@relevebyallyn: Always set goals, expectations and deadlines.

@aelafnear: Sometimes you just need a little @nycprgirls to refresh and refocus your PR brain…

@susieQ: Email101: never put anything in an email that you wouldn’t want on the front page of @nytimes.

@SymonePR: Know your target market & the media you want to attract. Give them what they want, not what you want them to have.

@ChristensenPR: Push yourself beyond “good”. Good sucks. Be great. And if you’re already great, strive for amazing!

: Appreciate the power of the followup.

: Remember not to burn out. Take time for yourself. You’re not good to anyone if you’re a hot mess!

: Some people will forget to thank you, but that doesn’t make your presence any less important.

: Don’t pitch a product by telling them about the other sites that already covered it. So it’s not news, then?

: Avoid the grey areas. Make it your business to be a fluid communicator.

: Reporters want news, not fluff. Keep press releases short and to the point.

PR Twitter Tips: October 2014

It’s hard to believe we’re already six days in – but Happy November! October was quite a busy month – with the Hunt, Octoberfest, my birthday and Halloween I’m sad to see it go. Below are some of our favorite #PR101 Twitter Tips from the month of October. Thanks to all that tweeted.

: How to Diffuse Exposure of a Dirty Secret: get ahead of the story, admit you messed up and ‘humanize’ yourself.

: Co-worker just said, “The only ‘no’ we say is ‘no problem.'” How accurate.

: Stop relating PR to Sex and the City. The real life PR girl requires more hard work and less glamour.

: “Ask yourself – if I scrolled past this in my inbox, would I stop and look at it?” -

: What I lack in experience, I more than make up for with creativity and hard work.

: It is very important to not take for granted that content has to engage your audience.

: Just because you can use social media, doesn’t mean you should.

: Before asking a question ALWAYS think, “is there somewhere I could find the answer to this on my own first?”

: My number one saying is: PR starts when you walk out the door.

: Less is more. Keep press releases to one page.

: Good PR is not always about saying ‘Yes’. It’s just as important to be able to say ‘No’.

: You don’t build a business, you build PEOPLE. And then PEOPLE build the business.

: “Everyone is a backseat driver in communications.”

: Starting a new project? Be sure to do your research and build a relevant media list.

: Not being there doesn’t mean that you are not accountable. Switch on, connect, follow-up even on the weekend.

: As a publicist, “patience” takes on a whole new meaning.

: Mad about sports? Crazy for tech? Fan of film? Whatever you love, PR allows you to pursue your passion.

: Emailing a photo? Don’t forget a caption! Editors may not know who is in the photo.
