We sat down with Charlotte Luer, the CEO of LJH Financial Marketing Strategies, to take a deeper look into the world of PR. We asked her some pointed questions about the importance of PR and how to tackle it. With over 25 years of experience, Charlotte has seen many fail to tackle the most important part of their business plan - increasing visibility.


"PR relates to all activities involved in communicating with your key audience - a strong PR program will position your firm's team as go-to experts and include a focus on activities such as media relations, thought leadership content, tailored events, and other activities that position you front and center in the minds of prospective investors."
