Regional PR can make significant improvements to India’s communications industry, and could potentially change the way people perceive it.
India is a country full of different cultures and languages, so they change every 100 kilometers you drive for. To get an understanding of the people around you, you should try to speak their language and understand their culture. For brands, it’s important to establish two-way communication with these people.
As a result, they need to tailor their content as per the taste of their audience. For this reason, in the past few decades there has been an increase in demand for public relations specialists in the regional part of India. Regional press is growing quickly and offers a large readership that is aware of the latest happenings.
Statistics indicate that regional PR is growing at a fast pace in India and the regional languages have surpassed English with a 66% share in the overall content consumption. This is mainly because people trust their local newspapers to tell them what is going around.
Regional media chiefly focus on regional-based news, featuring stories relevant to their towns or cities. This is why savvy brands are gravitating towards regional markets ie., Tier II and Tier III cities and small towns more than before and to build strong connections with the people as well as with the region, they need the support of regional PR.
Regional PR Agencies like us frequently communicate brand messages in a conclusive and appealing manner to the regional population. Telling relevant and engaging stories to which the local people can really relate. If a national brand wants to make their products known in a certain region then they could rely on Regional PR agencies rather than handling it internally.
Going regional will help you with high brand engagement and understanding of your intended customers. After all, why should a customer buy your service if they cannot understand what you are offering?
It’s important to have a PR strategy that is specific to the region you’re targeting. For example, If your target audience is the whole of India, it won’t make sense to use only one language. It’s important to tailor your efforts in order to sell your product in a certain place.
To reach your target audience, you need to have region-specific PR strategies to get the attention of the regional people. This will help the brand garner recognition and credibility.
Regional PR agencies will help you set up strong communication with the hyper-local market and at the same time, give your service a local touch to expand your brand value in the region.
Regional PR agencies help the brands to understand what their target audience needs, what they require, and what they like to hear. Adding to the fact that regional PR firms have a better understanding of the ground situation in their respective geographies and can provide deeper insights into localising the outreach strategy.
It is important to mould brand stories to connect with regional India. Storytelling connected to the roots is most certainly to do wonders for a business- they have the power to turn a brand into a legacy, create a robust marketing strategy, with credibility in the long run.
Ultimately, in the regional scenario, there is always a need for a customized communication strategy. Along with the marketing strategies in the rural markets, regional PR helps your brand to focus on specific communication strategies that are required in the different regions of India.
