This step-by-step guide to briefing a PR campaign was created for marketers to brief an agency, or agencies, but is also a useful exercise for in-house teams when starting a new campaign or project.
From an integrated marketing perspective, a master brief (see The Campaign Brief starring Mark Sareff in our resources section) includes business objectives, audiences, messages and tone. This forms the basis for more specialised briefs. In a PR brief, a marketer can be more specific in areas such as community programs, corporate social responsibility commitments and former engagement with influencers.
