  • The ‘Digital Difference’Digital PR is… Easier Faster Cheaper More measurable More democratic More global! Less controlled! Permanent! Subject to the same laws! (or is it?)
  • Traditional marketing:Interrupting peoples daily lives with messages about what to buy, to thinkor to feel.Campaigns of influence, dictated by the available spend, trying to set theagenda for any chosen "target audience".Its not that people are switching off from marketing, its that they are takingit into their own hands.Today:Super-connected citizens dictate the agenda, they dont follow it.Consumers no longer ask "What do you have to say to me?" but "What canyou do for me?“The successful organisation will listen and learn in real-time.Digital product will emerge as the output - placing technology at the core tocreate innovative tools that make a tangible difference to consumers lives.The New Landscape
