Marcom, Free Work and Spotting the Fakes

binocularsThis week highlighted that, as an independent pro, you not only get to color outside the lines but decide where the lines are drawn. During the March 26 Solo PR chat, independent communication pros discussed the following topics of interest:

  1. What's the difference between PR and Marketing Communications (marcom)? What other responsibilities does marcom have? #solopr
  2. You’d love to work w/a start-up & know they don't have much funding, would you work for free? For shares? Any other way? #solopr
  3. Online many people seem qualified- how can you tell if a person is for real? #solopr
