@IndependentlyPR: Get ahead of the story!

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

@PawsPR: Research! Find out who writes/edits the column where you want your story to be featured & contact them directly.

@thePRwoman: Don’t you ever for a second get to thinking you’re irreplaceable.

@ajogrady: Never wish failure on your teammates. If you try too hard to compete you’ll end up standing alone.

@RFBCommGroup: Build strong relationships with reporters and they’ll be more likely to read your pitch.

@PJonesIncNY: Don’t pitch TV reporters 3 hours before they go on the air.

@missamykeller: Great content is still king.

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

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

@jondigumz: When emailing a press release about an event, do not forget to include the street address!

@msbananapeel: Learn when newspaper deadlines are. Don’t call pitching stories in the hour before deadline.

@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.
