You Know You Are In PR When...

Where once PR professionals (including myself) were mocked as fearless spinmeisters, it appears that everyone is suddenly joining the PR club. Much of it stems from the reality that conventional journalism jobs are disappearing, while brands scramble to employ former journalists to manage their new content factories.

Please don't misunderstand me. I'm not predicting journalism's demise. As brands transform into content providers, I believe that PR, on both the B2B and B2C sides, is changing into something more journalistically friendly. Media sites, on the other hand, with their sponsored and branded material, appear to be more like PR-produced sites.

In truth, we're at a crossroads, as media companies look for new methods to transform pixels into cash, while advertisers try to sway prospects with compelling content. It's a crazy world out there.

Let's Recall Where We've Been... And Where We Are Before We Lose Our Way. Let's Go Back And Forth In Time For A Moment:
