How to Engage with Journalists on Email and Social Media

media relations


On-demand webinars are available for one year after the live webcast.

When your email lands in a journalist’s inbox, does she recognize your name? Or are you just part of the daily flood of indiscriminate pitches?

Join PR News on June 28 to hear from some of the top minds in media relations on how to combine social media and email to build mutually productive relationships with journalists.

Reporters are individuals in the extreme, so while some will love social media, others are committed to working over email exclusively. Whichever communication method resonates with a journalist, the work starts long before sending a pitch.
