What makes an excellent PR campaign?

According to DDB Group Philippines, one of the top 3 finalists for Agency of the Year in the 53rd Anvil Awards last year, the shift in the use of public relations toward supporting both the marketing objectives and the corporate social-responsibility initiatives of companies and institutions is very much evident these days. The PR programs and tools that usually win in the industry’s highest accolades were those considered highly effective not only in raising brand loyalty and awareness, but also informing and educating the public and building consumer trust and engagement; and also those that serve higher human and community needs, according to the group. Couple with the use of social media, the campaigns amplify content among various target audiences. And with more Filipinos hooked on the Internet, the more the campaigns become successful as more audiences get engaged and share their experiences. For the PRSP, only the legitimate PR programs and tools will find their way to the Anvil Awards, being the vanguard of the PR profession implementing the Anvil with utmost credibility based on the following criteria: result and social impact, sustainability, and innovation. These are what it takes to be a winner: the program should be innovative, trailblazing, and game-changing or transformative. That’s why the PRSP, turning 62  this year, continues to be the guiding body of Filipino communicators and PR practitioners. More than just uniting the country’s communicators and PR practitioners, PRSP intends to live up to the very DNA, which it was created for: Promoting professional integrity based on sound and ethical practice. PRSP President Ritzi Villarico Ronquillo, APR, affirmed this in an earlier interview by this writer for the BusinessMirror. Source: www.businessmirror.com.ph
