Two Best Values in Media Monitoring
spacer

Social Media on Full Display in Wake of Gabrielle Giffords Shooting

Tucson Citizen spacer
If it was not already obvious, it should now be crystal clear how news coverage has changed. Millions of people from across the world turned to social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, to get the latest news about the January 8 shootings in Tucson. Social Media on Full Display, written by the local newspaper reporter on the scene, examines the role of social media during the first minutes and hours after the shooting.

Defining PR in 140 Characters or Less

Mynt Public Relations spacer
Ronnie Manning asked fellow PR professionals and peers "How would you define the practice of Public Relations in 140 characters or less?" Not an easy question, to be sure with answers often depending on the prism through which you are looking. Defining PR offers up some 25 definitions. Most every reply is different, but with similarity in core definitions. Now, based on these, give some thought to own definition of public relations.

Pitch Perfect: The Art of Media Pitching

The PR Tidbit spacer
Time and time again journalists and bloggers rant about horrible pitches they've received from PR professionals and posers. According to Regina Nelson of Allure Marketing communications, The Art of Media Pitching is equivalent to that of a sommelier's perfect pairing of a 1976 Montelena Chardonnay with Steamed Mussels prepared with White Wine, Tarragon, Shallots, Butter, and Grilled French Bread (a recipe from Chef Bobby Flay). She offers six tips for selecting and approaching the right media source for any given story.

NPRs Scott Simon: How to Tell a Story

YouTube spacer
Storytelling is a major creative thrust these days in both public relations and marketing. Scott Simon's How to Tell a Story offers practical storytelling tips — and good ones at that. YouTube also offers suggestions of other videos on storytelling. One beef: using video with only a talking head is the epitome of bad story telling. Video needs to do what video does best — compelling images. With very rare exceptions, a talking head is not compelling. If you don't have or can't create interesting video, skip the talking head and write an old-fashioned article with a compelling story.

Blogger Relations Misconceptions

Burrelle's Luce Blog spacer
Burrelle's Luce is a major competitor of CyberAlert in media monitoring. Nonetheless, we'd like to call your attention to a blog post by Burrelle's Luce on Blogger Relations Misconceptions. The post revolves around client demands or requests that are, well, misconceived — including sending blast e-mails to bloggers.

Marketing Wisdom for 2011

Marketing Sherpa spacer
This 42-page report offers up mostly of real-life success stories and lessons learned on e-mail marketing, social media marketing, and website marketing.

The Social Compass is the GPS for Adaptive Business

@Brian Solis spacer
Sometimes it's worthwhile to step back and take a longer view of your positioning in the universe. Like a common compass that shows physical direction, The Social Compass points a brand in a physical and experiential direction to genuinely and effectively connect with customers, peers, and influencers, where they interact and seek guidance online — in effect serving as a social compass. The "compass" takes the form of a 22x28 info graphic that maps relationships between a business and its constituents. The full-fledged poster costs $20…but the reproduction in the article is plenty good enough to help you understand the key concepts.

From Community Management to Command Centers

@Brian Solis spacer
The social media community manager has evolved into a standard position within the social community value chain in most major corporations. Usually, it's one person — or a small team. As social media conversations amplify and brands are affected by never-ending activity in social networks, there will be a need for more advanced solutions to tracking, measuring, and engaging stakeholders, influencers, and detractors. From Community Management to Command Centers envisions a further evolution of community management to a NASA-style command center with multiple individuals tracking activity, responding and providing feedback into the organization to elicit changes in strategy or messaging.

Internet 2010 in Numbers

Pingdom spacer
What happened with the Internet in 2010? How many websites were added? How many emails were sent? How many Internet users were there? How many domain names? (Take some guesses before opening the article.) In a stat-filled article, Internet 2010 in Numbers answers these questions and many, many more. With these stats imbedded in your brain, you'll make better Internet-related decisions in the coming year.

The Top-10 Reasons Consumers Follow a Company on Facebook

Social Media Today spacer
The article is written specifically for automobile dealers — but The Top-10 Reasons Consumers Follow a Company on Facebook provides solid clues of what you should be doing to attract consumers to your corporate Facebook page. You'll be surprised at the percentages that are simply "fans".

The Big List: 168 Marketing Trends, Predictions & Resolutions for 2011

Search Engine Land spacer
The beginning of the year is the time for predictions. The Big List is in actuality a compendium of 168 separate articles focusing on marketing categories including search, seo, e-mail, social media, web design. It's a lot of reading and practically no one would read it all, but it's a good reference to find subject areas pertinent to the your specific marketing issues or concerns.

25 Important Search Engine Optimization Mistakes to Fix Right Now

Bill Hartzer Search Engine Marketing spacer
There are lots of articles on search engine marketing. 25 Important Search Engine Optimization Mistakes to Fix Right Now is one of the best — identifying problems in website design that hamper search engine spiders and prevent page 1 listings. Is your site built entirely in Flash? Bad. Do you have a "splash" page as your home page? Bad. Do you have the same title tag on every page? Bad. And there are many more, most with simple fixes.

7 Common Homonymic Spelling Errors

Daily Writing Tips spacer

Crisis PR — The Lightning Round in Dealing with a Badly Babbling Blogosphere

Gabler PR spacer

In The Lightning Round in Dealing with a Badly Babbling Blogosphere, Gabler PR provides a succinct checklist that will help assess the problem and guide action.

How to Dig Through the Avalanche in App Marts

New York Times spacer
The iPhone has hundreds of thousands of apps or applications. But most users want only a dozen or so. How do you select the ones that meet your needs? Which ones have the best functionality? In How to Dig Through the Avalanche in App Marts, Bob Tedeschi analyzes how smart-phone users "app marts" can sort through the apps heap.
