Edelman PR VP Mike Krempasky was on CNN bloviating about the failure of the "left wing" blogs to get Ned Lamont of CT elected. Krempasky ignores all the Dem candidates that were elected and really ignores all the conservative candidates supported by "Rightroots" that were soundly defeated. VP Krempasky was hired by Edelman PR to harness the power of the blogosphere for its clients like Wal-Mart. How well is VP Krempasky utilizing the blogosphere for Wal-Mart lately? Anybody wondering whether Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will be looking for a new PR firm in the near future? UPDATE: I took Roberts advice and visited Jeff Jarvis' blog BuzzMachine. Here is what I got:
You cannot buy our word of mouth. Itâ€™s ours. You cannot buy buzz. You have to earn it. The only way to get either is to create a good product or service and to treat your customers with respect by listening to and being open and honest with them.Pretty simple. He also suggests to forget about guidelines and policies and just Tell the truth.
