From disseminating information that flows away to disseminating stories that remain in your memory and want to be told to someone = Public Relations 3.0
Cross Media Marketing Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Tetsuya Minobe, hereinafter referred to as Cross Media Marketing) is a company that provides corporate managers, marketing managers, and PR/public relations staff with “memorable and conveying information.” The seminar “Public relations strategy based on stories that makes you want to go to public relations” will be broadcast online from 16:00 on Thursday, September 28, 2023.
[Image 1:×628.jpg] Thoughts on holding the seminar
Digital activities have become more important than analog activities in public relations activities. On the other hand, there is an overflow of information, and the current situation has even arisen in which “if you just send out information, it will flow away and be difficult to notice.”
Behind the information transmitted by companies = “information originating from people who take action” lies the thoughts, passion, and constant efforts of those who take action.
A story that incorporates the thoughts, passion, and actions behind a new product or service will remain in your memory and make you want to tell someone about it. And from there, realizations, discoveries, and fateful encounters are born. In the coming era, it will be important to implement stories in public relations activities. Analog and essential public relations activities (1.0), public relations activities with digitalization (2.0), and public relations activities that also implement stories (3.0). By disseminating information that will be forgotten and conveying stories that people will want to tell, further possibilities and expansion will be created for public relations activities.
Purpose of the seminar
The business manager who is developing the service will explain the importance of communicating stories, what methods are available, and how they can be used to do so.
