In business, reevaluating is not only important, but necessary. As was the case for Kay Harris’ PR Management. Overtime, the business of being a Publicist increased two-fold. As such, the need for expansion was inevitable. With the constant demands on Kay’s time, there was no longer room for working alone. The time for expansion was now and Kay made that decision without hesitation. In the interest of continued
success, Kay knew her business needed to incorporate creative, innovative, forward thinking, and professional talent to take her business to the next level. In a series of moves which incorporated strategic and managerial planning for the new direction of Kay Harris’ PR Management Firm, Kay was able to hire a new PR Manager and promote her PR Assistant to PR (cont’d on pg. 2)

In fashion, music, and entertainment in general, your image is everything! As you brand your image, your name and established or budding celebrity are attached. Most celebrities want to be revered by industry professionals and their fans as role model material. Celebrities don’t sign-up for this role, it just comes along with the territory. As difficult as it may be to stay on the proverbial “straight and narrow”, celebrities are expected to maintain an unscathed image. Suffice it to say, they aren’t always able to deliver. After all, they are human and fallible just like everyone else. This is why public relations is important. Your PR is your first line of defense. On the rare occasion when a celebrity “slips up”, your PR is there to inoculate the media with damage control. Your PR is your mouthpiece, your image angel, and keeper of all things unbefitting “YOU!” PR’s are your image doctor and plastic surgeon. PR’s fix what needs to be fixed, surgically remove anything that would be a detriment to your name and brand, and are able to repair your damaged relationships with fans, associates and more importantly, with the media. Critical to your acclaim, your PR will institutes every strategy necessary to ensure the public your integrity, character, and respect
Our team at Kay Harris PR Management Firm believes in the concept; when our clients succeed, we succeed. We exert every effort to make this a reality! We strongly internalize the ideology that we are our clients! Our firm doesn’t separate the client’s goals as a separate entity, instead we live through our clients and are inspired to achieve their goals working as one unit. We work tirelessly to deliver
expectations! (cont’d.) Why Public Relations is Important! for their adoration remain intact. Likewise, your PR will refute, rebut, and disclaim anything that deviates from who you are and what you’ve established to maintain the strength of your presence with the media, fans, and your industry peers. After all, there’s no reason your reputation should be infinitely tarnished because of one moment of weakness, one act of poor judgment or for having a bad day. In addition, it important to remember PR’s work endlessly and their jobs are all encompassing. The underlying message here is to know why you have a PR and why PR is important!
