Macros, links, derived back-ends -- so many ways to achieve what you
want.  Here is another:

@@html:<b>@@bold text@@html:</b>@@

#+HTML: Literal HTML code for export

 All lines between these markers are exported literally

For pdf export via LaTeX there are @@latex, #+LATEX, and #+BEGIN_LATEX
... #+END_LATEX.
