PR Trade Books

Slide One Notes

This book is all about reaching the public directly. In this new age of internet socializing pr professionals don’t have to solely rely on the media.

Scott says

  “Prior to the web, organizations had only two significant choices to attract attention: Buy expensive advertising or get third-party ink   from the media. But the web has changed the rules. The web is not TV. Organizations that understand the New Rules…develop   relationships directly with consumers like you and me.”
