JP Morgan $2 billion mistake and impact on reputation | Crisisblogger

The folks at Goldman Sachs are breathing just a little easier today. The media sharks have found another sad victim: JP Morgan.

 

$2 billion in trading losses is a lot. Certainly would be hard for me to swallow. And that’s part of the problem with this kind of story. It’s pretty hard for us common folks to understand the scale and scope of Wall Street Investment activity, and when you have politically motivated “reporters” doing all they can to make these bankers seem evil incarnate, it gets even more confusing....

5 Ways to Get More Press and Make Media Connections | Business 2 Community

5 Ways to Get More Press and Make Media Connections | Business 2 Community | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
In the era of the Kardashians and Donald Trump, everyone knows it’s crucial to toot your own horn as often (and as loudly) as possible.

 

Of course, gaining press is a catch-22: you need more coverage because you’re not well-known, and you’re not well-known because you’re not splashed across the front pages.

 

Not all is lost, however. Even if you don’t have a big name, it is possible to get more press and make media connections on your own. You just have to know where to look....

Do It Yourself Social Media Audit

Do It Yourself Social Media Audit | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
We tend to create the social media presence for our businesses in an organic fashion, which is the natural way to grow relationships right?

 

...The problem is; as you explore new tools and meet new people who invite you to join them on other networks, your messaging and your social media presence overall can easily get confused.
That’s why it’s a good idea to conduct a social media audit every so often to step back and get a 10K foot level. This allows you to see yourself as others might see you and judge if you are delivering the message you think you’re sending....

Content repurposing can be a great way to work smarter, not harder. See the results of our repackaging of a blog post into an infographic.

 

...The infographic craze is in full swing, so I was perusing my content archives looking for something that I could turn into a good visual. I quickly recalled many CMI comments talking about how they had printed out the text-based checklist and had it pinned to their cube wall. BINGO! The rest is history…in the making.

Unhappy? P-d off? Mad as hell? There’s an app for that. | Crisisblogger

I saw an item in a PR newsletter that a Walmart store manager started a petition to remove the CEO–and got 13,000 signatures. That’s how I found out about www.change.org. Maybe you are already familiar with this site. It is a tool for starting a petition and collecting signatures.

How Baby Boomers Are Stifling The Marketing Revolution

How Baby Boomers Are Stifling The Marketing Revolution | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
The only brands that survive will be the ones that are successful in marketing to Generation Y--too bad the agencies, the media, and the client organizations are all run by baby boomers who don't seem to get it (yet).

 

...The baby boomers have been driving the economy since the '80s. Now we’re all getting old. We’re retiring, or we’re planning to retire, so we’re finally getting smart and starting to save more than we spend. In either case, we’re leaving our peak spending years behind (hopefully to be replaced by our peak fun years).


Over the next decade, Generation Y will take over as the big economic engine in the U.S. Soon they’ll be giving up their carefree lifestyle to start buying houses, cars, furniture, travel, etc. Plus of course all the stuff it takes to raise their children. Despite the lessons they should have learned over the past three years, they’ll probably be spending more than they earn, just to keep up.


This is a big problem for brands....

New Phenomenon: Social-Media-Savvy Patients | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

No matter which opinion you hold, whether as a medical professional or a layman, about the growing trend of patients “in the know” due to the wonderful tool that is the internet, it is safe to say that this is one trend that is unlikely to tail off, ever. People are rightly passionate about their health and will continue to spend time researching their ailments online whether that research takes place via Google search (and possible specific niche sites like this one on Abdominoplasty or another one on Diabetes) or huge information and community portals like PatientsLikeMe.com, Yahoo! Answers or Wikipedia. Given this fact, medical professionals need to decide, both individually and as a group, how to tackle this potential problem and turn it into a boon for all involved....

Self-inflicted reputational damage…

Self-inflicted reputational damage… | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it
I don’t even have to do the math to figure this out. The increase in mentions about Jamie Dimon’s reputation is astronomical.

 

Last year on May 14, there were nine mentions of Jamie Dimon with the word reputation. Fast forward one year and there are 3,160 mentions just today. The articles all have a similar ring to them… no surprise considering that the bank he leads lost over $2 billion on a trading error. Pretty soon, I expect they will be calling for his head....

4 Ways to Use PR in Your Content Marketing Efforts [Case Study] | Chief Content Officer

4 Ways to Use PR in Your Content Marketing Efforts [Case Study] | Chief Content Officer | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

...“Content has gotten a bad name for a good reason,” says Gelberg. He’s referring to what many call “content farms,” or agencies and technology companies that staff up blogging platforms with hundreds of writers who are paid-per-click for branded media sites. He explains that if you hope to get the attention of media companies, you need to have something valuable to share (i.e. insightful expertise) and high-quality writing, not SEO-stacked cotton candy. Without value and quality, your public relations push, no matter how hard you work, will amount to nothing.

 

Ultimately, catching the attention of top media outlets takes more than great content. It also requires a bit of grace when developing and executing on the all-important pitch. Gelberg offers a few pointers for content marketers with PR aspirations...
