Sometimes I see something that just makes me cough and splutter a bit, and so it is with this blog post (the link is below).
It contains good advice for the PR community. It says follow journalists on Twitter. It says interact with them.
It then says flirt with them.
If there are any young female PR people taking this nonsense seriously out there, please note that even if you look exactly like a young Jerry Hall I have no wish to end up looking like Rupert Murdoch. I’m happy to meet up for coffee, discuss the commissions on which I’m working and the papers for which I write – but please, “friendly and professional” is fine.
Need help interacting with journalists? My media training can help – email me and we’ll talk.
