The Public Relations Blog
As PR, marketing, and communications employees, your work constantly demands your attention. It doesn’t matter if you're at your favorite coffee shop, the library, or shopping downtown; in this fast-paced industry, you have to act quickly. So, there are many times where you have to finish up some work, send some emails, or post content from a location other than your home or office. That brings up the issue of using unsecured Wi-Fi.

PR is a measurement sport, and you must embrace numbers to prove your success and be competitive.
Many people think of public relations as just crisis management and a simplified form of marketing. For decades, people with an interest in marketing went into PR because they didn’t like math and didn’t want to talk about numbers.
