Ring in the New Year by resolving to kick those "but-that's-the-way-we've-always-done-it" writing approaches to the curb. Make 2018 your best year ever with these five new and convention-busting best PR writing practices:

  • Reach "readers" where they are: Get a reality check from the latest world literacy study
  • Hook 'em with a savvy structure: Choose a form that's been proven in the lab to draw more readers
  • Avoid the worst PR quote clichés: Write soundbites that delight readers, not yourself
  • Cut clutter in social media: What's the optimum length for your blog post? Your Facebook status update?
  • Overcome the obstacles to mobile reading: Get the word out on the small screen
