  • NEXT-GEN ANALYTICS: This planning tool was designed to increase PR efficiency and serve as the “compass” for setting overall PR strategy. We will increase targeting precision by prioritizing the best channels for reaching a specific target audience, thereby focusing outreach on outlets that will move the needle. It strengthens results and ROI by steering the planning process to consider optimal media first, tactics second, to improve overall success. It sparks creative possibilities otherwise not imagined, including unexpected editorial opportunities and strategic partnerships with digital, sports and entertainment properties.
