  • The one tweak that landed a full-page feature in OUTSIDE magazine and created a bestseller.
  • What the media really wants.

WEEK 2: Introducing Yourself to the Media

The PR world is noisy and the media have a lot of choices, so you need to put your best foot forward and grab their attention.

  • How to organize media materials for the best results.
  • How to find media contact information.
  • What you should always include in a pitch.
  • How and when to follow up with the media.
