Roses are Red, Violets Are Blue, We Wrote a Blog About Why We Love PR, How ‘Bout You?
It’s the season of roses, chocolates, teddy bears and romance. Yes, Valentine’s Day is here at last, which means everyone has just one thing on their mind: tech PR.
The rush of working a client event. The feeling of getting a great piece of coverage. The thrill of winning a big award for a campaign. The excitement when you manage to get your industry keyword into the first 100 words of a blog post about Valentine’s Day.
There’s a lot to love about our work, so we figured that, in celebration of the season, we’d ask folks around the March office to share the moments that warmed their hearts. Here’s what they had to say:
“It’s nice when a client contact gets excited about your work. But, it’s even cooler when someone at the company who doesn’t work in the marketing department is excited about coverage and feels proud to work at their company because of all the buzz a product or initiative that they worked on, and that March helped to promote, is getting,” – Steph Jackman, Account Supervisor
“I love most everything about working in PR; but, working in tech, I most love being on the cutting edge of new innovations. When we’re introduced to a new client or prospect, and get the chance to learn about how they’re going to disrupt the way we work, live or play, that’s when I think, ‘wow, my job is so cool!’” – Meredith L. Eaton, Vice President
“I love that no two days are ever the same when it comes to social media. Whether it’s changing trends or platforms, there is always something new to learn. I also love being able to tell stories through social media. Engaging with audiences in real-time makes the storytelling aspect of our jobs as Communications professionals very real.” – Caroline Black, Director of Digital Strategy
“It’s the best feeling in the world when I finally stop agonizing over word choice, hit “publish” and I start seeing the RTs, Likes and comments roll in” – Samantha Hird, Senior Account Executive
“I love that PR is constantly evolving. Every single day is different and inspiring!” – Cheryl Gale, Managing Director
