Ten days before I see Miley Cyrus, I’m watching almost every song on the first night of her 2009 tour thanks to YouTube.
My love affair with YouTube began more than four years ago when I discovered videos of Stevie Ray Vaughan onstage with his brother’s band, The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
In late 2006, I was telling prospective clients they needed a YouTube and MySpace presence. I was literally thrown out of offices for not advocating press releases, after all, PR stands for press releases, right? Wouldn’t want to hire someone as a public relations consultant who actually understood the economy, marketing and the future. This guy has an M.B.A.; get him out of here. Bring in the 20 year old female who just completed an internship – she’ll send press releases.
Today, you’ll get more coverage with that YouTube video – even on mainstream news – than your press release. How much has your company lost by not adopting?
