On Tuesday I was a guest for Enterprise Nation's 'lunch and learn' session 'PR in times of uncertainty' hosted by founder Emma Jones.
It was a 30 minute power Q+A session where the audience fired questions about how they could seek publicity / whether they should seek publicity / and where they could promote their businesses during these uncertain times.
I was told it was a heavily subscribed lunch time session which was great to hear that entrepreneurs are still wanting to promote their businesses despite the lockdown and economic climate.
Some of the questions Emma and the audience asked me were:
How should businesses manage their PR at this difficult time?
What is the angle businesses should be adopting when approaching journalists?
Is it appropriate right now to share good news stories?
How can a business owner best contact a journalist and how do they know which publication to contact?
What's an example of a good headline for an email to catch the attention of a busy journalist?
How do you connect with a journalist on Twitter?
How do you get the attention of a journalist so you stand out in their overflowing inbox?
What publications would be good for the education sector?
How do I get local PR?
Scroll down to watch the video and you will hear my replies.
