Coming back to the association, the agency has seen a gap for local industry and what we did was to create a product that we feel like it has got attention to the industry players.
We believe that this product will bring a great solution to our Kingdom. We are more than thankful that some of the key players have contacted us and may however feel like we took the wrong move towards this approach.
We are more than happy to arrange a meeting and inviting all the key players in the mentioned industry as we are more than aware that we cannot start an association without engaging the right people.
Be rest assured that we haven’t taken any money from anyone but willing to work with people and assist where possible we however will support everyone who shows interest on being part of this movement as we will sees to pave through the right platforms until the Association is a standalone product for the benefit of its own members.
Remember, it’s important as we look at Public Relations (PR) while we studying Marketing and we look at how they complement each other. PR is driven by reputation and the reputation as an organization is very much a reality and the reality is what others are saying about you as an organization which builds up your image.
Whereas, marketing is all about what we say about our self and very much about building the brand and a brand is very much the organizational identity.
This is where the agency comes in to create that inter-relationship. If an organization spends time Marketing, creating clear consistence, communication, messages, and PR being transparent in their operations they can start to help one another because the house can actually open its doors and welcome the branding and the reputation of the organization can help support and protect the organizational brand.
