2. Why is a press release like a 60-second commercial? While press releases are often seen as an old school tool, they are still the workhorses of organic search and, increasingly, social media. Don’t be boring.
3. So what else is Twitter good for? A lot of things, including keeping track of what the media – particularly high visibility reporters and bloggers – are thinking about.
4. Can a reporter be your friend? Hey, reporters are people, too. Why not pay attention to how you treat them – and see what happens.
5. Are reporters making more mistakes now? (Yes!) It’s a tough business, and getting tougher. Keep it simple, ask for read backs and review coverage once it appears.
“Smart PR always means adapting to new challenges,” said Greg Miller, president of Marketcom PR. “But the good news is, the ongoing changes in communications technology and culture is good for our business. Here’s to change!”
