Bloggers are becoming an ever-important part of any promotional campaign, whether it be PR, marketing, advertising, product or book launches and more.

This post in particular has sparked a great debate in the comments section on good PR, poor PR and more. It’s a great read and well worth checking out. Why is it so good? Read on.

The argument seems to delve too deep into the minutia of networked markets instead of looking at it from a more holistic perspective: when anybody can publish anything in text, images, audio and video for free to everyone else in the world (and in a place where people can share, collaborate or mash-up that content), the ability and opportunity to change the world is (very much) present.

[Marketing] Big Crowds
Marketers are fantastic at getting crowds. Marketers attract crowds, community builders weave relationships. Unusual things attract crowds. Big events, celebrations, ceremonies, police arrests, traffic accidents. Big, unusual, things nearly always attract a crowd. They do something big, promote it, and a crowd gathers. It doesn't matter if it's online or offline, unusual things will attract a crowd. The problem with crowds is they’re temporary. Sure, they can be big, but they dissipate once the event/activity/whatever brought them together is over.

And to end this post it should be obvious by now why this kind of analytics is literally impossible to imagine in just about any marketing/PR/MarCom firm even though what it delivers is actually what clients want and need in the first place - true insight … it takes a bit more time to do than firms are willing to commit to, or let the analysts devote, and the vocabulary of PR (based on Spin) is antagonistic to analytics which essential nature is a search for the truth of a situation, often by triangulation.
