It’s a fact: the ratio of PR pros to reporters stands at 6:1. That metric is expected to become even more lopsided in the future.
For the professional communicator this means there are fewer journalists to pitch, and those left will open only the most relevant pitches.
Join PRNEWS on June 27 when some of the top minds in media relations will offer you tips and tactics to help your pitch stand out from the numerous others journalists receive daily. This course will also teach you how to effectively communicate with the media to build successful relationships and, ultimately, get the coverage you need.
As a bonus, our trainers will tackle your pitches, offering you confidential advice on how to bolster the chances that journalists will want to learn about your brand’s story (see below).
Find out how you can raise the chances that your pitch will be among the few. And once read -- improve the odds your story will be published. Register today!

- The art of identifying the right journalists for your industry on sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and how research can be your secret weapon in media relations

We’ll also have a portion of the webinar where our trainers will discuss pitches from select audience members. The identity of the pitcher will be kept confidential. (If you’d like to be part of this exercise, please contact Carol Brault at firstname.lastname@example.org)
As a double bonus, during the webinar, ALL attendees will be given the opportunity to send a sample pitch to our trainers; they will then provide confidential feedback after the webinar.
