"You mustn't be satisfied with the old days when you have access and good relationship with the news editor. We have seen strong evidence of company successes and failures especially here in Asia, where the social media numbers is not only a bluff," said Adrian Prasanto, Indosat's Head of Public Relations.
With the advent of new media, we are rapidly moving away from one-to-one media relations environment, where it is increasingly more crucial to build relationships not just with reporters but also with everyone else.
"Social networks have given the public a voice which can even be louder than the corporate voice. Communicators must be well verse with this new information consumption and learn creative ways to capture the attention of the increasingly digitally-savvy audience," shared Simon Si, Regional Communications Head of Jobstreet Malaysia.
Andrew Goldman, Managing Director of Cohn & Wolfe Indonesia adds, "Media commentary is being influenced not only by the complexities of business competition but also by the interrelated views of consumers, company employees, NGOs, Governments and others. Transparency is becoming increasingly important as more and more stakeholders start to scrutinise the region, meaning that it is vital to map influential stakeholders and build strong relationships with them."
