equity is built for when things go awry. As much as we all try, no person or company is perfect and sometimes mistakes are made. Equipment can fail on the jobsite, accidents can happen, people can get hurt and they can also make terrible decisions. However, just as your public relations agency is there for you as soon as a crisis happens, so is that stellar reputation you’ve been working so hard to build.
Any crisis can hurt, but it’s much easier to recover when you’ve been proactively working with a construction public relations agency to build rapport with your communities and target audiences. After extinguishing the flames from a crisis, it’s crucial to begin delivering positive news again as soon as possible to remind everyone of that reputation for excellence you’ve created.
