Media & Online Public Relations
There was a time where public relations companies worked with newspapers and other news and media sources when they believed such media source could place a client into a spotlight either on television or in print. Times have changed greatly and many old-school public relations companies have found that it’s much more about online public relations these days, and finding good media placements includes many Internet strategies they’re not so knowledgeable about; half their career was spent building relationships with news and print media people who are now gone, eliminated by declines in television newsrooms and budget squeezes at national newspapers. Sure, they still have a connection or two scattered about, but what they are really trying to do is get a handle on this “Internet stuff”.
Today’s public relations professional needs to be much more an Internet and socially savvy professional who can find online venues for their clients story to get picked up not in print with declining circulation, but on Internet blogs, social networks, YouTube, Facebook, they’ve got to Tweet and acquire Retweets, Shares, etc. That’s right, today’s savvy PR professional needs to be an Internet marketer who knows full well how to harness the power of the Internet and knows how to get their clients story published online, acquiring backlinks and make it go viral on social media websites such Facebook. The buzz building landscape has changed greatly, however, past public relations companies much prefer that you are not aware of this fundamental change in new media.
