Proving the value of PR

It’s always best to start at the start so we thought we’d begin by testing the value of PR. Does it make a real difference to brands?

That’s why we asked 100 people to review a mock technology podcast that discussed the issue of audio quality in headphones. At the end, reviewers were asked to choose from a selection of headphones – one of which was endorsed by a third party audio expert within the podcast, and one that was promoted during an advert break. Choosing the former was taken as a ‘point’ for PR, the latter a point for advertising.
