In a previous blog, we broke some myths of PR, and explained how public relations is more than just writing press releases.

Press releases are still big part of PR and incredibly useful in communicating messages to target audiences. Media releases are not as simple as one might think and there’s lots to consider. In this blog, we will discuss the do’s and don’ts of writing a press release.

Using video in your online marketing strategy

Outdoor marketing: How to get your message across

Outdoor advertising is a highly effective way to promote a product or service and influence potential customers. It allows advertisers to take advantage of extended engagement with audiences in ways other mediums simply cannot match.

Organic reach on social media is unpredictable - there’s no guarantee that your content will appear in the newsfeed of those who like your Facebook page and Twitter is so fast paced that your followers could miss your posts.
