NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Until recently, linking public relations to revenue has been easier said than done for communicators. While clips, coverage and ad equivalency value have been relied on, today's PR professionals require a data-centric approach with advanced tools and tactics.

Furthermore, 82% of marketers in a survey conducted by Forrester cited that ROI metrics such as leads, sales or revenue were the most important to them for measuring the overall impact of media efforts1.
