Wise words from +Rebecca Lieb. You have to be willing to invest in what you believe in. There is too much content out there to expect that your message is going to reach your target audience organically anymore.
 
"The days of organic propagation are waning or coming to an end...Throwing a little money into really great content, either to ensure it's really good and high quality (in terms of its production value), or ensuring it's seen is going to be increasingly necessary."+Rebecca Lieb  #cmworld   #prnewswire

This was a really interesting panel at #SXSW  this year. I was fascinated to hear that journalists using #Instagram  was a fairly new thing. It's especially useful when covering an event that needs real-time reporting (no time to get to a computer, download and edit photos). Gunttenfelder of the AP stated that his iPhone + Instagram is now his second camera. 
Gunttenfelder shared that he first began using Instagram just to be creative, “to document my life.” Now it’s part of his work. His phone is his second camera. He makes a conscience decision with e...

My take-aways from the recent +DFWSEM | DFW Search Engine Marketing Association 's State of Search conference.

#SEO is no longer about tricks, games and hats of black and white. It is now about broader business strategies that take careful planning and time to execute. It’s about your PR approach and your content marketing. It is about excellent user experience and creating content people will want to share.

On PR Daily today, a blog post titled "The 10 lies no PR client should ever believe" suggests that PR doesn't drive sales.I wholeheartedly disagree.The earned media PR generates plays a powerful role

Elicit and illicit are occasionally confused due to their similar pronunciation and spelling , which is why they are the focus of today’s #Grammar Hammer.
Elicit and illicit might sound similar, but technically they are not homophones and their meanings are vastly different.  The words are occasionally confused due to their similar pronunciation and ...

PR Newswire recently asked journalists if #socialmedia was replacing traditional methods of getting news about companies they cover. The answer?  Not so much. 
PR Newswire has a significant responsibility to help journalists, bloggers, and other content creators get the information and assets needed to create and package stories and blog posts. We hope yo...

A good tool can only live up to its potential with the skill of a good craftsman. The carpenter’s motto of measuring twice and cutting once makes that point clearly. If a cut is made in the wrong place it doesn’t matter how many features the saw had.

The same is true for media databases. 
Good PR professionals will have a clear understanding of who they are reaching out to before an email is written or a phone number is dialed. A good media database is an essential research tool in ...

I wholeheartedly agree with +Rohit Bhargava on disconnecting to get some serious problem-solving and planning done, and my favorite time to do that is when flying. I usually use the wifi on my way 'to' my business trip destination, but on the trip back home I go totally old-school with a moleskin notebook and pen. I also do non-electronic reading during this time.
