This Week in PR

Weekly links to relevant blog posts, news articles and anything else that catches my attention.

  • Question of the day: How to reach a seemingly disengaged population of young Americans? Land of the free, home of the uninformedIs anyone paying attention to the news anymore?
  • Is branding irrelevant? What do you think?
  • Public Relations and Your Brand: People pay attention to the message, then who it is from. (Resonance is key.)
