Disclosure: Okay, so the flowcharts’ resolution didn’t come up as pretty as possible. Just “click” on the image itself, and their regular-size will pop up! Also, read my Blue Notes for the obvious differences. I’m *so* psyched I got them up! Enjoy!
Inspired by John’s Drawings, I decided to give my own image-flowchart a whirl. Please be honest with your thoughts (on the Flowchart, my dear…not on the poor picture-snap shot. I’m *not* a photographer.)
I spent the last 2.5 days trying to upload, crop, edit to Flickr.com, etc….and well, I just had to get this up, so as advised by John, I uploaded them to my server, and got them up.
Anyways, back to my post’s points: I’ve been having problems “sharing” the difference between Online and Offline Press Releases to colleagues lately, both to my PR (Public Relations) buddies/colleagues, and those who have no idea how and why Online Press Releases would be beneficial to their website/blog.
Side note: Because David conducted some good beginner research on Press Releases here for the Mastermind Project, this is just the beginning of my Online Press Release series, and not the full-soup-to-nuts, I hoped to achieve by today. Thanks David for taking the pressure off me I desperately wanted these images to start educating everyone with the obvious difference between Offline and Online Press Releases, and why every internet marketer/blogger
shouldmust start adding them to their internet marketing arsenal right now!
“I don’t have news to share” is the common issue shared. But, when I drew out this outline to a dear colleague here at home–it did just that! Hit home with him—Oh! I’m going to get my clients, traffic to my website/blog, etc….and it’s targeted traffic I shared. So, here they are:

My cute little Entrepreneur with her lightbulb of an idea was knocked out.
And, the date covers my descriptions:
Red Lines show Instanteous Access.
Blue Lines show Nearly Instanteous Access, Often hours, but no more than a couple of days.
The Double Arrows show Comment/Trackback Ability, in which direct conversations can occur with the Consumer and Producer…and other middle wo/men on the internet!
