Have you answered all those e-mails in your inbox today? How about the dozen direct messages on Twitter? Oh, and don't forget about those voicemails stacking up in your desktop phone.
If you're like me, you're behind schedule before you get out of bed in the morning. You grab a cup coffee, and the race begins.
The new PR Daily
recognizes this hectic, crazy life you lead. And we don't want to be part of the problem. You still need news, how-to features, and analysis of the industry—but you need it quickly.
How we can help:
1. Our home page provides a quicker, leaner briefing of the news.
Our headlines and front-page summaries let you make a five-second decision: Is this story worth reading, or should I move on?
2. We've included a Submit News button.
It enables readers to send us news tips and links to their own blog posts and stories. Again, we've stressed speed and ease of use. No more searching for Managing Editor Michael Sebastian's e-mail address. Now you can simply drop a link or message into an easy template and push send.
3. Our Tweet, Like, and LinkedIn buttons let you share your favorite stories—instantly.
It takes about two seconds to send your favorite tips and breaking news to your followers and friends.
4. You can now search PR Daily archives.
Looking for a story we ran last week—or last year? Well, now you can search for it.
5. We organized the stories for you.
In the navigation bar on PR Daily
, and in the story headers, you’ll notice one of four categories. Now you can quickly see what’s happening in social media, media relations, marketing, writing & editing, and crisis communications.
6. We've shortened our video interviews and tips to 3 minutes or less.
In some cases, we've boiled our video segments to 30 seconds. It is often said that video is the hottest social media platform. Well, we agree, but only if that video is brief and useful.
7. You can read it on the go.
Do you scan PR Daily
on a tablet like the iPad? We've designed the new PR Daily
so it's easy to scroll through stories while on the bus or train. You can bring it to meetings and share the content easily.
8. Find out what other people are reading.
Don't have time to read everything we offer? Check out our Most Popular and Most Commented list on the right.
9. Comment and share with your network.
Our new Comments section lets you tie your comment to your Facebook and Twitter accounts so your friends and followers can see what you wrote.
10. Scan more headlines on Facebook.
If you’re like many people, you spend a good chunk of time browsing Facebook. PR Daily
now has a fan page
, and we’d love it if you’d “like” us.
I hope this helps.
