Many companies think that press releases alone should be enough to get them press coverage. In fact, it's PR pitches, not press releases, that bring home the lion's share of media coverage these days.

PR Pitches

  • PR Pitch Tips - If you're going to play the publicity game, you're going to have to learn how to pitch reporters and media contacts.
