Why B2B Formula?
From search engines to social media to online traditional media, we’ve finally got the data we need to apply the scientific method to public relations. The goal of this blog (in addition to having fun talking about B2B social media) is to find PR formulations that deliver predictable, repeatable results. In short, to turn social media into a business science. If you’d like to join the cause, email me at davidhrosen (at) gmail
