Join Mickey G. Nall, APR, Fellow PRSA in a lively presentation and discussion on 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 and can often be utilized 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. Nall will energize, entertain and help attendees understand the public relations value of finding, identifying and utilizing influencer engagement for your organization and clients as you plan and build strategic public relations programs.
