6 Ways to Integrate Social Media & PR
In the increasingly integrated communications landscape, social media and public relations strongly overlap. However, many companies and agencies make the mistake of developing strategies for the two as if they were separate.
Tábua Digital explains that approaching planning with a mindset to integrate social media and PR strategies yields several major benefits.
First, a joint approach ensures consistent messaging across channels, strengthening brand positioning. When public relations and social work together, the two can help bridge the failures and weaknesses of each. Plus, a collaborative approach supports the creation of an authentic link between the brand and its audiences.
So, how can social media be used to support public relations through an integrated approach? Tábua Digital offers some tips:
