David Chapman, CEO and founder of 919 Marketing, a Holly Springs, NC full service public relations and marketing firm, has been featured in the national press as a thought leader on finding skilled workers in a changing economic climate. Chapman, who is often sought after as a spokesperson on marketing and public relations, spoke with the Associated Press about the challenges small business owners face when filling positions that require varied skill sets. The story ran in the Associated Press (AP) and was picked up by dozens of media outlets across the country.
Newspapers such as the Washington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle ran the story focusing on issues companies face with a skill shortage in the labor force. Chapman was asked how 919 Marketing handles the ever changing marketing world that requires employees to master traditional public relations and social media.
Chapman introduced the idea of teaming young workers more adept at social media with more experienced employees trained in the art of long form storytelling that leads to traditional media coverage.
Chapman says he’s built a powerful marketing agency in today’s environment by teaming-up social media and public relations experts to develop winning campaigns that maximize client results.
