PRketing™ May Be Patented, But PR Still Leads
Each time we consider the trend of PR and marketing "merging," it looks like it's becoming more pronounced. Now we have D S Simon (DSS) winning a trademark from the U.S. Patent Office for the term PRketing. Frank Strong brings this to our attention in another post on the two crafts coming together. This isn't a matter of PR being swamped by crass commercialization, though. For clients need to relate well before selling a lot. With social media in play, "right conduct" may well become the principal value of both.
