Become Shopping Search Engine Launch Party Confirmation LetterBitePR is handling Become's publicity and they're doing a fantastic job. Part of being fantastic PR firm means being amicable to bloggers. BitePR has done a pretty good job with me so far. When I got to the hotel last early this morning [after almost 12 hours of travel] there was a bottle of wine sitting on the table with a letter from Michael Yang. I have no idea how BitePR even found out where I was staying much less that they actually appreciated me posting about one of their clients. Traditional PR firms typically view a blogger as an enemy but Bite's viewed me as an allie and it shows.
Ever wonder what a beta preview confirmation email looks like from a PR firm with a clue? Now you don't.
