It's like the old debats between old and new economy.
Blogging is new economy, with new business model.
The old PR agencies should build something totaly different.
Too risky !

Most of the CEOs are around 50 years old ?

Neville Hobson

Similar argument indeed, Laurent: old vs. new.

Not sure CEO age is the issue - I know a few PR CEOs who are a lot younger than 50 who still haven't got it.

Whatever the issue, time is not on PR's side to get with the programme.

laurent bervas

Of course I was speaking obout the age of the ideas ;)



Why Blogging? I personally think that webbloging is effective means of expressing your personal views or company's views to your fans or customers. You can not do this on the e-commerce web sites. Webbloging allows you to interact with other webbloggers.

My webblog gave my visitors the opportunity to learn some new things,for examples, how to make money from buying and selling houses,how and where to advertise their businesses successfully,dating myths,tips for safe driving,etc.

Neville Hobson

Ah, the age of the ideas not the age of the thinkers! Significant differentiation!


Would somebody mind telling me what a BLOG is?
Email subject must be "blog answer" or filtered out.

Neville Hobson

Tony, I'm emailing some info to you.

Meanwhile do a Google search for the phrase "weblog definition". That will give you some good pointers to info.
