Equally important in our article selection process was to present more than just the positions of PR folks with 20 years or 30 years of experience; the new millennium, after all, has introduced some inter-generational differences that affect the process of building relationships with the media. As the market evolves at a rapid clip, there are no easy answers to the overarching challenge of how to get a story effectively distributed to the media. There is no silver bullet.
The best chance of succeeding in media relations these days will result from taking the proven principles of the past and overlaying them with today’s technologies to create a genuine sense of trust and authority between PR execs and media reps. The market demands it, and the Media Relations Guidebook helps deliver it to you.
