While public relations professionals can make it look easy, developing effective key messaging that cuts through is a result of a range of factors, including analysis and careful consideration of the research data on target publics, the changes you want to effect, and identifying the messages that will create this change. This minicourse will lead you through some theoretical frameworks and practices to develop your understanding of these steps.
