Four PR Trends in 2024

In the dynamic world of PR, this year promises a wave of new and exhilarating trends that are set to redefine the landscape. Join us in exploring four trends below!

Balancing AI Usage

As our understanding of AI deepens and it's potential to enhance various aspects of businesses becomes clearer, we've embraced its integration into many of our work processes. The benefits associated with AI implementation include improved efficiency, advanced analytics, and innovative solutions. The synergy between human expertise and AI capabilities is proving to be a transformative force, ushering in a new era of possibilities in our professional endeavors. On the flip side, PR professionals must balance the power that AI holds with keeping communications personal, authentic and in connection with target audiences -- an important focus throughout 2024 and beyond.

Influencer Marketing Continues to Thrive 

Influencer marketing grew rapidly in 2023, and 2024 promises to continue that trend. Some brands choose influencer marketing as their main strategy fueling this growth and inviting new influencers to emerge with specific content focuses. Influencer marketing and PR go hand-in-hand, and agencies, including us, will continue to find the best way to story-tell through a multi-channel approach.

Marketing Brew shared some interesting predictions in THIS article. Since 2020, influencers have been mainly online and behind a screen, but experts are expecting more in-person influencer activations, creating more community around this space. Experts are also predicting more employees of these companies to be put in front of the camera as their own “in-house” influencers. As influencer rates continue to rise, companies will start to get creative on how they can create an influencer impact without spending thousands, reaping the benefits of influencer marketing.

LinkedIn Emerges as a Social Media Player 

The influence of social media remains a potent force in PR, and over the past year, this dynamic has notably expanded to platforms like LinkedIn. Businesses are increasingly recognizing LinkedIn as a powerful tool for strategic content sharing. This shift goes beyond mere trendiness; it represents a deliberate effort to construct robust professional networks, amplify brand exposure, and magnetize new business opportunities and prospective employees. 

The multifaceted nature of LinkedIn as a professional space positions it as an ideal arena for businesses not only to bolster their online presence but also to enhance their credibility among a more discerning audience. As we navigate the evolving landscape of digital communication, the role of social media, particularly on platforms like LinkedIn, emerges as a vital and transformative component within the contemporary PR landscape.
