Inbound PR is a means of identifying and understanding an audience or public and using its content to start a conversation to build relationships based on meeting a need rather than creating a need. As a result, you build relationships, trust and influence.
It’s all stress-tested from Iliyana’s extensive experience. She bridges thought leadership and thought doing through her work as Global Partner Program Manager at Hubspot. Practising what she preaches, Iliyana has collected her insight, tools and processes in a book.
