Building Media Lists, Managing Clients’ Social Media Needs, & More

During the January 4 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed building national media lists on a budget, using mindmap software, handling a client’s social media presence, and 2012 PR resolutions. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. How do you build a national media contact list when you don’t have budget to buy one? #solopr

2. Have you ever used mindmap software (e.g., Mindnode, iThoughts) for key messages, showing hierarchies, etc.? #solopr

3. When you’re collaborating with a client on their social network presences, how do you handle it logistically? #solopr

4. We avoided the requisite “resolutions” post on the #solopr blog, but do you have any you’d like to share? How can we help?
