Nowadays, having a stacked resume and good credentials isn’t enough. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “it’s all about who you know,” and thought it was just a saying; however, it is much more than that – it’s the truth. Why you ask? While you might have the best resume and be the best candidate for the job, there are dozens and sometimes hundreds of applications vying for the same job. You will need someone helping your application stand out and get noticed.
I recently received an email from a reader who was arranging an interview for a client.
He wondered whether it was possible to put a written agreement in place with the producer prior to the interview that would prohibit the crew from using any ‘gotcha’ moments in which an unexpected document or video clip might be produced during the interview.
It’s almost the end of the year. I usually write a “Trends in PR” or a “New Year’s Resolution” post. However, this year, I’ve decided to do something different. My post focuses on driving your own change / expansion by trying something new in 2014. I’m going to challenge you to step out of your […]
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of PitchEngine, a “new kind of social PR platform.” I’ve used it to share my customized stories and to be found.

There are so many best practices for us to review. So, as you are scouring policies, you may want to consider separating your resources into a […]
My last blog post on creating a social media policy focused on a how to approach the development of your policy in order to represent your organization, based upon the type of social outreach, as well as employee and public participation in your social networking initiatives.
I just spent the last two days with Amanda Miller Littlejohn. Amanda is founder of Mopwater PR and a PR professional and blogger based in Washington DC. Our two days were filled with great conversations, laughs (lots of them, as you will see from the video) and many creative ideas.
I met Jacob Morgan for the first time (in person) when he spoke at the PRSA T3PR Conference in June. I was impressed with his presentation on social CRM. For those of you who don’t know Jacob, he is a thought leader in social business. He is also the author of Twittfaced – Your Toolkit for Understanding and Maximizing Social Media was entirely co-authored through online collaboration and demonstrates the power of social media and online collaboration.
The last time I wrote about Marketwire, I was praising the company for their progressive technology and social media 2.0 service. I had also just worked with them jointly on a book signing in their exhibit booth at the PRSA International Conference in Detroit back in 2009. I’ve been watching Marketwire ever since, and thought it was time to write about them again.
