Thought Leadership and the Role it Plays in Your PR Plan
Thought leadership is a great way to establish expertise and credibility in a particular industry or field. It’s arguably one of the most powerful public relations strategies out there today, and if you’re not using it as a part of your marketing strategy, you certainly should be.
Thought leadership, whether writing an article for an important trade publication in your field or doing an interview about key issues affecting your industry, shows the public that you care about the industry you’re in by taking the time to learn about hot topics in your field and important trends that could affect your target audience. Sharing that knowledge with others is a great and authentic way to reach current clients, prospective clients and referral sources.
People don’t like a hard sell and thought leadership allows you to get in the door without overtly selling your business. It helps you start new conversations and make new relationships. People like to talk to people they trust, and by showcasing your credibility in your field, you become a trustworthy person in their eyes.
Whether you are in law, real estate, or even finance, if you haven’t considered using thought leadership, now is the time to do so. More than ever, people are using the internet to research everything. The more you’re out there as a leader in your field, the more they’ll be able to access you and learn more about your business.
