TORONTO, Dec. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - It is an exciting time to be an agency-based PR professional. New technologies, integration of marketing and communications roles and a changing media landscape are combining to take agency-client relationships in new directions.
To remain competitive and to provide value in today's world, PR agencies are bringing more to their clients than earned media mentions.
Understanding client objectives is more important than ever
Never has it been more important to get to the heart of your clients' objectives. Pursuit of earned media is usually a means to an end, and it's not the only way to reach the same goal.
"Don't assume you know what the client wants, and don't assume the client knows what they need," explains Arantha Royce, inside sales manager at PR Newswire.
