  6. 6. Competitive Intelligence<br />&quot;Every single day, someone, somewhere is discussing something important to your business; your brand, your executives, your competitors, your industry. Are they hyping-up your company, building buzz for your products? Or, are they criticizing your service, complaining to others about your new product launch?&quot;<br />— Andy Beal, Marketing Pilgrim <br /> -<br />

  10. 10. PR Opportunities and Marketing<br />Using social media platforms to leverage brands making them seem a lot more subjective and having personalities.<br />Traditional PR tactics are just about &quot;push&quot; information and engaging media outlets to try to reach ANYone, no matter where they fit on this scale. They&apos;re about number of clips and media hits, and just getting earned media. It is, for all intents and purposes, a one-way information stream. <br />&quot;New&quot; PR tactics actually build on to those techniques, and allow for the conversation to continue, allowing PR professionals to do what they do best- influence. So, imagine the possibilities of brand engagement through a PR channel that distributes a press release, which a newspaper picks up, prints both through their paper and publishes to their website <br />Great, nothing new so far. But if you as a PR professional hop onto that site and work your way (transparently) into the conversation in the &quot;comments&quot; section responding to that article, now you&apos;ve got an opportunity to extend your influence. <br /> -<br />
