“Sponsors are leaving because they don’t want to be affiliated with a controversy. Because the Clippers’ management has yet to determine what if any disciplinary action will be brought upon Mr. Sterling, they are leaving to save face. If the Clippers want to avoid this they need to act swiftly against Mr. Sterling.” -Hunter Frederick

Chelsea Tidswell's curator insight, September 24, 2013 1:41 AM

PR and advertising is a huge part of IMC and with new PR being available, this makes its easier for companies to communicate with their consumers much easier. One of the biggest things highlighted in this article is how much easier it is to measure the success rate of PR and advertising. It is simple to see how many new followers a company has on twitter or how many likes they have gained on Facebook. Back in the day, it was hard to measure the amount of people that were receiving the advertisement. Also with using PR in the new style, it makes reaching younger consumers much easier than when you place an advertisement in a newspaper or magazine. This article truly shows how important PR and advertising is to IMC and the best ways that a successful campaign can be accomplished. 

Tegan Thomas's comment, September 25, 2013 2:38 AM
Too true Chelsea! PR is such a significant role in the way people get the ads for products. There is also a significant amount of people that do not use social media yet and they could be missing out on some of the companies that only use social media for their advertising and they are missing a whole demographic.
Janis Wu's comment, September 25, 2013 3:52 AM
Great insight, Chelsea! Since you have mentioned that it is more easier for companies to get direct measurements from their advertising campaigns. And also, using these new PR strategies easily benefits the target customers and current customers via exposing the direct messages to them. It helps the business to save a lot of money as well, in others, saving more money within an organization is receiving more revenue.
