Abstract

Businesses are realizing public relations services cost less than advertising and marketing services combined. The challenge for today's public relations practitioners is to show businesses how public relations services add to, rather than subtract from, the bottom line. This article discusses how public relations activities add to a company's prosperity and offers a "calculus" for calculating the dollars saved by using these services. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
