To experience PR success, you must identify the mistakes made in the process of creating it and how to correct them. Today, I’m going to guide you through putting your story out there in a way that captivates your audience and avoids the common pitfalls in PR. We’ll talk about what you need to do before sending your PR story to the journalists in order for it to be published. 

What You Will Learn in This Episode:

– The top 5 mistakes made in the PR space and how to correct them

– How to position yourself in the PR space for long-term success

When you send a PR story and it gets rejected or it doesn’t work out as you imagined, don’t give up. Beware of any mistakes that you perhaps made, but there is no need to sabotage your PR success and limit your chances of making it in the PR world – you CAN do this!
