Forget What You Know About PR: The New Rules of Media Relations
If you’re still following the traditional PR methods, I’m sure you’re finding that they are much less effective. To be much more successful, consider and use the new rules of media relations:

• Non-targeted, broadcast pitches are spam.
• News releases sent to reporters in subject areas they don’t cover are spam.
• Reporters who don’t know you yet are looking for organizations like yours and products like yours- make sure they will find you on sites like Google and Technorati.
• If you blog, reporters who cover the space will find you.
• Pitch bloggers, because being covered in important blogs will get you noticed by mainstream media.
• When was the last news release you sent? Make sure your organization is busy.
• Journalists want a great online media room.
• Include video and photos in your online media room.
• Some (but not all) reporters love RSS feeds.
• Personal relationships with reporters are important.
• Don’t tell journalists what your product does. Tell them how you solve customer problems.
• Follow journalists on Twitter to learn what interests them.
• Does a reporter have a blog? Read it. Comment on it. Track back to it (send a message whenever you blog about a subject that the reporter blogged about first).
• Before you pitch, read (or listen to or watch) the publication (or radio or TV show) you’ll be pitching to.
Once you know what a reporter is interested in, send them an individualized pitch crafted for their needs.

    Practical Guide with Relevant & Compelling Case Studies I’ve read the other two versions of Real Time Marketing & PR and it’s a book I constantly reference and refer to executives looking to find a practical way to understand the benefits of participating effectively in a new media world. I’ve also found that social media and new media practitioners can find value in reading the book as a guide to building a thorough understanding of effective online marketing and PR that goes well beyond Facebook and Twitter.This Third Edition, which has completely updated case studies and examples also includes a much needed Marketing and PR Strategy Plan template designed to help people get started in a step-by-step approach to social media. There’s a great new chapter on measuring your success in the new media space and highlights some practical ways to start measuring your ROI. I particularly enjoyed a section entitled “The Power of Free.” – Read it, it’s worth the price of the book.Finally, David Meerman Scott’s new edition includes a whole new section on Mobile Marketing that covers everything from GeoLocation to Mobile Apps and Mobile Newsrooms. You’ll really like his fun new concept of Cyber Graffiti.In short, a book that’s sold over 250,000 copies and set many of the Fortune 1000 company’s social strategies in motion can’t be ignored. You’ll really enjoy the Third Edition – even if you’ve read the first two.If you know what you’re doing in the social space… buy a copy for your executive team. They’ll immediately embrace your activities and start championing your efforts in the new media world.In short, you can’t publish a book called The New Rules of Marketing and PR in an internet age unless it’s updated to still be ‘New.’ David’s done exactly that and it’s worth the read!

    A must-read marketing book. Seriously. Disclosure: I’m a huge, huge fan of David Meerman Scott and he is an advisor to my company, HubSpot.This is the marketing book that changed my life.When I first encountered “New Rules”, I was had just gotten into marketing (I’m a technology entrepreneur). My startup was founded on the exact principles and ideas that are in this book.I could not recommend this book more highly. It’s a practical guide to how marketing works *today* and should be required reading for all marketers and small business owners. I’ve seen these ideas applied in thousands of businesses. They work.
