On the art of PR

  • Target the media used by your target market- Understand your audience and identify their interests. Also, do more research about different media channels to have a holistic approach to the target market.
  • Have your elevator pitch practiced and ready.
  • Content- A good content isn't about storytelling, anything that adds value to the reader's life.
  • Sell your release- Build contacts, follow up and keep in contact. The job of PR to make the best choice of media and journalist influence for a particular story is still the work of, well, hard work.
  • Use a photograph- A photograph can literally sell words. Daily media are more photo-conscious than ever and are more interested in photos than the monthly special interest magazines or trade journals. Those publications are usually only interested in a photograph if it educates or informs the reader.
