PR-Prof: Taking your brand global is getting easier, but is it worth it?

A contributed article to Harvard Business Review’s blog says that it’s easier than ever for companies to go global. The Web has closed distances and influenced tastes on everything from Burberry raincoats to iPads. “In today’s digital age, people in faraway places can find your website, learn about your company, and have an experience with […]

Lots of Twitter followers? Check to make sure they are real

I was disturbed to read about the proliferation of social bots, software that fakes being a real person online. And that made me check my list of followers. You probably should, too. The New York Times reports that of the 500 million-plus Twitter accounts, “some researchers estimate that only 35 percent of the average Twitter […]

Brands as publishers: An idea as old as George Burns

When Publicis Groupe and Omnicon Group announced in late July that they were merging, they also publicized the launch of a division that turns brands into publishers. “‘We will be looking to help brands produce content to put on their own channels,’ like a Web site or social media,” division chief Mark Himmelsbach told the […]

Scripted apologies don’t ring true, no matter how many lawyers and PR people write them

Tiger Woods. Lance Armstrong. Ryan Braun. We know what they have in common: scripted apologies to the public. Ryan Braun issued his last week and Jason Gay of the Wall Street Journal brilliantly dissected it. “Almost all of these “apologies” are terrible, seemingly lawyered to the limit, muddied with vague language and half-truths,” Gay wrote.

Spokesperson responses you can use: an occasional PR-Prof series

Spokespersons play an important role in communicating with news media. They distribute official statements and deliver answers to reporter queries. Sometimes they don’t talk, usually at the direction of their bosses or their bosses’ bosses. As a public service to PR people, we will publish the better non-responses. Spokespersons should feel free to appropriate the […]

Viewership intensity: Separating casual from loyal TV fans

Content distributors and advertisers are using data that measure viewership intensity to determine who is watching TV programs, when, how and just how much those viewers care about the programming. That could change the way advertising is purchased. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal about rights fees for TV sports programming described viewership […]

The new rules of audience engagement for TV sports

Tucked into an excellent article in today’s Wall Street Journal about rights fees for TV sports programming were a few paragraphs about new ways to measure viewer interest. The change in metrics has great implications for public relations professionals and their clients. The traditional view of sports is ratings. ESPN and ESPN2 are kings, and […]

PR classics: The non-denial denial

During the Washington Post’s investigation of the Watergate break-in, members of the White House and CREEP would issue what the reporters and editors called non-denial denials. The officials would sometimes berate the Post for its articles but never deny any of the assertions in the article. The non-denial denial is not as popular today, but […]
