Crisis communications tips can be spread across the web and social media each day. How can you tell which tips you should tune into and which tips you should tune out? Earlier this week, crisis communications expert Gerard Braud asked his social media followers, public relations professionals, and media relations experts, “What’s the best piece of crisis communications advice you were ever given?” We are sorting through those answers and those tips for you today in our YouTube BraudCast video. Gerard is providing his own feedback on those tips and his own expert recommendations regarding crisis management.
Some of our followers and social media contributors have heard advice over the years of their studies and practices regarding news releases, empathy statements, and how fast you need to respond to the media in a crisis situation. We want you to add to the discussion and comment here and on our social media pages to share some of the best public relations advice you were ever given.
This question is one of a series of debates in the media relations, crisis communications, public relations, and social media industries where you and your colleagues can share observations with each other. Yes, YOU are invited to share your bite-size bits of best practices. Here is how:
