Public relations and PR. What are your strategies?
 
Is PR More Than Good First Impressions?

Spoiler alert the answer is yes. Public relations are as delicate as any other relationship building practice. +OnTheGrid provides some great insight in their article "What is Public relations. The article notes that public relation stories regarding startup companies, non profits and other business are separate from traditional advertising. It focuses more on the the reputation on the company as a whole and building a reputation as opposed to the direct sale. The article goes more in depth even discussing "Avoiding a Public Relations Nightmare". Take a look at the full article and let me know what does Public Relations mean to you.

Success in any undertaking is usually judged on paper, but sometimes, numbers and data aren’t enough to paint the whole picture. Marketers are naturally inclined to rely on evaluative statistics to assess their progress, but there is a catch.

There are things that statistics cannot measure. That is why business marketers should avoid being complacent on the current progress of their campaigns.
There are things that statistics cannot measure, such as your marketing team’s determination to reach your lead generation goals.

Does Snail Mail Still make an Impact?

According to this listicle of 25 small business post card templatesyour customer's mailbox is one of the most powerful ways to market your business and build relationships. I suppose it is worth noting that direct mail is more personal than a press release or email blast but how effective is it? For it to be effective it needs to be memorable and unique. What are your thoughts though? Is snail mail still an effective way to build and maintain customer relations?

According to 2016 Content Preferences Survey, 73% of B2B purchase decision respondents viewed a case study during their research. If that number won't convince you why should you opt in prioritizing case studies in your strategy, then I don't know what will.

#casestudy   #b2b  
Case studies are more than a content to share. It is a testimony of how effective your service is. Businesses should understand why its important.

+David K. William I have just signed up to Medium and have started by perusing the various articles within the categories I selected.

I hope to have my first article on by the end of the weekend.

Great reads and mostly well presented. A colleague of mine has posted three articles and his exposure as a writer has doubled.

There are numerous articles which are linked to the writers websites, eBooks, etc., so it does also appear to have business benefits

So yes, I would recommend it.
