At a time when social media and the effective use of Twitter, Facebook, etc., are becoming key to PR practices everywhere, along comes Forbes with a post by Neil St. Clair on “Why You Should Almost Never Pay for PR.”

It’s always good to know what disenchanted or unaware observers of the changing communications scene are thinking or feeling. But be sure your clients and potential clients are aware of the insights and capacities that you as a PR pro bring to the business scene.

When does Neil St. Clair think paid PR services might be appropriate? Well, maybe if you’re Edelman. But it’s not so. More modestly sized practices have much in the way of insights and awareness to offer to, say, start-up clients. You’ve got to be competent about making that clear.
