A question I get asked is what skills does someone need to be a public relations specialist. Basically, you need to be observant. You also need to be able to do a review of your assets (website and social media) and make sure you check out when the media checks you out. Do you appear to be industry expert-worthy? Next, you need to understand what makes a story newsworthy or valuable to an audience. What is the media talking about right now and/or what is relevant right now (seasonality, relevance, etc) and how can you insert yourself into that conversation? You need to understand how to “hook” a journalist in with a great subject line so they read your newsworthy story idea. Finally, you need to know how to find the right journalist. Google makes that very easy for us! “Who writes about [industry] for [publication].” Just like that.
Here’s a video I did on my Get PR Famous Formula which outlines the specific steps in more detail:
It’s not hard to be your own PR Specialist. Follow the system above. Develop relationships with journalists. Pitch consistently and valuably and you will continue to get the yes. Don’t forget to connect with journalists on social media too. Make sure you build relationships with them there, not just pitching. You want to like, share, and comment on their work. Make sure they are feeling the love. I promise they know who is doing this. The more eyes they get on their work the better. Consider doing this vs. just pitching right out of the gate. You’ll develop a much better relationship with the media. Use the internet and social media and find journalists, build relationships, and then pitch great stories!
