Running Public Relations Campaigns in Nevada
Updated: Jun 1
Famously home to Las Vegas (otherwise known as sin city), the Silver State is made up of mainly desert with most of the state consumed by the Great Basin. In comparison to other states across the country, Nevada has one of the smallest populations, with just 3 million residents. Most of those residents live within Clark County, which includes the Las Vegas-Paradise area. Despite being the 4th largest producer of gold in the world, the largest economy in Nevada is tourism - which leads to a melting pot of culture in the state.
A study in 2019 by CherryDigital.co, based on 4 years of data found that the optimum day and time to send a press release in Nevada is 10.35am or 3.21pm on a Wednesday.
