How to get press for your business

You will begin with a simple introduction to clarify what PR is and how it can help promote your business for free. You’ll then learn the importance of studying the news agenda and how you can do this to build your own media contacts list. The course will also cover how to use social media to amplify your press office, how to find journalists, and what to say when contacting them. You’ll finish with press release writing tips to apply to all your newfound PR knowledge and publicity tactics to get your creative juices flowing.
