A catch phrase will go here soon.

New PR Rule #1: Don't ask bloggers for links.


If you want to be credible in the blogosphere please do not have your PR people beg for links…. beg for links yourself!

Blogs about being authentic and direct. You don’t have PR people write blog posts for you and you don’t have PR people lobby for links… come on people, get with the program.

I’ve officially had enough today… I’m taking a half day… I’m out of here.

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
