PR Newser has a post about integrating public relations and advertising, about how that needs to happen in light of the new digital communications scene and  “clients’ demands to do more with less.”

Well, maybe so, but values are at stake — marketing’s need for sales could clash with PR’s relational values unless, and we need to say it, relational values are kept foremost.

This is an emerging conjunction in which the aim is everything — the aim being to keep customers pleased and satisfied rather than simply “sold” at a given junction.
