PR Apps, Relocating, Time Management, & More

During the February 23 #solopr Twitter chat, PR pros shared valuable insight on PR apps, relocating to a new city, covering production costs, and favorite time management tips. The following questions helped guide the conversation:

1. What is the best smartphone platform and apps for #PR?

2. Do you have any tips for getting started as a #solopr, when simultaneously moving to a new city?

3. Have you ever had a TV or radio show ask your #PR client to cover the production costs of the segment? Is it legit?

4. What are your favorite time management tips as a #solopr? How do you get it all done?

Be sure to check out the transcript in PDF for the full discussion. What’s your take on these interesting questions?

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!

    Have had both. TV has always been bogus. What you get is a nicely narrated, but very expensive piece of video. Pat Summerall used to do a lot of these. When I was first approached with TV, the cost was about $4,000. Now those costs have risen to nearly $15,000.

    Did a live radio show at a resort a year ago, all they wanted at that time was lodging and one meal. Same group has added a $1,500 production fee. We took a pass. The results were slim the first time.

    When approached ask very specifically about air time and referrals.
