I was just reading Mike Arrington’s note about dealing with PR agencies and such. If you aren’t a journalist or a blogger with an audience you have no idea what Mike is talking about. I get hundreds of emails every day, many of which are from people, companies, and PR firms asking me to blog stuff.
I absolutely hate dealing with this stuff. For the most part I just simply don’t. I don’t respond. I learned that answering email causes even more email and I simply don’t have time. All I did yesterday was dig through email and I barely made a dent. That’s why I’m up at 2:40 a.m. editing videos.
Anyway, it’s a real problem for a small company (or even a big one) to get noticed in today’s world. I don’t know what to do about it. I’ve given up.
One thing, though. If you have a product or a blog or something else you want my readers to try out (or for me to try out) leave a comment here, do NOT send email! That way everyone can get pitched and my readers can help me sort out what’s important to dig more into with my video camera.
