Readers of this blog will know that one of my favorite podcasts is “For Immediate Release: The Hobson and Holtz Report.” If you’re reading this blog and not listening to FIR, stop reading right now, go to ForImmediateRelease.biz and sign up for the blog and podcast feed. Or, as an introduction you can check out this Saturday’s live episode on BlogTalkRadio.
This Saturday, February 9, at 10am PT/1pm ET/ 6pm GMT, hosts Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz will host a special live call-in edition of “For Immediate Release: The Hobson and Holtz Report” on BlogTalkRadio.
The call-in episode will focus on the blurring of the lines between internal and external communications. If you work in external PR, how do employees of your (or your client’s) company affect your communication efforts? If you work in internal communications, how does your role change in order to prepare employees for their growing role as points of contact and brand experiences in the social media sites where they participate?
It works just like my show, The Rundown. Visit the FIR BlogTalkRadio profile page to listen or call 347.324.3723 to join in the conversation, (you may also listen via phone, pressing ‘1’ to be put in the talking queue).
If you miss the live show, the audio will still come through the podcast feed, so no worries. Should be great show and I hope to hear you there.
(as per usual, I tell you that I work for BlogTalkRadio)
Parachute, my eye. I want to know what color your favorite social media, new marketing hero is.
By now you’ve heard (unless you live under a blogosphere rock, i.e. are offline) that allourfavoritepodcasters have joined together to form an honest to goodness virtual company focusing on all aspects of communication. Instead of offering social media as an afterthought, crayon will be incorporating every strategic tool at its disposal to fit the needs of its clients.
The biggest boxes of crayons come chock-full of dozens of colors, Joe notes, but most communicators (marketers, advertisers, PR folk, corporate communications pros) seem always to start with red, green, and blue. crayon is ready to pull any color out of the box and we definitley [sic] will not start with red, green, and blue.
And that’s great. But I want to hear from you. What colors are your social media magnates? Mine are as follows:
Holtz says to me a fuzzy wuzzy brown
Hobson is nothing less than a burnt sienna
CC Chapman couldn’t be anything other than atomic tangerine
Jaffe is a toss-up between razzmatazz and purple pizzazz
Best of luck, gentlemen, to you and your NY behind-the-scene troop, as well as your incoming freshmen. I wish I could join you, but my accolades aren’t as bright and I’m not sure what I can do from NE Ohio. Keep on keepin’ on.
