By Gerard Braud –
On Monday we posed the question on the BraudCast YouTube Channel, “What is the best way to get in touch with a busy reporter?” Communications and public relations professionals know that it takes a well-established long-term relationship with the media in order to gain their attention. Busy reporters seem to be knocking at your door in the case of a crisis, but may be hard to reach when you want to deliver a positive press release or news conference about your organization. Your communications colleagues weighed in on our social media accounts and I am sharing their answers in this follow-up video. Please share your comments on our social media, as well as here on the blog, and subscribe to the weekly question on the BraudCast YouTube Channel to participate each week.
This question is one of a series of discussion questions about media relations, crisis communications, public relations, and social media. Yes, YOU are invited to share your bite size bits of best practices each week. Here is how:
