Nothing is more powerful or influential than public opinion when it comes to determining how a business performs. Even if you offer the most outstanding products, services and value for money on Earth, negative public opinion could still destroy your business. With the internet having given every person with a voice the ability to be heard globally, reputation management is no longer a passive practice. Instead, it is up to PR professionals to continually monitor, analyse, engineer and ultimately control public opinion, in order to ensure it works in the organisation’s favour. The power of public opinion is matched only by that of the most successful PR professionals.
