Nicky Crichton, Brand Communications Lead, said: “The symbiotic relationship between brands, their agency partners and media owners is ever more apparent with all parties needing to ensure strong content performance a solid content distribution plan, measured against robust reach and engagement metrics.
“The creation of content that builds thought leadership for clients is another area of growth and a key trend this year, possibly linked to the global loss of trust in media as an institution, and the rise in the trust of ‘experts’ in their given field. Whilst the loss of trust in media represents an ongoing challenge given the irrevocable integration between PR, media and brands, this trend opens up a host of opportunities for senior level clients and brands to share valuable knowledge and insights with an engaged audience and become a trusted source of information.”
“The world of analytics, data, and PR have always been intertwined but never more so than now, and in using purpose built analytical tools, the team here is well placed to help clients unearth the meaningful consumer insights that inform behaviour changing campaigns.”
