Publicity consists of articles in the media including newspapers, radio and TV, forums and social media or blogs. When talking about largely known companies, such as McDonalds, bad publicity can only have a negative effect.
At the moment, McDonalds is famous all over the world and people are aware of it research shows that even a two-year child recognises the McDonalds logo.
This is the reason why negative publicity can do no good, but only lower the number of customers and damage McDonalds reputation. Patrick Barwise, a professor at London Business School claims that negative publicity may generate a buzz and increase short-term sales, but overall, it will damage the brand by actually increasing the problem they are currently facing.
Empirical studies found that negative information is capable of affecting consumers' beliefs and attitudes.
In fact, it has been shown that a single item of negative information is capable of neutralizing five similar pieces of positive information Richey and Fortin As the organisation I represent is McDonalds, I chose a case study which proves that not all publicity is good publicity. The so-called "McLibel trial" was a British court case involving libel, with important implications for public relations professionals and company management.
Due to all this publicity, this trial was a public relations disaster for McDonald's. The judge finally agreed with several of the arguments presented by the two campaigners, but Steel and Morris had failed to prove all their points and so the court ruled that they had indeed libelled McDonald's.
The judge awarded damages of sixty thousands pounds. This case harmed the image of McDonalds and tied up management resources for years. Its executives were made to look foolish and the case also cost the company many millions of dollars.
In addition, all this negative publicity lead to a decrease in their sales, which clearly proves that not all publicity is good publicity.

A substance can be natural but it may violate a religious or dietary restriction or it may cause allergic reactions.

Furthermore, customers are still more important, as they bring their money in by buying food. So, why would shareholders be more important than customers, if without customers a company is not able to survive?
Shareholders represent just the support for the whole business to start and develop. It is interesting to acknowledge the balance between the degree of importance, just by reflecting on the following question: Companies need impressive numbers of customers, so in order to attract more of them, they should be aware of their increased importance and invest more time in figuring out ways to appeal the targeted audiences.
The company also cashed in well on trends like coffee and smoothies.
