Just today, I stumbled upon a very interesting campaign carried out by RealWire regarding the issue of irrelevant press release emails or more widely known as PR spam. As we all know, the PR and media industries are both facing unprecedented changes in the communication landscape. The almost free nature of online reporting is leading the publishing industry to pressure journalists to produce more content in lesser time.
In the meantime, PR professionals are now under pressure to not only deliver coverage through traditional media channels, but to also engage other influencers such as bloggers and the general public. The relationships that are formed needs to be as efficient as possible due to shortage of time. Sigue leyendo

Running your own show takes confidence-but beware your limitations.
With the new year dawns new hope. Some will hit the treadmill. Others will clean out that musty closet or dump their loser boyfriend. And still others will muster the courage to leave their still-limping employers and strike out on their own.
Starting a company is scary stuff in any environment. It takes vision, capital, courage, conviction and, yes, even a touch of arrogance. Indeed, lack of confidence can kill a young company. But so, too, can thinking you’re all that when you’re not.
How to strike the right balance between confidence and arrogance? Start by avoiding the following classic traps. I wish they were clichés, but sadly they aren’t.
“Business plans are for dummies.”
Think business plans are just for investors? Wrong. Those plans are primarily for you. Compiling a business plan forces you to think through the fundamentals, from financing to marketing. The plan also communicates the same vision to employees, lawyers, accountants and other key players.
Better still, the mere fact of writing this stuff down allows you to measure the performance of your business. If you can’t measure it, you surely can’t manage it. Sigue leyendo

Tips for the Not So Creative
But that doesn’t mean you don’t want to work in a creative environment. You might even feel like you have a creative flare, but decided you were more business savvy, so you studied Marketing and Advertising in college to allow yourself the chance to work with creative minds. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can be both, or at the very least, more creative.
At AgencyNet we have a saying that “you don’t have to be a designer to be creative.” And I have to admit, I was bit bewildered when I first heard this. So many agencies clearly distinguish between the “creatives” and the “suits.” After a couple of months, I began to grasp what this meant – I was and could be just as creative as a designer if I wanted to be. My job doesn’t and shouldn’t end when I hand off a brief to the creative team, it should keep going and going throughout the entire creative process. Sigue leyendo
