PR news round-up (11-15 March)
Here’s a round-up of PR news this week, including the latest CisionMeets… webinar, a white paper examining integrated campaigns and new hires at Launch and John Lewis.
CisionMeets… The Book of Man
Men’s media has undergone a shift. The lads’ mag is well and truly dead, while there is an increasing backlash against titles which promote images of topless men with bulging muscles.
In their place, publications aimed at men are exploring a new type of masculinity and examining the issues which seem inherent with the gender. With this in mind, our latest CisionMeets… webinar will focus on one of these publications; The Book of Man.
The title aims to be a support network offering both advice and inspiration to men as the expectations placed on them by society evolve.
Using a team of top writers and experts, as well as inspirational columnists, the website investigates what it is to be a man by questioning masculinity, creating debate around the issues men face, and exploring new, progressive ways to live.
Editor Martin Robinson will explain why he set up the website, which areas of new masculinity it covers and how PRs can work with the title over the course of the webinar.
Creating resonant integrated campaigns by using Earned Media Management
Cision’s latest white paper examines how the integration of marketing disciplines is changing the way campaigns are created and executed. It will discuss why communicators need to start using data like their colleagues in paid and owned media.
Finally, it will explore why adopting Earned Media Management and implementing its four tenets will allow comms professionals to demonstrate that their role is a business driver rather than an expense, as has already been demonstrated by colleagues in owned and paid sectors.
