Over the years we’ve made a number of videos about the online media and good online public relations practice.

An Inconvenient PR Truth
Produced in January 2010 the video highlights the issue of irrelevant press release emails a.k.a. PR spam. It was watched over 2,000 times on its first day and was a key element of the campaign lead by RealWire and involving some major figures in the UK public relations community which lead to the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR), Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA), Investor Relations Society (IRS) and the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) jointly producing a "Media Spamming Charter".
The Charter sets out detailed guidelines for PR professionals on good practice for media relations. This was the first and only time that all four relevant professional bodies have co-authored such a document.
Social Media News Release
An overview of the Social Media News Release. This video is showing its age a little as it was produced in July 2007 and back then RealWire was called WebitPR and our Chief Executive, Adam, had more hair.
It’s been viewed nearly 30,000 times though and still serves as a good history of how the press release evolved.
