CyberAlert: Nobody Monitors and Measures the Media Better
left edge left margin November 2011: Issue 4
spacer
After a week off during the Thanksgiving holiday, Media Monitoring News returns this week with a cross-section of worthwhile articles on PR and marketing.

Three articles on media monitoring emphasize the value of "listening" over simple "data collection". This issue also includes articles on being prepared (Boy Scouts motto) for social media crises and handling customer complaints on Twitter.

We also take another (somewhat snide) look at the PRSA effort to redefine the PR profession. In the self-help category, there's a really useful article on How to Write a Winning PR proposal.

A Better Way to Handle Publicly Tweeted Complaints

Business Week spacer

The way most companies are handling online customer complaints is damaging corporate reputation — and, even worse, creating perverse incentives according to A Better Way to Handle Publicly Tweeted Complaints when tweeted complaints get better, faster reactions than calls to customer service centers. Giving squeaky tweeters the grace creates powerful incentives for customers to complain publicly and further mar your corporate or brand reputation.
