Attend PR Pitching for Smarties and Learn How to Prepare the Pitch that Packs a Punch



Attend PR Pitching for Smarties and Learn How to Prepare the Pitch that Packs a Punch

Marketwired’s March 30 webinar features Dan Ovesy, Michal Smart and Martin Waxman; Deirdre Breakenridge moderates

It’s clear that social media has had an indelible effect on how we share information and create influence. It’s also come to light through a couple of recent surveys that PR pros are not meeting the content needs of time-starved journalists who must now spend extra time digging for supportive content like multimedia so they can tell complete stories.

Besides becoming better at providing journalists and other influencers easy access to more robust content, PR people need to hone their PR pitching skills through a whole new approach that includes telling more powerful stories and building strong relationships with an expanded set of market influencers.

If you want to attract greater media interest and coverage, here’s your chance to learn how to make pitches that get results. On March 30, PR heavyweights Dan Ovesy, Michael Smart and Martin Waxman along with moderator Deirdre Breakenridge join together to  show us how to:

  • Prepare the pitch that packs a punch
  • Understand who’s on the other end of your pitch, from Twitter influencers to traditional media
  • Find out what content your influencers crave and learn how to give it to them
  • Leverage great examples of pitches
  • Build meaningful relations with media, bloggers and other influencers
