    Hey Deirdre – bought a copy of the book online at Amazon.co.uk. Annoyingly we have to wait another two – three weeks before it arrives.

    Really looking forward to it so much. Aside from account managing, developing strategy and implementing tactics, i cannot express enough how much i cannot wait to read the book.

    I feel like its been a good while since i’ve been mentally stimulated in the learning sense about PR since university.

    Fingers crossed it arrives soon!

    Hi David – Thank you very much for buying my book. That’s too bad that you have to wait so long to get the copy. I hope you enjoy PR 2.0. I look forward to your feedback 🙂

    Just got a copy – Love It!

    I’m a technologist at heart – trained many years ago in Computer Science, but, now I’m a first time entrepreneur breaking into the tourism marketplace with a new product that needs attention in the marketplace!

    So I looked at conversations in the index – the second entry really intrigued me – I want it! What CMS is being referenced there in that sidebar? Is it here or a dream?

    Need to know as I want a conversation with my customers on this new touring approach I have – I just wrote a blog post or something I need to figure out how to get out there to get the conversation started! And “monitored”!

    I am currently using Joomla as my CMS for the website.

    I was also extremely interested in the “monitoring” talked about in the first mention of conversation – what tools would a little bootstrapped startup (so far that is!) use to watch the conversations about itself?

    So HELP!

    Thanks,

    Marvin

    Hi Marvin,

    I’m so glad that you love the book. Joomla is great for your CMS. When it comes to a blog post, what I usually do is cross promote my posts in the different social networking forums. So, for example, I post links to my blog on Twitter, Facebook and Ragan.com. You should also make sure that you have RSS available on your blog. This way people can select an RSS feed reader and automatically get the update when you post a new blog.

    With respect to monitoring, there are services which can get pricey, so I would start with Google Alerts to let you know when there is discussion about you or your product.

    I hope this helps! Good luck. Let me know how it goes.
