The average PR practitioner can probably name most of the tools in his or her proverbial toolbox.
But in this era of online accessibility, one’s toolbox should be so full of useful tools that it can’t be closed.


Online tools are a go-to strategy for earned media to help support a client’s or brand’s business objectives – whether that is raising awareness, driving traffic to a site, generating sales of a product or service or simply building brand loyalty via deeper engagement.

Join us on June 18 for a comprehensive overview of the top PR tools, the value for the PR professional and how we can  successfully use them to boost brand presence.

Free online tools featured:  
• Storify
• Conspire
• Picktochart
• Compete and more 

The program will also offer a deep dive with Flipboard, the world’s most popular personal magazine. Flipboard  gives users  a single place to keep up on the topics, news and events they care about.  Flipboard users can follow their favorite sources from around the world and then collect stories, images and videos into their own magazines – sharing items that reflect their interests, express their perspectives or are simply things they want to read later.
