By | Brand, Content, Conversation, People, PR, PRorigins, Strategy | No Comments

As we reach the end of the year, it’s natural to reflect on what has been achieved. And this December especially is pertinent as my business reaches the end of my financial year and first full year in business.

The year one journey has been as exciting as it has been tough and yet, having exceeded my own expectations, I am even more determined to grow and achieve much more in the year to come.

One post that is increasingly used on social media is the inspirational quote post.

From LinkedIn to Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook, some people say they’re annoying and shouldn’t be used; others highlight them as a key tactic to boost engagement.

Being Passionate in PR

“I’m really pleased to have met you because I sensed that you are hard working, passionate about what you do, driven and great at getting results. I know you can do traditional PR but you can also bring something new to the table as well.”

What a wonderful statement to receive. Having been in PR for over 10 years, the passion and drive is still there – especially with the new forms of digital, search engine and social media opportunities, which, whilst each present new challenges, but also offer great avenues to influence a client’s target audience.

More people today are using mobile devices for tasks that they used to rely on their desktops.  And there’s no doubt they are visiting your website from  smartphones, tablets, and other devices so it makes sense anyway to accommodate this ever-growing group of visitors.

Yours in Content

For 2015 and the Content Marketing Institute, the results are in – UK Marketers have spoken and content marketing is here to stay, but has a different outlook from 2014.
