The communications industry is facing a perfect storm of converging forces, from COVID-19 to the rise of influencer marketing and even AI,” explained Forrester’s Jay McBain, principal analyst, channel partnerships and alliances. “As COVID-19 has changed the marketing and advertising calculus for every vendor, the value of finding a strong channel-focused PR person (or firm) is more important than ever.”
