  • Marketing: as above, but happen to be working for the entities that are called ‘clients’
  • Public relations: as above, but have journalists, journalist-manques and other ne’er’dowells as their audience
  • Influencers: as above, but their qualifications for communications are based upon popularity gained elsewhere through other activities (sport, cleaning, cooking, dancing, being good looking, having sex in public on television etc).
