Tip #219: Have a code

Oh, this is great: PR firm Publicize has a page of “Principles When Contacting The Media.” Very nice. Hope the company can actually live up to them.

Live the code.

Live the code.

Do have an internal code of conduct for yourself or your firm? Is it public? I think it’s a good idea. Especially since most of these principles are already Pro PR Tips!

Tip #218: Enough with the auto-nagging

Is there a new PR outreach service that people are using to automatically follow up on boring and mis-targeted press releases exactly 24 hours after they were first mis-sent to me to skip over?

Seriously, I’m getting several of these a day now, and they’re infuriating. Now I have to ignore them twice.

Too much email.

Unnecessary reminders.

Also, using the Yahoo email indicates that you don’t know where I’m working. That’s ok, I’ve moved frequently in the last few years. But it would be a bonus if you knew I am at Maker Media now.
