A public, in PR terms, is anyone who ever has or ever will form an opinion about the client money.howstuffworks.com PUBLIC RELATIONS CONSULTANCY
The biggest job responsibility of a public relations consultant is to make his or her clients as well known and positively viewed in the community as possible. This means meeting with clients, finding out how they want to be perceived by the target audience and then designing campaigns and media events to ensure that it happens.www.jobprofiles.org RESEARCH
