Subcontractors, PR Competitions, & More

During the June 29 #solopr Twitter chat, independent PR pros shared insight on finding subcontractors, entering PR competitions, & using group auto-sharing tools. Specifically, the following questions were addressed:

1. Have you used eLance or similar sites to find *subcontractors*? Success/fail? #solopr

2. What is the best way to enter PR competitions without revealing confidential information of your client? #solopr

3. Are you currently using a group-oriented auto-sharing tool for blog posts? Pros and cons? Do they have value for clients? #solopr
