Is there still a place for PR wire services in the 2018 communicator?s toolbox?

Communications Conversations

PR wire services have always been a bit of a mystery to me. I’ve never been a big user, and I’ve never been a big advocate. Maybe it’s been the kind of work I do (primarily social/digital the last eight-plus years). Maybe it’s been the kinds of companies I worked for in the past. Maybe it’s a combo of both. But, despite my opinions, PR wire services are still around–primarily Business Wire and PR Newswire.

Sword and the Script

In 1999 I was introduced to an emerging nightmare in high-tech PR. PR pros, who at that time, were still new to a feature that Microsoft introduced around 1995, were sending pitches or releases by email with tracked-changes still on.

I recall an agency staffer running around the PR firm making sure everyone knew how to prevent it from happening.
