The takeaways from this #pdxchat:
- How do you get your message, story pitch, or idea in front of a news organization?
- What are the news cycles for the various mediums? They’re vastly different in the age of social media.
- When is it best to pitch an idea? Through what channel: social, email, phone?
- What should a pitch look like? What are the biggest mistakes to avoid?
This panel will outline best business practices that anyone can use, plus, we will reserve time for your questions.
Bring business cards, your smartphone, or tablet and make media connections to add to your rolodex; digital or otherwise.
See you there!
