How Can PR Data Inform and Enhance Brand Storytelling? 

Data is a powerful tool that allows brands to make informed business decisions and better engage audiences through brand storytelling.

Data allows PR professionals to optimize communications in real time and legitimize their brand’s communications. The combination of numeric data and relationship data empowers organizations to take these insights to the next level. In speaking with consumers or reporters, you can go to your audience and gain feedback on what they want to see more of or what resonates with them. Practices like customer surveys allow you to pull together insights from these audiences to determine how to move forward with information.
