The press release is on life support and I’m rallying a team of supporters to euthanize it – not to put it out of its misery, but to keep it from contributing to the misery of reporters, analysts, bloggers and the people who read them.
The process of writing and distributing a press release can be excruciatingly painful and is almost laughable when you read the final product.

To all of you advanced new media PR professionals, this post may seem a bit remedial in comparison to some of more technical and exploratory subjects we usually cover.
Last year I ran a series covering blogger relations Forward Moving, a specialized blog dedicated to PR education. Due to unexpected demand, I’ve been asked to update these posts and re-run them as an ongoing series.
I had the pleasure of recording a podcast with Jennifer Jones for PodTech‘s award winning Marketing Voices show – one of my favorite podcasts out there. Jennifer is a class act and is one of the leading examples of how industry veterans can migrate and excel in the world of new PR.
We discussed my recent paper, “The Future of Marketing: How to Integrate Social Media into Marketing” and how to help PR professionals embrace the shifts in taking place in the industry.
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′ agency business report cover line, that seems to be the case here.”
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.”
