@PawsPR: Pay attention to detail and keep your copy crisp and clear.

@KAmuses: It’s called earned media for a reason. Earn a reason for people to talk about you and media to cover you.

@BrandSpeakAsia: Key messages should be targeted/talk to particular stakeholders of a brand for it to be effective.

@southernbliss_: General email advice: short paragraphs and bullet points, please.

@TheSpotBlog1: Fill your networking time 80% in your target market and 20% in your professional field.

@NkemOnwudiwe: If your press release headline is more than 60 characters, it’s no more a headline. ‘Keep It Short & Sweet!’

@kathrynelise: Never take ‘no’ for an answer.

@VanGirlsPR: When you have to wear heels for long events, pack flats for the trip home!

@BrandSpeakAsia: Identify and constantly update media contacts to build and strengthen relationships.

@EmilyL_Langford: If your approach is unprofessional, your results, well, you won’t have any.

@LaurenAPruner: PR Motto – “Help me Help YOU!”

@smittencreative: “If you don’t tell your story, someone else will.” – Unknown

@smittencreative: PR is about knowing your audiences better than they know themselves.

@WomenInPR1: As a publicist you must always think strategically & out of the box at the same time!

@PawsPR: Embrace numbers. Use statistical data to track the effectiveness of your social media campaigns, website hits & ads.

@PJonesIncNY: Focus on details. Nothing hurts the credibility of a pitch, a proposal or a program like sloppy mistakes.

@PawsPR: It’s critical to stay on top of the news and current events. Always know the latest about what is happening in your field.
