Στην κρίση, η επικοινωνία δείχνει την έξοδο

Five Facts on the Strength of PR

Even as economic conditions continue to be uncertain, there are plenty of signs and sentiments that PR will be a leading contributor to the growth of the overall communications industry in the years ahead. Here are five facts, supported by recent industry research, that point to the continued or rising value of public relations.


1. PR-driven social media tactics are highly effective, even when they are not easy to measure. Forty-seven (47) percent of marketing and PR professionals agree that user reviews and ratings on Web sites are very effective, but just 15 percent believe ROI for those tactics can be accurately measured.

Similarly, 46 percent say blogger or online journalist relations are very effective, but only 11 percent think they can be accurately measured.

2. Traditional PR skills are relevant for communicating in tough times. In facing the troubled economy, many PR professionals find their skills to be relevant, namely for enforcing transparency in business practices (70 percent) and helping the U.S. government communicate problems to the rest of the nation (52 percent).

3. Alternative marketing efforts will lead overall communications growth.
The communications industry is expected to be the third-fastest growing segment of the U.S. economy through 2013, led by alternative marketing segments, such as word-of-mouth marketing, which are expected to grow at an annual rate of 12.6 percent. Total communications spending is expected to grow 3.4 percent annually from 2009 to 2013.
