Gaining Momentum Through Public Relations

How to pitch yourself and your company to the media

ABOUT THIS SESSION

Secure your place today and learn how to pitch the media and generate your own media success! Although social media is an important part of your public relations strategy, traditional media relations and working with a variety of news outlets is still needed to communicate your messages.

We know that entrepreneurs are a special group of people. You are smart and have newsworthy ideas and businesses, but many times entrepreneurs can’t support a Big PR Agency Budget or a multi-month campaign spearheaded by consultants. Does that mean that you don’t deserve your own PR? No. You do!! Come learn how to figure out your story and communicate it with an audience that can take your business success to the next level.

THANK YOU to McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, LLP, for sharing their classroom with us to host this session.
