Media Relations has changed dramatically over the last 5 years, shifting from a small majority of companies having major influence and authority to more of a distributed influencer network of bloggers, corporations, and citizen journalists.
Corporations have become their own publishing companies, creating powerful and professionally produced content that really takes charge of their reputation in the marketplace. Overall, brands are relying less and less on traditional media channels.
So what channels are working? How are new media professionals succeeding?
