Pricing, Current Events, & More

During the August 24 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros discussed sharing pricing information, using current events in media pitches, and social media referral sources. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. We’ve seen posts lately from @MackCollier, @spinsucks and @ericamallison on this lately: do you post your prices online? #solopr

2. @KeithTrivitt of @prsa reminded PR pros today not to use the earthquake in unrelated pitches. When do current events make sense? #solopr

3. Reported that StumbleUpon drives half of all social media traffic to sites (with Qs around quality of traffic). Experiences? #solopr
