Why staying with the times is a must in PR

The NFL sure has had it's run of bad press. Almost all of it is self-induced. Just when you thought the dust was settling, this happened: NFL says Abdullah should not have been penalized KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The NFL said Tuesday that Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct when he dropped to his knees in prayer after an interception. Whoops!! Good PR is not just being politically correct, but rather understanding the nuances of your audience base. In this case, the refs flat out blew it, and the NFL is dealing with yet another wave of bad press. Let this be a lesson to companies - staying relevant is a must if you are to remain in good graces with your constituents.

WHEN OBSESSIONS GO WRONG!!! 3 bad business obsessions that you have GOT to drop.

8 hours ago

There are good obsessions. Like … fervently dreaming up new ways to uplift + entertain your business audience ? say, serving up a ridiculously fun challenge to help them master a new skill. Like … world-changing Swedish coffee machines that transform your entire morning (what?! get in my life.) Like … trolling YouTube to re-watch sex scenes from your favorite TV dramas, because it makes you sooo happy (who, me?) I believe it?s super important to be obsessed with your business + the people you?ve decided to serve. (If you?re not obsessed, why bother? Find another career, right?) But not all obsessions are good obsessions. Some are very, very bad. Dangerously bad. And not in a sexy, Fifty Shades-esque hold-me-down-and-spank-me-oh-don?t-stop! kind of way.

Apple Revokes Top Euro Computer Mag?s PR Accreditation

Computer Bild is one of Europe’s biggest tech publications. It’s also responsible for a #bendgate or, as they call it, “bentgate” iPhone 6 video that’s been viewed more than half a million times over the past week. Apple’s response to the video yesterday confirmed everything our inside source told us about their PR practices in September: the company revoked the magazine’s accreditation. Here’s the video, which is really not as bad as the one everybody passed around when the phone first launched: It’s in German, but you can see from the screenshot below that the folks at Bild were able to slightly bend the phone with considerable effort.

Majority of Americans Believe Religion Losing Influence

11 hours ago

…open the door and where’s all the people? Pew Research Center’s most recent poll includes some bad news for the Good News: nearly three-quarters of Americans think religion is losing its influence. The qualifier in this poll is that while most of the nation thinks religion is no longer as important as it once was, just as many think that’s a bad thing for this nation on the whole. More than half of my PR career has revolved around the Church. From megachurch pastors to non-profit start-ups, most of the people I have personally represented are morally sound, ethically together, and personally vested in helping their community. Unfortunately, there are a few sour apples in that gaggle of clients, which makes me think this poll reflects more disappointment and apathy than anything else. What will the numbers say to you?

To ALEC or not to ALEC? That is the Question

11 hours ago

Companies and associations across the country have long worked with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a free-market trade organization that facilitates relationships with legislators and their staff to advance model legislation across the country. For a long time, those partnerships proved fruitful. The Hill has described ALEC as ?the model for coordinated, effective lobbying on Capitol Hill as well as in state capitols? and has noted that ?ALEC pioneered the strategy of creating one-size-fits all legislation on a wide range of issues and then pushing it into law across the country.? Recent years have however been marked by a pushback against ALEC, as its brand suffered amid controversial positions and statements. One such reputational challenge came after ALEC promoted the ?stand your ground? laws linked to the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida. The immediate blowback saw hundreds of legislators and dozens of corporations run for cover. In many cases, ALEC embra...

The Future of Las Vegas No Longer Involves Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh

You may not know his name, but you certainly know his company. Many big businesses and top entrepreneurs place Zappos and its CEO Tony Hsieh, pronounced Shay, on the Mount Rushmore of “Best Service-Minded Companies in the Country” (arguably occupying a space next to The Container Store, Southwest Airlines, Chick-Fil-A, and Trader Joe’s). Aside from making every person feel extremely special, he is very passionate about building businesses. This is why he took on the “Downtown Project” in Las Vegas to become an entrepreneur incubator. The project was a $350 million attempt by Hsieh and others to transform 60 acres of Downtown Las Vegas into a growing tech city. Admirable. If only it had worked.
