Social Media Release in the Spotlight Again

Click “download” to read it in Word. Download View Here wego again, but this time the discussion is finally happening among those who can benefit from the discussion the most – the PR industry. We took the conversation offlline to convince PR to be more effective with press releases first, before they can worry about the “why, how, when, and where” related to social media releases. I recently spoke at the New Communications Forum on thenow controversial topic of the…

Twitter is real-time “anywhere” messaging and networking

twitter is the message heard around the world – so to speak or so to read. It’s an incredible phenomenon that is spreading faster than online parodies of Snakes on a M F Plane…and in my opinion, it has to be the fastest growing social tool out there right now. It’s everywhere, anywhere messaging so that you can stay in touch with friends, fans, stalkers, and associates whether on the Web, instant messaging, or through text messaging. Each update is…

Don’t Try to Control the Conversation

John Bell recently explored the topic, “Who ‘owns’ conversational marketing? PR, Advertising or The People” over at Strumpette – The Naked Journal of the PR Biz. I also recently covered the subject in my post, “Community, Conversational and Comment Marketing, Will the Real CM Please Stand-up.”Here’s my take. Nobody owns the conversation (except for the people), and therefore we should not even try to dictate its direction. It is possible to subtly influence it by providing information and discussion points…

Social Media Takes Center Stage – Advanced PR Forum in Los Angeles

Bulldog Reporter, Advanced PR Forum, Olympic Collection, Los Angeles It’s amazing how much difference a few months makes. This past Friday in Los Angeles, I participated in a panel discussing the “Brave New World of Social Media,” along with Jen McClure of the Society of New Communications Research and Eric Schwartzman of iPressroom. This is the second time in the past six months that I discussed Social Media at a Bulldog Reporter event, each with a radically different outcome. You…

USAToday.com Socializes News

USAToday.com took a step in “a” direction in the hopes of paving the way for traditional media to follow. But a closed network may not have been far enough… Are they too early? No! Are they too late? No way! Could they do more? Yes…absolutely. But, at this point, this is a promising glimpse of how all news will enable viewers to interact with reporters as well as other readers and peers inside USAToday.com. This is where everything is going,…

PR 2.0 Is Not Web 2.0

It’s fascinating to see how the “PR 2.0” manifesto has spread through a natural and intelligent set of influencers over the last 10 years, without attracting “opportunistic” PR professionals to jump on the bandwagon – until now. Now with Web 2.0 starting to crossover into the mainstream, PR 2.0 (and everything 2.0) has become the golden ticket for misguided marketing professionals. Just a side point though, how many people can accurately define Web 2.0 anyway? Answer, not many. It is…

Advanced PR Technology in Practice – Speaking this Friday in Los Angeles

This Friday, March 2nd, I’m speaking at the Bulldog Reporter conference – Advanced PR Technology in Practice, a day-long event discussing how to transform the state of the art into increased visibility, greater ROI and crisis solutions. The event will be held in Los Angeles at The Olympic Collection. I participated in the event when it was in San Francisco last November. I was invited to speak on Social Media, its present and its future, but I was surprised at…

Brian Solis on Valleywag

It’s a toss up. Coverage on Valleywag can be either extremely beneficial or detrimental to one’s business and/or reputation. I’ve had the good fortune of making the cut on a couple of really great posts by Megan McCarthy recently, so I am thankful just to be included! First, there was Wag’s coverage from the CommunityNext Event, which I also talked about over at bub.blicio.us. The latest was their party report from SFBeta. Valleywag photographer, Lane Hartwell – also of fetching…
