Data-Driven PR: As technology continues to advance in 2024, publicists and marketers are likely to increasingly rely on data analytics to measure campaign effectiveness. 2024 will likely see more sophisticated tools for real-time monitoring, analysis, and reporting, as well as data-driven decision-making and storytelling. 
  3. Integration of AI and Automation: Automation tools and AI were already making inroads in PR tasks such as generative content creation, distribution, media monitoring, and analytics.
