In today’s social world, anyone can be a content creator. From marketing and community managers to sales people and customer service representatives, the front-line staff has a far broader reach than ever before. Today’s increasingly social world brings new opportunities to more effectively promote and represent a brand, and create an open dialogue via social channels to the community the organization serves.
While public relations professionals have always played a part in creating content and pushing client messaging to relevant target audiences, the “social boom” has expanded public relation’s role to that of “public engagers.” Now, public relations professionals have to lead and guide the social activities both inside and outside an organization, properly engaging with online influencers and communities.

Join Geno Church for his workshop, Bringing Sexy Back to Offline Marketing, on Sunday, October 16, 2011 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m. at the PRSA 2011 International Conference, Oct. 15–18 in Orlando, Fla.!
During my session, I’ll help you refocus your public relations efforts and evaluate the power of offline word of mouth for your brand.
With all the social media buzz floating around the public relations industry, let’s look at a few statistics:
- 90% of word of mouth happens offline (face-to- face or voice-to-voice) – Keller Faye Group
- 10% of word of mouth happens online (social media, email, texting) – Keller Faye Group
- 93% of retail sales happens offline – Forrester Research report
So why all this focus and attention on online word of mouth? It’s because offline Word of Mouth is very difficult to do. It’s because marketers treat word of mouth as an output (sustaining the conversation) and not as an input (starting the conversation).
It’s time to talk about The 5th P… PEOPLE

Picture this: It’s another Monday morning. As you step out of bed, you are beginning to mentally prepare for the thirteen meetings that stagger ahead on your manic schedule. While gradually awakening, you emerge to commence your daily routine… pick up the paper, make the coffee, pop the English muffin into the toaster and turn on your computer – ready to respond to a series of instant messages and e-mails aggregated in your inbox from the time you kissed the kids goodnight at 11PM until the time the alarm clock went off at 5:45AM. You want to be in the office by 7, so you quickly rush through your calendar reminders to ensure you are on time and aware of all of your obligations. You enjoy that one last sip of coffee before jumping into your suit and you wave goodbye to you family (who are just now waking up). After shutting the car door, you immediately turn on your Bluetooth (allowing you to multitask even more!) and quickly dial-in for your weekly Monday morning staff call. Turning on your mental auto pilot, you suddenly realize you’re 20 minutes into the call and you’ve been asked to provide your projections for the week. What did you gather from the first half of the call?
We’ve all been in similar situations before – and it’s likely our audiences have been through the same. Overtaxed for time, how do we retain our audiences’ undivided attention?
