Create and Manage Your PR and Promotion

 

The maps have been overthrown. The well trodden path of the consumer has veered off a guided course. No longer led, the consumer has taken over the asylum and is calling the shots in terms of who they like, where they listen, what they purchase and why they buy.

 

The consumer led shift in balance means that everything has to change from research to sales through to media platforms and reach. Trends are no longer manufactured, they appear to be organic, springing up from word of mouth and social media. Person to person information sharing has enormous power and the move away from corn-fed conglomerate trend setting is a monumental shift in advertising, promotion, PR and sales.

 

8digital is all about self-managed possibilities in line with the changes to the industry. The idea of the 8digital online platform is to help YOU to help YOURSELF in relation to your own PR and Promotion.

 

The team behind 8digital are a professional collective with experience in music management, public relations, photography, journalism and web design.
