The corporate image notion that is cared about by a number of corporates in recent years, aimed to introduce corporates visually until effects of globalization emerge. The corporate image notion which only aimed to introduce the corporates visually to target group and came up with the idea of creating logo, emblem, fond and name for corporates, starts to lose its importance by the years where consumers demand more detailed information about the corporate in a competitive market conditions. Because, it is not possible to inform target groups about the identity of corporate, mission and vision of the corporate and how it behaves consumers. Today, it has completely changed. Anymore, corporates should communicate with target groups and stakeholders directly, transparent and in a friendly manner. The aim of this study is to investigate the direction of effects of the public relation practices on corporate image and also examine the possibility of creation of a strong corporate image by managing target groups’ perception.
