TechCrunch broke the news last week about certain members on DIGG.com charging to get your website/blog post to the front page of the website. I see nothing wrong with hiring a copywriter wise to the tricks of DIGG to get your website to the front page but not this way.
I seem to be talking to PR companies and PR people a lot and many of them are subscribed to the blog. Hi folks! I think most that sub to this blog realise that PR is changing and there’s going to be an online element to their work and they want to learn that that is.
I was thinking of putting together a free bootcamp for PR and Marketing companies that would cover the basic elements that companies should be aware of in 2008. Spend half a day at it. The companies that would go along would also be encouraged to share their thoughts and their own experiences. It needs to be interactive. I asked a few PR people for some areas and this is the list so far.
Some topics which might get covered are:
- Current state of the web today
- Web 2.0 and social media
- Blogs, writing blogs, engaging with bloggers
- Feed readers
- Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon
- Social networks
- Web/blog/social network monitoring
Any others? Any interest?
