    Webinar: Blogger Relations

    Blogs have become a huge platform for brands to promote their products and campaign reach can be amplified through specialist, engaged audiences. Bloggers still run predominantly on passion more than profit however, and sustainable relationships are not built by sending the usual media release. Balancing editorial and advertorial is essential. This webinar discusses what works and what doesn’t work in blogger outreach and how to get the right balance of editorial and advertorial for your brand or issue. More details to come.

    Video Content for Web

    Content, content and more content.

    Back in 2013, 'content' certainly was the buzz word for that period. But we argue that content has always been king. You can trace origins of content marketing right back through the ages. Whether it was via a Bayeux Tapestry or a recruitment poster during World War II, humanity has always been influenced by words and images we put in front of each other.

    Where we are today is no different, yes, the channels may have changed and old form poster campaigns may not be the main form of communicating in 2016, yet the message and how it is delivered remains the same.

    This session will bolster your skillsets around taking video content - one of the most sought after forms of content - and show you how to make yours relevant and accessible to the masses.

    Think YouTube, VICE and Periscope here.

    Measurement & Evaluation

    September 2016

    At the core, a robust measurement and evaluation (M&E) framework is the only way to demonstrate the value you bring to your clients or companies. The world in which we practice PR has changed dramatically. As economies faltered during the GFC, businesses began to scrutinise costs and demand more tangible business results from all aspects of their organisations, including PR. In many cases PR was unable to provide evidence-based, credible results or demonstrate return on investment.

    2016 National Conference

    November 2016

    Each year the PRIA National Conference stands as the premier public relations and communication event in Australia, attracting attendees from around the country as well as our friends and colleagues from across the Tasman and further afield in the greater Asia Pacific region. In the past few years, we've seen the conference travel from Melbourne to Adelaide, Brisbane and Hobart. For 2016, it's all about Perth, Western Australia, and plans are already afoot to build another stellar conference program.

    This year's theme: Communication Innovation

    Change is a defining word of our decade. From our climate, to our technology, to consumer behaviour, to our governments and our jobs, being able to keep pace with change has become a part of everyday life. Public relations and communication, for better or worse, is on the front lines, managing constant upheaval and disruption to the lives of people, the machinations of institutions and the operation of organisations. Innovation in the way we communicate is paramount to our survival.
