As digital professionals we have all felt that bit of anxiety when trying to pull together content and creative for a "quick" page, newsletter call out, post, tweet, pin, Instagram, smoke signal, etc. And often times it feels a lot like this.
But as public media folk, we always try to turn lemons into lemonade. So to help ease the search process stations face when attempting to find assets to use on their digital platforms, the SPI team is continuing its efforts to share with stations resources from different PBS departments.
Below you'll find information from PBS Marketing & Communication's recent one-sheet, which briefly outlines general audience and brand resources that stations can leverage.
PBS Marketing & Communications utilizes a multitude of channels to communicate with stations and provide assets and resources for stations to effectively promote national programming and initiatives and engage audiences in their markets. The General Audience teams include publicity, social media, marketing, events, brand, creative and corporate communications.
