IN FOCUS – PR Books of the Month

 Lead with a Story: A Guide to Crafting Business Narratives That Captivate, Convince, and Inspire
Paul Smith tells great stories. He also teaches how to tell great stories. That’s the magic of this book. It will appeal to leaders looking for leadership messages as well as PR pros and content marketers. Not just how-tos but also a collection of tales to learn from and enjoy.

Content Strategy for the Web, 2nd Edition
No question PR pros need to get familiar and practiced in the art of content marketing. No better way than the new 2nd edition by Kristina Halvorson and Melissa Rach. Highly rated, practical and accessible without losing the importance of strategy as a foundation for content marketing success. Must-read!

Spin! How the News Media Misinform and Why Consumers Misunderstand
Bob Conrad says they’re biased, error-prone, misleading and, on occasion, devious or even liars. No, he’s not referring to public relations people. He’s talking about the news media. His book is a thought-provoking look at media bias and challenges for news readers, audiences and PR pros alike.

PRoactive: The Public Relations Job Hunter’s Guide
Seriously looking for a PR job? Get PRoactive – the new book by Jeff Domansky, aka The PR Coach. It’s loaded with valuable PR job strategies & practical tips on search tools, social networking, public relations resumes & portfolios, best PR jobs websites and much more. (Oct 2011)

Curation Nation: How to Win in a World Where Consumers are Creators
Curious about curation? Steven Rosenbaum explains the important role curation plays in a world of information overload. He explores going beyond simple aggregation by talking to thinkers from media, advertising, publishing, business and web technology. This book is valuable reading for bloggers, PR pros and marketers knowledgeable about content marketing and looking to stand out from a noisy, often irrelevant internet.

Welcome to the Fifth Estate Geoff Livingstone takes a close look at the impact and influence of the Fifth Estate or social media. He offers tips and strategies on navigating social media for PR strategists, business communicators, community managers, marketers  and anyone trying to thrive and survive in the new media world where it’s less mass media than media by the masses.

The Social Media Bible: Tactics, Tools, and Strategies for Business Success is a best seller, designed to help corporate, small business, and non-profits use social media to reach audiences with powerful messages and efficiency. In this Second Edition, each of the three parts – Tactics, Tools, and Strategies – have been updated to reflect the most current social media trends.

Another new PR Book of the Month is Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans. Former insurance industry insider and PR executive Wendell Potter blows the whistle and exposes PR pros’ propaganda tricks–fake grass-roots organizations, bogus scientific studies–and expresses regret for his role.

Potter also points to the failure of America’s for-profit health-insurance system: their underhanded methods to “dump the sick”; skyrocketing premiums and deductibles that put health care beyond the reach of millions; and the obscene salaries executives rake in while denying benefits to patients.

Real Time Marketing & PR

Our 2nd public relations Book of the Month is Real-Time Marketing and PR: How to Instantly Engage Your Market, Connect with Customers, and Create Products that Grow Your Business Now Written by David Meerman Scott, it’s a fresh look at the decade’s new marketing challenges.

He reveals the practical steps to take your business into the real-time era. Find out how to act and react flexibly as events occur, position your brand in the always-on world of the Web, and avoid embarrassing mistakes and missteps. What counts today is speed and agility. While your competitors scramble to adjust, you can seize the initiative, open new channels, and grow your brand in real-time.
