Are you missing this communications secret weapon? | The PR Coach

Are you missing this communications secret weapon? | The PR Coach | Samantha Public Relations | Scoop.it

Mobile market is booming. Calls? Not so much. 

 

The impact of mobile social media on our daily business and personal lives is huge.

 

Because of social media, and the growth of mobile, we’ve forgotten one of the most vital communication secret weapons available. The phone call.

 

It’s almost quaint to call it a “telephone” call anymore. At the risk of sounding low-tech to my geeky friends and colleagues, I think we’ve forgotten something very important in our communications toolbox.

Samantha Bruce's insight:

With every advancement made we should never forget the past. Thi article discusses the power of a phone call. In the communication field we need to remember the power of a personal phone call. Some great stats and information.

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:24 PM

We’re just not using our phones for phone calls as often anymore. Think apps, photos, IMs, e-books, video games, movies, music and many other practical uses.


That's why a personal phone call is so powerful!

Killing Keystone XL pipeline seen as risking more oil spills by rail | Energy | News | Financial Post | Samantha Public Relations | Scoop.it
A rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline by President Barack Obama would push more of Canada’s US$73-billion oil exports onto trains, which register almost three times more spills than pipelines
Samantha Bruce's insight:

If transporting by rail is more of a risk how do you think Keystone XL should proceed? Public opinion will likely not be positive in nature, and Keystone XL needs  to be able to handle the coming backlash.
