PR Experts as Influencers: How social media has changed the PR landscape forever - and what it means for you

This topic will explore the importance of PR professionals using their connections, relationships and influences to help positively influence others or drive awareness (or directly drive customers) for their clients. Learn how to drive your online footprint so that reporters (and other constituents) might see some greater value in working with you - or at least respect, listen to you and trust that you've got good things to share.

Avoiding the Placement Crash

The Council of Public Relations Firms invites you to attend a free, one hour web seminar that will explain how to extend the life of PR campaigns through various online tools; how firms can grow their social media business through community manager program and how to build grassroots expertise.

The discussion, led by social media and word of mouth expert James Clark, will focus on how to avoid what he calls "The Placement Crash," by using online tools such as webinars, live chat, special report downloads and surveys to capture and measure offline to online media impact.
