PR is dead and blogging killed it

This post has made it round the blogosphere already but I still want to mark it here.

It is the presentation by Roland Tanglao, who blogs for living, to Reputations and its message to all businesses is:

Start reading and writing blogs today to gain a competitive advantage!

There was much juicy goodness and after much deliberation the following is what I’d ‘take home’ from the presentation:

  • Don’t overestimate the impact of blogging in the short term and underestimate it in the long term
  • Blogging is another example of disintermediation cf. Travel Agents, Programmers, Dell
  • Blogging not just for tech companies anymore… is the web just for tech companies?
  • Blogs have a high Google rank because they are networked digital paper
  • Link frequently to competitors and sources
  • Connect with customers, speak in your voice (i.e. not 100% self promotion since that’s not a natural voice) and have a two way conversation through links and comments; take criticism in stride

So traditional PR is dead, long live DYI PR.
