Beginning in 1860, the Pony Express took 10 ½ days to bring mail from St. Joseph to Sacramento. Today, through the internet, you can communicate with people all over the world instantaneously with the click of a mouse or the I Phone on your hip.
Communications has changed dramatically in the almost 150 years since the Pony Express delivered messages over the western plains to California. Two critical changes have taken place. First is the speed by which something can be communicated and responded to and second, is the ability to control the information that is being communicated.
Speed is merely a function of technology. In addition to speed, technology has brought us the ability to communicate globally with text, video, audio, and the worldwide web with new innovations being created every day. Controlling the information is the harder part and requires the skills of seasoned professionals.
This instant delivery of information creates both opportunities and problems for all who depend on accurate information to make decisions whether they are corporations, politicians, or government officials. Opportunities arise when a client wants promote their positive messages to their target audiences through creative communications strategies. The problems occur when the client needs to combat negative messages being put out against their interests by their adversaries or competitors. And then there are the times of crisis, foreseen or unforeseen, when all communications needs to be focused on resolving the crisis and limiting its damage.
