Social Media Manifesto Makes Junta42’s Most Popular Articles of the Week

The Future of Communications – A Manifesto for Integrating Social Media into Marketing is still going strong, and I hope it continues to do so. Things have such a limited lifespan in the blogospere these days, that I am happy to see that it is still making the rounds. Junta42 promoted the article as one of its featured articles for the week in an email newsletter that was sent to site members. Junta42 is new expert and user-generated search engine…

PR 2.0 Makes the Advertising Age Power150 List

There are many blog rank lists out there, but this is one that only seems to gain greater relevance as each day passes. Kudos to Todd Andrlik for starting the Power150 list where he tracks the most influential marketing blogs covering advertising, new marketing and PR. The list has made Advertising Age, aka Ad Age, and PR 2.0 is among some of the best and brightest. Looks like we could use some additional Technorati and Bloglines points though. Nonetheless, it’s…

Defining Social Media

After publishing, “The Social Media Manifesto, A Manifesto for Integrating Social Media into Marketing,” I decided to take a short break. I wanted it to reside online for people to discover before it was pushed down the page with every post to follow. Afterall, we do have a very short attention span these days and the important posts that exist across the blogosphere are unfortunately quickly forgotten. But that’s the point of the manifesto. There are conversations taking place across…

The Social Media Manifesto

Source: Shutterstock In the past, I’ve spoken at PR, tech, and communications events about Social Media and how companies can engage in the conversations taking place with or without them. As much as I wanted to look into the future, I was rooted in the present as a means to connect it to the past. There are just too many new things to introduce to people and even more reasons why they should care. The discussion usually centered on the…

Why PR Doesn’t Work and How to Fix It

Click here to read this article using ThinkFree Docs There have been a series of interesting posts, comments, and opinions regarding why PR doesn’t work and why so many CEOs have a bad taste in their mouth at the mere mention of public relations. Industry veteran, financier, and marketing evangelist Guy Kawasaki sparked the latest thread with his post, “The Top 10 Reasons Why PR Doesn’t Work.” Kawasaki then followed up with DIY PR, a guide to “do it yourself”…

PRWeek Responds to 3.0 Fallout

In an impressive move, PRWeek EIC, Julia Hood, responded to the blogstorm of negative coverage about the magazine’s edict that PR was entering the 3.0 era. My original article is here. Instead of directly addressing the arguments and points of contention circulating in the blogosphere, Julia explained the rationale behind the 3.0 moniker, “Sometimes editors fall so in love with their ideas, they neglect to properly explain them. Judging by some of the blog posts about our ‘Public Relations 3.0’…

PRWeek Claims Industry Enters Age of PR 3.0 – They Couldn’t be More Wrong

Almost within 24 hours of going on record stating that we will (should) not see anyone referring to PR 3.0 anytime soon, PRWeek runs an article about how the industry is entering a new age: PR 3.0. Hat tip to Constantin Basturea. Excerpt from my post, “And let me point out, that there will not be a 3.0 or any other rev numbers, unless there is another tremendous evolution, fusion, or breakthrough in the practice, science, and art of communications.”…

Social Media is Not Dead

Rather than address the blogosphere with brilliant rhetoric and clarity regarding the Ferrari Incident, instead, Steve Rubel has declared Social Media Dead. Perhaps he’s merely tapping into the power of social media to spark controversy to displace the conversation on Techmeme, or, just maybe, he really does believe that “social” or any other category preceding the word “media” is dead. Jeremy Pepper calls it “Crisis Blogging to Defeat a Meme.” Open the Dialogue captures it with, “What strikes me most…

Engage or Die! ROI vs. ROP in Social Media

This isn’t an attempt at sensationalism, this is a clear message for all businesses, in every market – Engage or die! If you don’t, you’re competition will. Those who engage with customers and markets will cultivate loyalty in ways never before possible. Traditional marketers will lose, unless they embrace new media. The key however, is finding ways to measure everything in ways that mean something at every level of corporate communications. In any given day, I will sell, evangelize, educate,…
