Holiday Pitching, Renegade Spokespeople, and More

This week’s #solopr Twitter chat was once again a fast-moving hour full of useful tips from some of the top pros in PR consulting nationwide. We covered some timely topics this week, covering  the following questions:

1. Is there a “dead zone” around the US 4th of July holiday (meaning, is it difficult to communicate during this time? Slow time for news?)? How do you handle?

2. Where are most of your new clients/prospects coming from today?

3. The Gen McChrystal interview scandal fallout continues, and the PR person who set it up has “resigned.” Has your spokesperson ever gone off message? What do you do?

Be sure to check out the transcript in PDF for real-world insights on these topics that you can apply today. What are your experiences – let us know in the comments!

The #solopr chat – held each Wednesday from 1-2 p.m. Eastern – is a weekly ritual for some of the most savvy Solo PR Pros on Twitter. Anyone with a Twitter account is welcome to participate – see Join Us for the #solopr Chat on Twitter to find out how!

  • Great topics to cover. I especially enjoyed the 4th of July article.
