Breaking Down the Silos Between Marketing and PR

Speakers | Speaker Preview | Access | Questions | Who Should Attend?

At PR News’ April 23 webinar, our experts will share with you best practices for breaking down the barriers between marketing and PR for the benefit of the organization. Although marketing and public relations meet different needs, they have to work together. The best brands and companies find a way to align the two, and you can as well.

Marketing and PR each play substantive roles in accomplishing your company’s goals and objectives. These major external functions share common ground with regard to publicity and consumer and media relations, but they remain distinct. Marketing traditionally has focused on driving sales to customers while PR has traditionally been geared toward building reputation and trust. PR and marketing campaigns are also measured by different metrics.

At this Webinar, you'll learn how to:

  • Understand the discrete functions of public relations and marketing
  • Learn what a CMO thinks about on a daily basis
  • Create an environment where public relations and marketing practitioners can work together
  • Communicate about the new ways the two functions overlap today
  • Solve problems when PR and marketing disagree
  • Start a dialog that is complimentary, not confrontational
  • Specify who is responsible for the different parts of communications strategies
  • Define who owns what on social media
  • Keep the ultimate goal of satisfying customers top of mind
