Start-ups are growing in number every day. These start-ups thrive on digital media, as a PR consultant, Shalini Singh talks about how they go about the use of traditional or digital media or a mix of both. “Working with a start-up means that you work directly with the core team, and as a PR, you need to educate them about media, as to which platform would be the best and also teach them how to talk to the media,” she said.
Among other issues, the credibility of using an online platform was discussed. “At the end of the day online portals look at the number of likes or views that itself shows the credibility of the page. More the people read, more credible is your page,” said Karthik Kannan.
