Simple and Effective DIY PR

As a freelancer, you may think of public relations as something only big companies do, but it can be a valuable part of your marketing toolkit for yourself or for your clients. You can use PR – getting attention for a business, nonprofit, or person through unpaid or “earned” channels – to get your name and services in front of potential clients and build your professional reputation. And you can DIY it for little to no cost.

At our June virtual meetup, Rebekah Epstein of boutique PR firm fifteen media will teach her signature four-step OPEN Method, which helps get your emails opened by your dream publication.
At this event, you’ll learn:
  • What story ideas grab media attention 
  • How to figure out which media contacts to pitch 
  • Tips for writing a short, concise email pitch
If you’re a freelancer who helps clients with PR, this is a great chance to sharpen your skills and spark your creativity with new ideas.

When: Wed June 9th, 2021, 12pm- 1:30pm CDT
Location: Virtual - You will receive an email with the link to join after registration
