While the end of the pandemic is in sight, a new crisis is bound to rear its head in the future. If there’s one thing COVID has taught businesses, it’s that despite your preparedness, no company is impervious to the unpredictability of a sudden disaster, internal or external. Managing your business’s public relations and facing a crisis takes strategy and proactiveness. Since formulating strategies based on the unknown can seem a daunting task, Vision Advertising’s latest Business Bootcamp webinar focuses on facing crises with candid communication and preparedness.

What You’ll Discover About Crisis Management and PR

This installment in the Business Bootcamp series – featured on Facebook Live – was a resource to help businesses and entrepreneurs maintain their brand image and conduct transparent marketing during a crisis. In the video, you can expect an in-depth explanation of how to handle PR and reputational management, along with a categorical breakdown of crisis management. Our own Chief Operating Officer, Julia Becker Collins, will teach you about:

  • Showing reliability and experience through public relations.
  • Preparing the three stages of crisis management: pre-crisis, crisis response, and post-crisis.
  • Taking a proactive approach to crisis management, rather than reactive.
  • Employing transparency during a crisis to build trust amongst your audience.
  • Managing your reviews – both positive and negative – to maintain your reputation.
  • Dealing with critics from a point of understanding, both publicly and privately.

You’ll also receive helpful information on managing your social media accounts during a crisis and how to publicly address changes in your operations.
