As the 2017 Legal Marketing Association Annual Conference kicks off in Las Vegas, a series of pre-conference sessions is underway, including a program on breakthroughs in public relations, content and communications with a presentation by Poston Communications.
Dave Poston, president and CEO of Poston Communications, joins Allison McClain Joyce, director of media relations for Nixon Peabody LLP, and Jessica G. Sharp, principal at Maven Communications for a session titled “The PR Measurement Challenge: How to Overcome It and Identify Success” at 2:30 PT Monday, March 27.
Public relations measurement can be challenging due to limited resources, competing goals and other factors. In this session, attendees will learn how to turn measurements into opportunities to focus strategies and find improvement. In-house and agency professionals will present case studies, templates and best practices to encourage a shift in perspective.
Topics for discussion include:
- Defining success by linking efforts directly to business development, firm client or other goals.
- Best practices for measurement.
- New tools and technologies.
- Approaching measurement as a continuous process that needs adjustment.
