I’ll be on a fun panel with a bunch social media wonks tonight, January 19, run by the Social Media Club, about social media (surprise) and public relations. I’ll be signing copies of my book, Pro PR Tips, at the event. Co-panelist Brian Solis will also be there signing his book, Putting the Public Back in Public Relations.

Tip #136: A blessing in disguise

Tip #135: Give us a little to go on
Dear PR pro: If you leave me five phone messages telling me about your “great new product,” please understand that I won’t call you back unless you tell me what said product actually is.
Thanks to Kent German for today’s tip.
