PR is a way to get yourself heard. It is a weapon to deliver messages to the masses, and a way to advocate for different subjects. If you think about it, PR is used to create a positive image of a company or individual. While this is the end result, you can create this positive impact, by advocating for different problems and initiatives too.
Advocacy means supporting a cause or policy by delivering your perspective on it. For example, you support climate action, so, you will use PR to spread the message of how you are working for the cause.
To make people more aware of the subjects that you advocate for, PR is the medium you need. Advocacy through PR is something that delivers a common message to all. So, even if someone doesn’t understand what you do, a simple message saying that you are contributing towards social welfare will leave a positive impact on them.
A good PR agency will listen to your needs and deliver content that aligns with the topic you advocate for and create content that has an emotional ring to it. Hence, when you seek out a PR agency, you should include advocacy as a base of your PR strategies and mission.
