The digital era’s new consumer demands a new approach to PR Inbound PR is the handbook that can transform your agency’s business. Today’s customer is fundamentally different, and traditional PR strategies are falling by the wayside. Nobody wants to feel “marketed to;” we want to make our own choices based on our own research and experiences online. When problems arise, we demand answers on social media, directly engaging the company in front of a global audience. We are the most empowered, sophisticated customer base in the history of PR, and PR professionals must draw upon an enormous breadth of skills and techniques to serve their clients’ interests. Unfortunately, those efforts are becoming increasingly ephemeral and difficult to track using traditional metrics. This book merges content and measurement to give today’s PR agencies a new way to build brands, evaluate performance and track ROI. The ability to reach the new consumer, build the relationship, and quantify the ROI of PR services allows you to develop an inbound business and the internal capabilities to meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding client. In this digital age of constant contact and worldwide platforms, it’s the only way to sustainably grow your business and expand your reach while bolstering your effectiveness on any platform. This book shows you what you need to know, and gives you a clear framework for putting numbers to reputation. Build brand awareness without “marketing to” the audience Generate more, higher-quality customer or media leads Close the deal and nurture the customer or media relationship Track the ROI of each stage in the process Content is the name of the game now, and PR agencies must be able to prove their worth or risk being swept under with obsolete methods.

Dartnell s Public Relations Handbook

One of the most important trends in recent years has been the integration of public relations into the marketing mix. No longer do corporations view it as a separate, narrow, objective tactic -- a tactic that is isolated from other marketing activities. Today, most marketers understand that public relations must be linked with other marketing disciplines. They recognize that the planning and implementation of a public relations program must harmonize with overall marketing objectives. It is no longer enough for a PR agency executive to be a great press release writer or to establish terrific media contacts. Today, many PR duties are often performed by non-PR personnel. "Dartnell's Public Relations Handbook" has been designed to guide the individual who does not perform PR duties on a daily basis, but who needs to coordinate PR efforts as one of many assigned tasks. Inexperienced PR personnel will use the handbook as a "guide" to coordinate PR efforts. The experienced PR practitioner will use this handbook as a reference tool of new techniques and strategies to help him or her excel in his or her current job. The new 4th edition includes: -- All-new case studies. -- An updated and expanded chapter on Crisis PR. -- A new series of "how-to" chapters, including: how to write a press release, develop a media kit, build a media list, develop media contacts, use the phone and fax most effectively, speak to the media, etc. -- A new chapter on how to work with a PR firm -- how to select the agency that is right for your needs, how to get the most out of your agency, and your responsibilities as a client in the PR agency partnership.
