Consumer reliance on technology and addiction to social media have changed the way we search, share, and shop. Traditional push marketing and has fallen to the wayside as we become more and more selective about the types of information we consume. In this ever-changing environment, traditional public relations cannot stand alone. While public relations is essential in shaping messaging and establishing relationships, professionals must leverage social media tools and search marketing best practices to ensure that their message is heard.

As partner and head of public relations at 451 Marketing, Tom Lee will offer his unique insight on the importance of fully integrated campaigns in this free webinar. Using examples and case studies, Tom will teach attendees how to connect with customers by controlling how, when, and where their key demographics view their messages and, ultimately, perceive their brand.
