With a global usership in the billions, social media has become one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Its influence is simply too large to ignore. Here we discuss five ways social media has affected the public relations industry and why PR professionals need to jump on board with the latest trends.
Broadcast interviews can make even the most sophisticated executive uneasy, but they offer the opportunity to deliver messages to a wide audience quickly and simultaneously. Since television is a visual medium, your physical demeanor and style are just as important as what you say. With the right preparation and approach, everyone can be an effective on-camera communicator.
One reason direct mail has remained so effective is that it’s tangible. So, you want to make sure that what you send cuts through the clutter, both in term of messaging and visual appeal––and that you reach the audience you want at a price that doesn’t break the budget.
Your website often forms the first impression of you and your business––it’s your front door. What does your website say about your business? Is it antiquated? Slow? Clunky? Here are three signs it’s time for a refresh, and how we can help.
From SEO to PPC, digital marketing terms can look like alphabet soup to the untrained eye. However, search engines, like Google, are where people turn for information in our digital age, so it’s important to understand how they work, and how to use them to your advantage.
A successful marketing strategy employs a variety of media––including paid, earned, owned and shared––in a combination that drives the results you want. At Market Mentors, we can help design, develop and deploy the best plan for your business.
Building Teamwork In The Workplace
It’s generally known in the business world that happier employees do better work. When team members are satisfied and energized, they’ll produce stronger results and put in the extra effort needed to meet their goals. However, too many executives believe that happiness is a function of salary, benefits or job title, rather than considering less obvious factors that contribute to an employee’s happiness in the workplace.
