You’ve spent major dollars and hours to get your new website running, what do you want next? Traffic!
As a savvy marketer, you know that the three most important traffic sources are: search engine, direct, and referral traffic. To obtain more search engine traffic, you can employ Search Engine Optimization (SEO) campaigns to generate organic traffic, and Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns for paid traffic.
The question is: which is better?
For those who are unsure about whether to invest in either PR or advertising, the answer isn't one or the other. It’s both. PR works best in unison with other marketing strategies, strengthening credibility and branding and serving as the gatekeeper for reputation. The process is easily integrated since PR outreach has evolved to include digital communications along with media relations.
