Thanks to Ryan Clark Holiday for His Post on The Future of PR

Thank you to Ryan Clark Holiday for his post yesterday discussing the future of pr.

Per Ryan’s post...

I’ve been trying to articulate my thoughts on where I think PR is heading in both the near and distant future. I was having trouble and then I found Brian Solis’ post on the matter and realized I didn’t have to write it anymore. He did it for me.

“For far too long, PR has operated behind a wall, spamming media with generic emails and press releases, without taking the time to understand why their news matters to the community they’re trying to reach. And now with the tools to reach communities directly at their fingertips, many will fail, while a few smart, immersed, and passionate professionals will converse transparently. But perhaps at that point, they’re no longer just another PR person, they could in theory, graduate to something much more important and influential.”

Read that, print it out, and tape it to the wall in front of your desk.

Much appreciated Ryan. Just trying to change the world one person at a time.

    Appreciate your post. And I think you’re right, you might start to see high turnovers with the really good PR people in the future, as they develop their skills and their supervisors realize that those talents would be better used in other areas.

    Regardless of what you want to do, there is absolutely NOTHING to lose from entangling yourself in this network of bloggers and writers.

    Talk to you soon,
