In this webinar, we’ll prepare you for the Association for the Measurement and Evaluation of Communications (AMEC) Measurement Week, Sept. 15–19!

Nearly everyone agrees on the value of PR measurement, but putting it into action can be a challenge.

You’ll identify approaches that can be applied at all levels, and understand how to put them into action. You’ll learn how to:

• Set measureable objectives.
• Use research to create benchmarks and inform strategy.
• Evaluate PR programs.
• Put measurement into action via lessons learned from a case study.
