FPRA Ocala Chapter
Join Mickey G. Nall, APR, CPRC, Fellow PRSA, in a lively presentation and discussion of the role of public relations and influencer engagement. Marketers continue to add budget and expectations on how influencer engagement can build a brand, yet often neglect to understand that it is essentially a public relations tactic to grow awareness and can often be used as a key opinion leadership tool for organizations. Your organization’s influencer engagement strategy should work with your content strategy to build awareness for new products and services, develop third-party endorsements around issues of concern for your client or organization and amplify your messages to deliver high impact, quality public relations programming.
