April showers bring May flowers have a whole new meaning for M and I. April was a CRAZY filled month with traveling, planning and some great PR Twitter tips of course. Below are a few of our favorites from the month. Thanks to all that contributed.
@MissNyle: You never lie to reporters. Once you do there is no going back.
@lingerie_addict Don’t ask a blogger to talk about you as a “favor”. Why does your brand deserve a favor over all the other ones?
@PeaRlBellaPR: News is anything that is new, different and creative. Remember that when creating pitches, press releases & campaigns.
@ELINEHOFMAN: ”If you think your job ends on Friday, think again. Opportunity doesn’t sleep.”
@AmbersMouthwash: When contacting editors, keep things short, polite and to the point.
@PeaRlBellaPR Tie your pitch into an emotion. The media is more likely to respond if you can make them laugh, cry or even feel anger.
@IndependentlyPR: 1. Know your audience 2. Stop forcing music down their throats and over saturating social media/market 3. Engage.
@kulasj: Invest in your work but strive for balance. Work is something you do, not who you are.
@WomenInPR1: Increasing brand awareness for our clients in this climate is much easier if we remember to think like reporters.
@Fentselite: Act, don’t react.
@Leanne_Barton: You cannot efficiently evaluate the success of a campaign if don’t set SMART objectives at the beginning.
@JemimaFaye: ‘˜Success only comes to those who persevere no matter how many times you get rejected and fail.’
@jeffkart: If you’re going to send me a pitch, please include a link that i can share/link to if i decide to write about it.
@MahAlGhalib: It is always better to under promise and over achieve than to over promise and under achieve!
