@PawsPR: 9 times out of 10, an email’s subject line determines whether or not it gets opened.

@iamsheabutta: When in doubt, leave them out. Or at least cross-check your lists.

@samanthaperry: Dear PR Company, sending me a newsletter with no unsubscribe link is spam.

@CharissaLauren: PR no no: do not set up automatic Twitter DMs for every new follower.

@VanGirlsPR: Remember, at the end of the day, you are your own brand. It’s okay to sell yourself!

@IndependentlyPR: Get ahead of the story!

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