Better Safe Than Sorry: Your Crisis Communication Plan From A to Z

Crisis management is hardly exclusive to big business. Small firms—especially in the age of the ubiquitous internet—are also able to make use of this knowledge.

The first rule to dealing with any crisis reads that “prevention is better than cure.” A disaster (even a small-scale one) can cost the company a lot—from lost sales and compensation to the time of those who are handling the crisis and finally to the “unmeasurable” damage to the reputation. It is therefore better to have the procedures to prevent a crisis in place than to cope with it later.

You can find them in our e-book, which was prepared together with Michelle Garrett, a renowned PR expert and blogger.
