Solo Self-Promotion, and More

This week’s #solopr chat on Twitter was a lively discussion (as always!). Questions included the following:

1. Do you have recommendations for the best ways to track radio and TV PSAs?

2. How important is it for PR pros to promote their own (personal) image, i.e. w/personal blog, tweets etc?

3. For an upcoming article on PR Conversations, what do you get out of #solopr that you don’t get anywhere else (industry assoc., etc)?

4. Last week there was a side discussion re: business plans… Do you have one, how did you develop it?

  • Promotion is really important. As for myself, I use to main methods. Traffic Geyser (mostly for video) and Unique Article Wizard. Both of these tools offer several different options for posting, including blogs and social media. I'm also looking into putting my content into print. One thing I just found out is that if you write an ebook and only work in that sphere, you've lost out on 90% of the marketing potential.

  • Thanks for sharing this, Nathan. I’m not familiar with these tools, but will be sure to check them out.
