As a Manchester B2B PR agency, Metamorphic PR launched at a time of immense debate about the meaning and methods of both public relations and marketing communications in the UK and elsewhere.
This debate – conducted across the media, events and independent and corporate blogs throughout 2013 – has informed the directions that public relations practitioners and marketers are now taking in 2014. Above all, public relations and marketing professionals have recognised the imperative to move with the times while retaining the best practices and approaches of the past. And both professions see how critical it is to demonstrate value in a way that communications and marketing managers can measure and justify to the C-suite.
The top 5 PR and marketing communications blog posts on Metamorphic PR’s website in 2013 provide a flavour of what was important then and what continues to be important as we embark on another business year:
