Talking Trust at Spin Sucks

Gini Dietrich, a longtime friend and one of the PR profession's true thought leaders, invited me to share my thoughts on trust signals on her Spin Sucks blog. 

I was especially grateful for her editor's note at the end, which reads as follows:

This article wouldn’t publish here if we didn’t 100%, heck 1,00,000,000%, agree with its author.

We’ve longed for PR to move beyond earned media for years—maybe even a decade. And, because this is my blog, I can promote a little self-serving message here: get yourself PESO Model certified. Everything Scott describes is what the PESO Model certification helps you do. Credibility, authority, expertise, and trust. They are at the center of a well-implemented PESO Model program.

And, Scott, when you have more on your trust signals, please come back. This is amazing and you are correct.
