Today, good public relations entails much more than blindly blanketing the media (and bloggers) with information that’s of dubious value to begin with. And more often than not, it entails a strong element of building and managing online community. In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn the three key elements of an effective 21st century “social PR” strategy, and how it differs from “old” PR
  • Know which time-tested research and analytical methods you should still use in the 21st century
  • Understand why talking at people isn’t effective, and how to effectively use today’s popular social media platforms to talk with them
  • Experience real-time social engagement through workshop exercises and hands-on participation
  • Understand how to effectively incorporate measurement, so that it validates and improves your programs and, therefore, your business
