Many places on the web present public relations news. Some of it is great. Some is very dense. Others, regrettably, are behind pay walls. In this post, I will present four ways I make sure to stay up-to-date on the PR industry.
This website features some very easy to access stories with sharing buttons for Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. Comments are pain-free within each post. For more tips and news of the trade, check out the video tab at the top of the page.
This blog is the PR subset of Mediabistro, which is another great website for media news. I receive a daily email from Mediabistro and almost always find something interesting about the media industry on a daily basis. I definitely recommend this to any student entering the industry.
This Firefox add-on is perfect for the PR or Advertising practitioner, because everything is accessible right within your browser window. Of course, some of the items aren’t accessible on the websites themselves unless you pay for it, such as using Cision or any other news website locked behind a pay wall. Regardless, when I’m short on news for a certain day, I usually use this to help me find something new.
The PRSA has five different blogs discussing the industry and helping new professionals with tips on entering the industry. It’s a great place to join the conversation and stay updated on PR news.
I hope you’ve found some of these helpful. If you know of any other places, please feel free to leave them in the comments. Thanks!
