10 Yetis Examples of Good and Bad Public Relations - Monday 10th September 2012
Lloyd here, starting the week with the good and bad PR vibe.
Bad parenting gets the bad PR vote here. Peaches Geldof had a 'bit of a blooper' when she tipped her baby out of a pram during a stroll in London. She was quick to blame the poorly maintained London footpath, taking to Twitter to state that the 'London pavements are SO dangerous!' This might have been given some more weight as a defence had she not been on the phone at the time. The fact that she managed to carry on the phone conversation during the whole incident only made it look worse.
Bad parenting might be a tad strong (potentially it could happen to anyone) but it certainly doesn't look good when your baby ends up in a tangled pile of blankets on the street as you grope to pick him up whilst keeping your phone firmly fixed in the crook of your neck. Priorities Peaches. Just try not to dangle him off a balcony next.
Primark are bucking the economic trend here and have seen a strong rise in sales with a total increase of 15%. Their ethical approach and cheap prices makes them popular with the average high street shopper. By buying in bulk, they keep prices low. The quality might not be great and the majority of clothes don't last for years, but at those prices it's no big deal to replace them. Plus you'll always have new threads to show off to friends and keep the Facebook pictures fresh. Primark have firmly established themselves in the public consciousness and are going from strength to strength. Primarni done good.
