2010-10-04 by EPR Staff

InfluenceFinder is a new SEO tool (more precisely a link analysis tool), already reviewed and recommended by the most credible experts, including Aaron Wall,  WordStream's Ken Lyons, and others. Reviewing an SEO tool as a PR tool could appear inappropriate for those who don't understand the nature of our jobs - the truth is that online, PR and SEO are playing for the same team. In fact, it's safe to say that a PR campaign without SEO benefits is like going fishing and coming back empty-handed. Remember that the main role of a PR is to tell a story about... Read More >

Are Traditional Malls Dying Out?

traditional shopping mall

Growing up, going to the mall was always a treat. Typically, my parents took us twice a year--once to get school clothes and once to get summer clothes. After we had picked out what we needed, our parents took us to one of several restaurants attached to the mall for lunch, or we ate in the food court. When I grew older, the mall was a great place for me and my best friend to go to spend the money we earned from our after school jobs. I remember trying on outfit after outfit before choosing the right one. Or,... Read More >

When it comes to social media campaigns in general and business blogging in particular, coming up with something new becomes ever more tougher as the adoption of new channels increases. If a corporate blog, authored by a company CEO or dedicated to a product, use to be trendy and new a few years ago, not having a blog has become the exception in more recent times. Tones, angles, designs, they have all been tested and adapted to better suit the real purpose of all marketing and PR – sell more. And this sell more includes increasing a brand’s popularity, getting... Read More >

BP Behind Hype – The True Meaning of an Aggressive PR Campaign

BP Oil Spill Public Relations

We told you earlier this month that PR giant Brunswick Group will handle British Petroleum’s PR strategies in the months to come. What we didn't give you at the time is the true meaning of this marriage made in heaven. British Petroleum has never accepted responsibility for the accident that is practically killing the Gulf. "This wasn't our accident. This was a drilling rig operated by another company [TransOcean]. It was their people. Their systems. Their processes. We are responsible not for the accident, but we are responsible for the oil, and for dealing with it and cleaning the situation... Read More >

Brunswick Group to Clean Up BP Reputation with Aggressive PR Campaign

Brunswick Group Communications

PR giant Brunswick Group will handle British Petroleum's PR strategies in the months to come, Politico reports. The publication describes the future campaign as "aggressive." For BP's sake, I can only hope that Politico just used a figure of speech. British Petroleum is in no position for aggressive PR campaigns. What they need is a advocate/relationship management type of approach, and as much transparency as possible for a company in their position. So far, BP's response to questions regarding the massive Gulf oil spill they caused was vague, and lacked transparency. Hopefully Brunswick Group will have the common sense to advise... Read More >
