More about Strategic Communications
Every public communications campaign offers four opportunities to connect with a target audience. Fail to connect at any one point and you may lose your audience entirely. When you recognize The Four Connecting Points, however, and know how to capitalize on each one, you will get more out of every communications dollar you spend.
