A vital piece of every promotional strategy is public relations, especially when promoting events for a company. Plenty of the time local media outlets tend to target a local community, which means media coverage in local publications for an event will result in the event reaching the right people. However, companies that don’t have the right approach to PR will end up wasting their time without the benefits of positive media coverage. Additionally, there already are plenty of events both locally and globally in most locations, and without strong PR any company’s event will get lost in the crowd. Additionally,... Read More >

2020-08-30 by Ronn Torossian
