Public Relations is also a necessary evil for the small business: public relations takes a number of forms and in its purest form is viewed as the means by which a company can communicate honestly and accurately with its public: it includes media releases, product launches and premises openings (My Business, 2004c; Williams, 2004). PR is generally a cheap form of communication, but, if you want to do it effectively there are simple guidelines to follow: if you are about to set up a business send a press release to the local paper, or hold a launch event and target the appropriate trade journals (My Business, 2004c). When writing a press release, it is vital to keep it simple: journalists are bombarded with hundreds of press releases every week and have tight deadlines to meet, and so if the press release babbles, there is a very good chance it will end up in the bin before the third paragraph is reached.
