Here’s what tech freelancer Jaikumar Vijayan has to say about PR pitches. “They are a lot better than they used to be. In fact, I’d say about 70 percent of the pitches I get are great ones. They are succinct. They get to the point. They summarize what it’s all about.”
Last month's layoffs at InformationWeek (UBM) and eWeek (Quinstreet) saddened PR with good reason. Who still writes 500-word articles about tech vendors -- the ones clients expect? Says UBM EVP Kelley Damore: "That's not the model we're in anymore. It has always been the written word, but now there's so much content out there... we need to rethink this."
