My approach to PR has always come from a "wingin' it" perspective. I am not a PR pro - but have done a lot of the public relations and strategic planning for our company and we've had some good success with the tactics we've used.
Thanks to everyone for such a rockin' GNO Tuesday night!
One of the biggest things for anyone is just getting out there, asking questions, and networking with the right people - a.k.a. making friends. I was asked to blog for Entrepreneur.com from that perspective - here are a few of the posts that might be helpful for those of you without a big budget who are looking to jump out there to get some coverage for you and your business but who are a little hesitant!
- This week our featured blog was Cafe Johnsonia - seriously watch out when you go there you will get hungry!
- Our Dream Big story is amazing about a women who "made over" women's shelters -
- Our featured "mompreneur" on Support Your Local Mama is Modern Mommy
