Join us for our November Lunch ‘n Learn to discover how public relations has changed in a digital era and why it’s more important than ever to forge meaningful relationships with journalists.
We all feel your passion for your business. The issue is, that passion might not be enough to get you covered in TechCrunch or WIRED. You need to have a solid story; you also need to have some solid relationships. Corey Herscu from RNMKR is going to talk to you about his successes as an agency owner, how to create relationships of your own, and – most importantly – how to ensure your favorite journalist can’t wait to get your next pitch.
