It’s been a while since we last recorded the NMRCast, but with the growing discussions around the new media release, we felt it was time to reignite the conversations.
The NMRCast was initially started to document the evolution of the press release in today’s social landscape. It reviews the strategies and experiments driving the social media release aka new media release so that PR professionals can learn from each other in order to improve how we share news and information with the public, and in turn, how they share it with each other.
Todd Defren, from SHIFT Communications joined Shel Holtz and me to talk about the one-year anniversary of SHIFT’s social media press release template. We also discussed SHIFT’s template for a social media newsroom, my “how to write” an SMR guide, the lack of social features when using wire services to distribute SMRs, and the status of the social media release working group.
