Media Relations, Dress Codes, & More

During the June 15 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros shared insight on reporter etiquette, solo PR dress codes, and influencer identification tools. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. Orig asked on the LI group- http://linkd.in/kArPXz -do you send a thank you email to reporters who cover your clients? #solopr

2. Do you “dress” for work (like @KarenSwim)? #solopr

3. Klout recently announced the integration of LinkedIn, and +1 (vote up-type function). What do you think? #solopr
