Brian Solis is pioneer of moving the PR industry into and beyond the PR 2.0 era. He’s also an Intel Insider, one of 10 social media advisers I get to work with.
I shot the video (at bottom) during the “Are PR Agencies Dead?” panel at South by Southwest 2009 just days before Brian’s new book was released called “Putting Public Back in Public Relations.”
This is one for the ages, an accessible read for students studying Journalism/Public Relations in college…and a great addition to my BookStack.
The week prior to SXSW, Brian gave me some great advice about getting the @intel Twitter account started using a “curator” approach rather than sharing a persona like some of the excellent account like Zappos and ComcastCares.
Over the past three years, I’ve seen Brian grow more prolific, helping so many people with his insights about PR, about how to best use social media and networking tools and how to go off and do something wonderful with your online persona. Today, he even has an interesting Micro Disruption Theory and The Social Effect.
Brian is someone well worth any free or multitasking time you can spare. Here is a widget that will let you follow Brian Solis’ great photography, blog and Twitter posts.
Update: Here is a great interview of Brian Solis by Seesmic mastermind Loic Le Muer:
One thought on “Are PR Agencies Dead?”
very similar to affirmative action…I would agree that it appears to be losing its influential drive.
