Lest the digital PR tide leave you with a beached feeling, here's an important distinction, pointed out by the hotel industry and which applies, presumably, to any experientially based business, say, an amusement park: "The value of editorial press coverage — whether traditional print articles, online features or blog coverage – cannot be underestimated and continues to be very important for us," says the communications VP of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, among others.
