WVU Marketing Communications Today

Public Affairs tactics add government resources to your arsenal

September 18, 2019


In our roles as communicators, we seek to help our clients and organizations solve problems or enhance their image with purpose. That can include seeking funding, increasing positive visibility and motivating key audiences to act. IMC and DMC professionals might be surprised to know the multiple benefits of working with government. This podcast will explore recent real-world case studies and the many benefits organizations have achieved by tapping government resources and opportunities. Results speak volumes -- grants awarded; third-party validation of products, services and programs; successful nominations of federal advisory committee members; earned media placements; social media support; and the receipt of proactive ideas from government officials.
