Here are several ways we can work together.
Telephone Consulting (or via Skype)
If you have just a few questions or a bigger problem and you need my advice, consider a phone consultation, or let’s get on Skype. I can prepare you for a media interview, critique your writing and pitches, brainstorm story ideas, or work with you before a book launch. My rate is $300 an hour, and you can purchase it in 15-minute increments. Email me at JStewart@PublicityHound.com and explain the problem. Also run a few times and dates by me.
If You Need a Publicist…
I’m not a publicist. If you need one, or a PR person who can write press releases, pitch your story to the media, or help you with a book launch, I can lead you in the right direction. I have a large circle of contacts in the marketing and PR industry, and I will refer you to someone whose work I can stand behind. But I must know your budget for PR, or a range of how much you can afford. If you cannot afford a publicist and you need to do it yourself, I can recommend one or more of my learning tools that will walk you through the process step-by-step.
Your PR Program
I create year-long PR plans for organizations and teach staff how to implement them. I also do in-house training on publicity and social media topics such as:
–Training your media spokesperson (on camera) how to put her best foot forward and not in her mouth during media interviews
–Creating a crisis communications plan for your business
–Showing your PR department how to best work with local and national media
–PR Program management (your team does the work)
–Social media training that establishes valuable relationships with your customers and target audience
–Helping your team create a blog and contribute to it regularly
–Showing you the many ways to use LinkedIn to connect with your target audience and with journalists
Brown-bag Lunch Sessions
Save time and money by letting me train your staff during a brow-bag lunch session, over the phone. PR agencies and other organizations have hosted me when their staffs needed a quick refresher, brainstorming, or a how-to session on a particular topic.
My Mentor Program
If you need long-term access to me, consider my mentor program for six months or one year. Call me at 262-284-7451 for an initial consultation and to see if we’re a good fit.
