No I’m not talking about PageRank.
As we provide more and more cutting edge blogginess we get more and more PR folks pinging us re their amazing clients. My wife is in PR so I know what slog the whole thing can be. So my good deed for the day will be to get some of your clients a bit of digital ink:
NearbyNow, an interesting local product search/shopping co has launched a service where they make product search Iphone apps in partnership with well-known brands like Seventeen Magazine and Runners World (find the running shoes Sarah Palin wears near you!). According to Krista, who gets the award for the hardest working PR gal in the biz, the Seventeen Fashion finder app is now #1 in the Iphone App Store Lifestyle Channel.
The Economist is launching the Economist Media Innovation Competition to find the coolest thing out there. I love the prize: “The winning presenter will receive exclusive bragging rights and a free subscription to The Economist“. Ah, print media. Thanks for the pitch Nicole.
That’s it for now. I may add a few more later.
Note to PR Pros. In the future just send me a two sentence pitch with one link. If I can get my act together I’ll try to make this a regular feature of the blog and include the more interesting pitches.
