[PR] PR Planning for January 2018


The first of our monthly series kicks off the year!

It's no coincidence that you're reading about really cool businesses in magazines right now. But those businesses didn't sit back in their shops waiting for the media to come calling. They went for it and got it! Yes, they pitched their favorite glossy magazines, and some of them heard back and were featured.

This. Could. Be. You!!

Tin Shingle is your PR Campaign Partner in crime, and we've got your roadmap for what ideas to pitch to the media for this month. No, you don't need to be a professional PR person. You need to be a go-getter with fresh ideas. Listen to this TuneUp to get some of those ideas and some gumption to carry them out.

Covered in this Live TuneUp Broadcast:

  • Secret Ideas Magazines Want Now:
    If you're reading magazines right now for all of their Resolution tips, recipes, great body tricks, and more New Year New You themes, and if you're thinking "My business would have been a perfect fit here!" We will tell you - yeah - it could have! If you had pitched the magazine in time. We'll tell you what you should be pitching right now.
  • Sneak Peek into Tin Shingle's Editorial Calendars
