I joined Chris Heuer, Tom Foremski, and Shel Holtz for the latest edition of the NMRCast (New Media Release) for Shel’s award-winning For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast. This was a interesting and informative episode that not only discussed the future of the NMR but also current examples by Todd Defren, Shel Holtz, and my agency, FutureWorks, as well as Todd‘s recent post regarding Top 5 Principles of Social Media News Releases.
NMRCast #7 - “Real-world implementations” is available online here.
Yesterday, Todd Defren ran a short, but sweet, post to help PR pros “stop and think” in order to develop more successful SMPRs .
- Democratize “Access”
- Ensure “Accuracy”
- Embrace “Context”
- Build “Community”
- Be “Findable”
I also added an idea or two, and in my discussion with Tom Foremski , the list is far from complete, but it is off to a great start…so stay tuned for updates.
- Write “intelligently”
- “Eliminate” hyperbole

I stopped by Amanda’s place over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to read her latest post.
According to Congdon, “I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO Popurl!!!! Wow!! My popurls collaboration is getting quite the attention.”
And according to the Popurl blog, “pop goes the url again! I’m announcing the cooperation with amanda congdon. launching in september she will remix the best urls from popurls every weekday in her own little box right on popurls.”

My article…Part 2 of who-knows-how-many in a series to help up-and-coming PR professionals (and those verterans who are wondering when the hell blogs became part of the PR mix) just ran on Forward Moving.
“Blogger relations is an important addition to a PR program because enthusiast bloggers within a given community/market can strongly influence consumer behavior. According to Technorati, it is tracking more than 51.5 million blogs, of which, many are speaking to and advising your customers on their next move.”

Social media is becoming pervasive and more importantly, extremely influential among the people buying products and solutions.
According to a recent survey, and all the rage at the recent Search Engine Strategies conference in San Jose, Outsell, a marketing research firm, recently interviewed 7,000 professionals in corporations, government, healthcare, and academia to find out:
o How much time they spend searching and reading info for their job: 12 hours per week.
o Where they search and read that info
Last week at Search Engine Strategies conference, I joined Chris Heuer for the next edition of the NMR cast for Shel Holtz’s popular For Immediate Release (FIR) podcast. This is an ongoing series regarding the New Media Release (NMR) lead by Chris Heuer of BrainJams and Tom Foremski of Silicon Valley Watcher.
The NMRCast #4: Press releases SEO & role of XML schemas, is available online here.
If you were around Silicon Valley during the 90s, then I’m sure the current Web2.0 frenzy seems familiar. If you’re fresh out of college, or if you’re a recent transplant, welcome to Bubble 2.0.
Not that this bubble is going to burst with the same “pop” as 1.0, but it does share all too familiar nuances of hype and misdirection. There are even calls to ditch 2.0 for 3.0 already.
Vic Podcaster from HotFromSiliconValley invited me to a short and sweet podcast while attending the STIRR Mixer at BlueChalk in Palo Alto on Wednesday night. (Scroll down to August 10th at the Hotfromsiliconvalley site.)
Vic is a great guy and one of the more popular attendees of the event.
Topics included FutureWorks and the agency’s philsophies, PR2.0 the blog and my views on Web 2.0.
Thanks Vic for including me on your show! Until next time..
