Before digitization, public relations specialists would spread the news via traditional outlets such as newspapers, television or radio. With the rise of the digital age, social media has fundamentally transformed the PR landscape, where brands can leverage their PR through social media channels by telling their story, connecting with their audience, and marketing their product or services. So, how do we engage in social media marketing? How does it help us grow our business and reach our goals? And how do we use social media for PR?
