It’s the end of another summer (sad face), but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for fall. Here are some of our favorite Twitter Tips from the last month of summer. Thanks to all that tweeted.
@PawsPR: Avoid fluff in press releases. Stick strictly to the who, what, when, where, why, and how.
@allyn_lewis: Don’t EVER use the words “forget” or “forgot” in PR.
@SDGreenall: Don’t over do it on the hashtags. It makes people dizzy!
@amandzing1: Your hiding doesn’t stop me writing about the issue, in fact, it adds to the story.
@BrandSpeakAsia: In PR, it is important to know what makes the news. Reading and monitoring the news are important keys!
@coffeeandcardis: Email will only take you so far. Pick up the phone as part of your follow-up strategy.
@allyn_lewis: Every PR girl needs a personal brand. If you can’t generate hype for yourself, how can you do it for a client?
@PawsPR: When pitching journalists, secure third-party sources in advance when asked for quotes.
@NancyG_PR: Always under-promise and over-deliver.
@PrettyPeets_: Sometimes you want to be careful how you talk and treat other people, you never know who they are or will become.
