By Team - Doble Group, LLC 2015-01-26


Public relations (PR) is about managing reputation. A PR manager is in charge of overseeing how a person or company is viewed by customers, prospects or the media. Back in the days when social media was not so popular or common it might have been an easier task. Before the boom of social media PR Management was handled differently. The time of response was longer because of the channels the information traveled through.

Today with the popularity of the internet, the interaction time between the companies or public figures and the media is very short, it is virtually live, PR officers have to act as quick as possible to prevent the damage of the reputation of their clients. It is also very common that companies and public figures interact directly with the general public through their social media pages and mass e-mails.

Salesforce offers impressive solutions for companies that want to handle their own PR management and also for professional PR managers. Assuming that your company manages its own PR, here are a few of the many solutions that salesforce offers.
