PR Peeps = Gleeks
HMA PR/PRGN, Phoenix, USA, 29.06.2011
"Śpiewa, tańczy, występuje". Według Abbie i Scotta z amerykańskiej agencji HMA PR nie tylko członkowie obsady Glee musząbyć wielozadaniowi. Również konsultanci PR muszą się pochwalić różnymi umiejętnościami żeby odnieść sukces.
Ever notice how many successful singers decide to go try acting – and vice versa – with varying levels of suc
While sometimes I love it (Barbara Streisand!), and sometimes I loathe it (LeAnn Rimes, Lindsay Lohan, et al), I actually understand it. After all, can you think of any kids back in high school who were in drama but NOT in choir or chorus as well?
That’s why – even as I secretly wait for a juicy behind-the-scenes scandal to break – I have legitimate happiness for all of the kids on Glee, who just finished up their season and are prepping to go on a singing summer tour. They are literally living the dream so many celebrities have tried to achieve – singing, dancing and acting all at once. In short – they are performers.
And, in my mind, we PR peeps are no different.
In short – we are communicators.
Through public relations as it is today, we report on news, perform creative writing, pitch media, act as spokespeople, plan event, blog, strategize and more – sometimes all in the same day.
- We aren’t simply writing stories.
- We aren’t simply pitching our clients or brand.
- We aren’t simply focusing on event logistics.
Just like the kids on Glee, we get to do it all today.
I think that’s worth a happy dance or song at your desk today.
Anyone care to post theirs? I will if you will!!
