No. Neither can I ‘PR the hell out of this one’. (Both things I have actually been asked to do, I should point out.)
Public Relations is a lot of things – but it’s not a verb
At its core – and very simply – PR is telling people things so that they will like you. And if people like you, they will be happier doing business with you. They’ll be better at doing business for you. They’ll be happier giving you permission to do business.
Of course, there’s lots of different people you might want to build relationships with. Which is why PR is divided up into different areas.
