Blogging for PR

The blogosphere is a great way to get your message across and reach
wider audiences but if you are thinking about harnessing it for PR
purposes, be aware.  As with all things web 2.0 blogging for PR can be
done and done well but you have to approach it in a new way.   When
approaching a blogger:

Don’t try to sell to them or buy their good words – it won’t go over
well;
Establish rapport up front if you can, network with them in other
forums and develop a relationship that shows your sincerity;
Relate your offering to a blog post they may have made on an
applicable subject;
Contact a select few bloggers via a personalized email that include
links to pertinent pages or info;
If applicable, offer a reciprocal link;
Don’t use a traditional press release format – it will be perceived as
too “suity”.
