No doubt about it, Public Relations (PR) has changed even more than traditional marketing in the modern digital world. Of course, marketing prides itself in its IT budget and the tools it uses, and while PR has some of those tools available, the actual function of PR has changed in different and more measurable ways than ever before.
PR is now firmly connected to the word communications. While PR releases are still a part of the function, content creation and a wealth of new earned media have become part of every agency’s offering as a communicator to the marketplace, employees, and investors. Plus, PR has not escaped the need for more in-depth strategic planning and program measurement. Our guest today is Kristin Hege, Founder, and CEO of Convey Communications and she does a deep dive into the exciting new world of PR as a generator of wealth for B2B companies.
