To help out our public relations community and in order to share valuable tips among one another, this week we asked social media, “What should your first words be in a media interview?”
Media relations and public relations experts have weighed in on social media and we are featuring some of their answers in today’s video. Now we want to know, do you agree with their comments? For instance, should you introduce yourself in a media interview if the reporter doesn’t? Should you greet your audiences or the interviewer? Should you review how this process will go with your interviewer? Should you thank your listeners for tuning in, for reading, or for watching? Do your first words change depending on if your organization is facing a crisis?
We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Comment here and on our social media pages to join the discussion.
This question is one of a series of debates in the media relations, crisis communications, public relations, and social media industries where you and your colleagues can share observations with each other. Yes, YOU are invited to share your bite size bits of best practices. Here is how:
