There are key points of communicaton. Communication is an extreme step in the public relations process. This is the part that is most visible to the public. In order for a message to to be effective it must in some way inform, persuade, motivate, or achieve mutual undersatnding. In order to get a message across a couple of things must happen.

  • RECEIVING THE MESSAGE- the message should be sent out and received.
  • PAYING ATTENTION TO THE MESSAGE- gain the audience’s attention so that they will listen!
  • UNDERSTANDING THE MESSAGE- make the message clear and concise; don’t be discriminatory!
  • BELIEVING THE MESSAGE- the message needs to be beliveable; have good sources and build your credibility
  • REMEMBERING THE MESSAGE- try many different facets of conveying a message so that it is remembered
  • ACTING ON THE MESSAGE- was the recipient effected by the message? did something come out of sending the message?
