The best masters of the business
А теперь давайте поговорим о том человеке, which formulated the above postulates and united them into a single whole. This is Sam Black. Public relations would not have such popularity and importance in business today without his works.
A huge contribution to modern PR became weightylectures of a well-known sociologist. After all, in modern Russia public relations - what is it? It's the fruit of Sam Black's work. It was he who in his time opened for the post-Soviet space the theory of brand communications in order to promote business. Although no less interesting is the fact that the roots of the maestro public relations originate in Russia, but in 1912 his parents emigrated to England.
The organization of public relations in the post-Sovietspace - the soil is new and so far quite profitable. Despite several decades of development, it is too early to say that modern domestic promotion of mass communications is at the peak of its perfection.
The main tool for public relations onthe Russian market is banner advertising. It is too early to talk about the successful and continuous receipt of feedback from the consumer, whether he likes this or that product and what he would have changed in his discretion. The task of the current post-Soviet buyer is to consume what the advertisers kindly provided to him.
It may take several more decades, andvarious activities for disadvantaged children, orphans, pensioners, disabled people with disabilities will be held not only on the eve of political elections in the post-Soviet space, but simply for the people to taste this or that tea. But so far this is far away, and we are content with what they give.
