Gone are the days when you could plan out your marketing and public relations programs well in advance and release them on your timetable.
Lanham, MD (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
"Wake up, its revolution time!" wrote David Meerman Scott in his new book Real-Time Marketing & PR. "Gone are the days when you could plan out your marketing and public relations programs well in advance and release them on your timetable. It's a real-time world now, and if you're not engaged, then you're on your way to marketplace irrelevance."
Indeed on the heels of social media, the world is operating in "real time" which brings both new challenges and new opportunities. This is why Vocus (NASDAQ: VOCS) is hosting a free Webinar with the person who literally wrote the book on the concept.
