Here are three key ways that hiring a public relations firm can directly impact your bottom line.

1. Protection of sales. The Internet can be a wild and dangerous place, especially when your good name is on the line. Although most customer reviews are helpful, some aim to attack your company or products. In fact, the anonymity of the Internet means that these attacks have become quite vicious. A PR firm can protect you by increasing the number of helpful reviews while monitoring and addressing the negative ones. Ultimately, this protects your reputation and your sales.

2. Reduction of salary costs.
