Businesses all too often discount the importance of fostering positive community relations. However, positioning yourself as a good neighbor or corporate citizen has tremendous power to promote your company’s products and services and increase overall brand awareness.

To be most effective, community relations should be approached strategically. That means giving to or partnering with a non-profit organization that has a direct connection to the products or services your company provides. Ideally, it should be a long-term commitment: like any relationship, community relations are built day by day and year by year. The value obtained is equal to the time and effort put forth.

Community relations can also include special events such as anniversary parties, milestone celebrations, and new facility grand openings. In every case, community relations can provide an opportunity for positive public relations and media coverage.

As a business entity, you want to give back to the community and the customers who have helped make you successful. Know that as you do, you will be increasing brand awareness, securing news media coverage opportunities, creating positive relationships with key stakeholders, and building your company’s reputation. Simply put: everyone wins when it comes to community relations!
