The public relations industry has changed dramatically during the past five or so years. Unfortunately, not all professionals have caught on, or up, to those changes.

I’ve encountered these scenarios too many times to count: More seasoned professionals refuse to budge out of their “this is how we’ve always done it and it works” mentality. Middle of the road professionals understand how PR has changed, but can’t quite figure out how to bring the old together with the new.

content marketing tips

If I had to choose the most important social media theme for 2013, it would be content. Yes, major platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and LinkedIn have all rolled out big updates and changes this year, but great content is the key to success on these and every other social platform. The focus on stellar content has become increasingly important. Create amazing content, and people will love your company and buy your products/services. It seems so obvious, right? So much easier said than done. Amazing content doesn’t just happen. It requires research, planning, strategy, execution and maximization (with more sprinkled in between).
