Music is my guilty pleasure. I absolutely love it and listen to it just about every day. So with music being my interest and my major being PR, this topic of the week has asked me to relate the two. How does PR relate to music? Well lets see, you have music promotion, advertisement, and a continual system that makes that particular artist or record label good, that public relations can provide for that music company or artist.
Music promotion can be done in many ways, whether it be by the media, by word of mouth from listeners or by their PR representatives. I feel that PR is important for them because they are essentially helping them build a larger fan base. By always backing the music industry or that particular artist, by making them look good to the public, cleaning up a mess that could be caused by scandal, or what have you. Public Relations keeps positive feedback from that artist or record label to keep existing customers and potential customer’s. Advertisements are used to promote music as well. PR can help clean up an advertisement that could offend anyone or music video that the public might see as offensive. Basically , PR can be used as a security for any foundation to keep loose ends from making the company looking bad.
