There is a lot Scott Vaughan, CMO at Integrate, can share about the importance of building an effective influencer relations strategy that results in a significant increase in meaningful social engagements and one-on-one discussions. So it was a no brainer that he would lead PAN’s latest session of PANU, a knowledge-sharing training and development program that PAN holds each week for its employees.
Scott works closely with customers and partners on a daily basis – he recognizes the power of real-time integrated marketing and leveraging mutually beneficial relationships. Each small engagement creates a personal touch point that can strengthen into a deeper relationship and benefit an organization in a huge way, whether it be placement in a great feature article, a new speaking opportunity at a topnotch conference or even transform into a new customer opportunity.
It takes a true partnership to effectively pull off influencer relations, Scott explained, and we at PAN agree. It is a critical element to any PR program, especially when working with high growth companies trying to establish themselves or if there is a need to pivot positioning and transform an organization’s story. Here are some of the main takeaways from Scott’s session and how you can make the most out of each influencer relations program.
