Who can be a Solo PR Pro?

While this blog has “PR” in the name, I believe professionals in a wide variety of disciplines can learn from each other here. Yes, I know many of these occupations don’t fall under the banner of public relations, but independents in these fields share many issues, challenges and success strategies in common, and there is often a lot of cross-over.

One of the most fulfilling aspects of being an independent consultant is that you can tackle new areas – and expand the services you offer – based on your skills and interest. Solo PR Pros can be involved in:

  • Business consulting
  • Branding
  • Community relations
  • Corporate communications
  • Direct advertising
  • Event planning
  • Fundraising
  • Government relations
  • Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC)
  • Internal communications
  • Internet marketing
  • Investor relations
  • Journalism
  • Market research
  • Marketing
  • Media buying
  • Media relations
  • Non-profit management
  • Product management
  • Promotions
  • Public affairs
  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Social media consulting
