Earlier this year I contributed a guest post at Copyblogger on the fact that copywriters need to understand data.

If your company has not (fully) embraced the web yet and decided to do so today, it isn’t as simple as flicking a switch. Nor should it be. Digital marketing is a journey, one in which both team members and organizations should embark on rather than simply taking a “check the box” mentality.
Ideas on this blog have been viewed several million times by visitors globally. What has been the most popular? Today I thought it would be fun to share the 20 most viewed posts of all time on The Future Buzz. After all, you’re the ones sharing them (and thank you for that).
I’m convinced that public relations practitioners need to flip their thinking. Simply: from reactive to proactive. In a world where every company is a media company, PR should lead. But only if they can become truly proactive in their approach to the practice.
