The Importance of PR Packages

I was on Instagram a few weeks ago when I saw an influencer live unpacking an item she had received from a brand. There were various kinds of items in that box, all were eco-friendly products. She described everything in proper detail and appreciated the brand for its efforts. A few weeks later I saw many users buying that same thing and tagging that brand as well as the influencer! I mean look at how people got influenced by her within a short span of time! 
I was naturally surprised and got curious about what is this PR package and how brands/firms leverage it for their benefit. I know you are too so let’s unbox this! Shall we?

 

PR Packages -  What Are They?

These paid partnerships you see on Instagram or the “unboxing” videos you watch on various platforms on your favorite influencer’s/ celebrity feed are PR packages sent by a brand or firm to them. 
These items are carefully researched and assorted by the PR team and sent to a particular influencer.
There is no legal contract between the influencer and the brand so they are free to either post the content or reject it. Of course, the motive behind this package is to drive more sales, and descriptive reviews, so that is why these brands reach out to different types of influencers according to their requirements.

 

Why Brands Should Send PR Packages To Influencers?

You may believe that PR packages have become popular due to influencer marketing and brand collaborations. But here is an interesting fact - all this has been in practice for a long time now. Like sending some particular item or maybe offering a service to a celebrity or sportsperson, it has been there for many years.
Many people taking up this influencer profession have only boosted a brand’s image and sales. The PR team of a brand makes sure they reach out to a particular social media influencer who creates content in their industry. The Importance of PR Packages can be easily associated with the fact that the brand is exclusively focusing on the sales number that it will bring. And how is that? Well, more than often influencers do create the content on the item or services they receive from the brand, so looking at the follower's numbers, these brands will get their potential leads from there, and voila! It is a win-win situation.

How Can You Make Your Package Personalized?

Who doesn’t like something that is customized to their preferences or requirements? We all want this. But why should brands be concerned with it? You see, when any brand reaches out to an influencer, it has to ensure that it is not just about sending a PR package. It is about establishing a connection with influencers. They are not just your representatives, they are now a part of your brand, and just as you would warmly welcome a guest into your home, the same should be done with influencers. 

What can you do?

1) Make an inquiry about their interests, and their favorite shade if you are a cosmetic brand 
2) The things they care about 
3) Add a short note addressing them and their work. 
4) Send a follow-up message after they have received the package. 

Remember taking feedback also shows how much you care about your own product/services.

Also, this is a wonderful gesture that will create a lasting impression on the person.

 

How Can this Become A 3x Benefit?

When a brand sends a package to a celebrity, blogger, influencer, or someone they align with, they are positive about the fact that they will receive a good amount of publicity, They often prefer this advertising because it is cheaper and it shows instant results either way.
So, The Importance of PR packages is that they benefit not only the company and influencer, but also the audience because they can easily learn the benefits and drawbacks from someone they can relate to. Sometimes they too enjoy the extra benefits as the brand offers them some exclusive benefits. And as for the influencers and brand, it is a mutual benefit.
The more popular the influencer is among the brands, the more collaborations they are a part of in the future.
Well, as for the brands it becomes easier to reach out to them and expand the influencer network.

I’m glad to share my experience working with HackNet Credit Specialist. I had some negative reports of my credit report which really affected me and my family from qualifying for a mortgage at other lenders. I went online and saw people recommending him for his good work and I contact him via mail HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM. He cleared all issues relating to my report within a couple of week. If you are having any issues concerning your credit report please CONTACT him with the above email he’s professional and if you also need to qualify for a mortgage with a lender with no lender overlays. Thanks

CREDIT KARMA IS A SCAM. A year ago, my husband and I planned to get a new car for me and the children, so we decided to build our credit using credit karma app. We followed every instruction diligently and always made sure we did everything right. My husband’s score rose to 780’s in 9 months, we were very happy that our dream would come earlier than expected. Imagine our disappointment and frustration when my husband applied for a car loan and was declined due to a low credit score. We realized that his score was 630. A dealer recommended Rootkits Credit Specialist; they helped us raise our score by 80 points within 5 days. It was an amazing experience. Are you in need of any kind of credit assistance, they are the real deal. We reached them via mail: rootkitscreditspecialist@gmail.com or mobile: 815 524 8116.

I used to Have some bad debts, Unpaid student loans and even a criminal record probably as a result of past mistakes or the bad choices made, All of these negative records in one way or the other cause serious damage to my credit-worthiness on my credit reports , thus deflecting my score. Thanks to ( NEWHORIZONCREDIT1 AT GMAIL DOT COM ) who came to my rescue and cleared all the negativities on my credit report and boosted my score .
