Public and Analyst Relations | MKTG.X402

In today’s world, the concept of mindshare is crucial to building successful public relations and analyst relations campaigns. Because customers have access to more information about a company, there is an increasing amount of public discussion about its activities, products and services. Without mindshare, marketing efforts can become misguided, superior technology fails to be adopted, and even the most promising companies fail to blossom. Yet winning the mindshare battle is more challenging than meets the eye.
