A guide on how to succeed in the podcast industry
In recent years, podcasts have gotten popular due to the ease and convenience of listening. And there’s a podcast on just about any topic you may be interested in!

It might seem that blogging is outdated thanks to vlogging, but companies still choose to utilize blogging because it’s more convenient and can enhance their online reputation and SEO.
Interest, attract, and persuade your audience by using a call to action.

A guide to avoiding bad meetings
As Dave Grady mentions in his TED Talk, there’s a global epidemic called MAS, which stands for “mindless accept syndrome.” A symptom of this is, in Grady’s words, “an involuntary reflex in which a person accepts a meeting invitation without even thinking why.” All jokes aside, the subject of the TED Talk is something PR professionals should take into consideration.
Many of us subconsciously accept invitations to meetings without even asking what the meeting is about. No one wants to sit in a meeting for hours without knowing what the game plan is, especially if we have other projects to work on and deadlines to meet.
PR and social media go hand-in-hand
