What PR can do for your brand

5 April 2012 One CommentBy Sarah Shaw

Learning how to leverage good PR for yourself is a total MUST to keep any business afloat!  Once you have some PR, it will give you credibility which makes buyers feel more comfortable about buying from you – especially if you are a new brand. Staying on top of your media calendar is the key to a successful PR campaign.  Be sure to look at all the magazine websites and click on the media kit tab and make a calendar you can follow to pitch on target each month.

Here are a few to get you started:
Condenast.com Select magazine and media kit – most have editorial calendars
Hearst.com  Select magazine on left and then select media kit. You cannot get it for Oprah. Some have editorial calendars and others you have to look at the advertising calendar.
Timeinc.com Most have editorial calendars
