Everyone likes a freebie. This free ebook full of measurable PR objectives will enable you to prove the worth of your campaigns to clients, by Heather Baker.
Like many of you, I learned PR on the job and it was only 3 years into my career, when I set up TopLine, that I realised that the purpose of a PR campaign is not to generate coverage. The purpose of a PR campaign is to address a business challenge, which means any successful PR campaign has to start with objective setting.
So, we’ve trawled through oodles of PR case studies and created a list of 31 measurable PR objectives that we hope will be useful to you in designing campaigns that matter to businesses.
Here’s the first 10 to get your campaign measurement started:
