    I was *pleasantly* surprised by David's conclusions!

    Congratulations on 400 posts. Lots of good stuff on your blog. Thanks.

    I agree with your assessment and recommendation. When working collaboratively, public relations and marketing can be most effective. But, public relations folks understand the broader picture and nuances of the conversation best and, therefore, should be the "captains of the ship."
    And, as an aside, congrats on your 400th post! Keep 'em coming.

    Congrats on your 400th post David!

    From my perspective, PR's role is to enhance the messages and brand awareness to drive marketing objectives. Hence, it's important that PR and marketing collaborate with one another on the strategy, objectives, implementation and metrics.

    I think that the size of the company will also impact who takes the lead on social media:
    * Start-up companies will likely combine this role into a pseudo marketing/PR person, thereby eliminating the line between marketing and PR
    * Medium-sized companies will most likely default to a PR person managing the day-to-day with strategy and objectives managed by marketing
    * Large-sized companies have the staff to better split the roles between PR for social media and conversation management with marketing handling social marketing efforts. In this situation, you'll likely see marketing and PR as partners on the strategy, implementation and metrics

    Thanks, all, for your comments here.

    Cece raises a good point above, regarding how an organization's size impacts which discipline takes the lead in social media. But we in PR must remember that what we're saying via SM must be consistent with and/or supportive of the way an organization wants itself or its brands positioned. PR may have input in determining positioning, but in that area marketing takes the lead. It just reinforces the need for the two disciplines to be in close and constant communication.


    After reading your blog the other day about "social media." I couldn't help but wonder if there are "antisocial media."

    I prefer to use social media marketing. It is good and easy to operate and make it effective. Social Media marketing helps you more for getting more traffic to your website. I prefer to use facebook and twitter however.


    Mostly marketing works very well to contribute more growth to the business. However the brand strategy also works well. These are important strategy by which we can able to grow our business over the international level.

    Few marketers and entrepreneurs starting to use social media marketing in order to develop their business and also to find their target niche market to get successful online.


    When working collaboratively, PR and marketing can be effective. But PR people understand the big picture and the nuances of the conversation the best, so it should be captains of the ship.
