Ten things PR @ GSU has taught me


Thanks for sharing this post. I feel that everyone should read this because it is 100% true. I have a LinkedIn account and it is very useful. Even if you still have time in school set it up and get your name out there. Connecting with professionals is the biggest start to your future.  Congratulate them on a project they did or just simply say hey. Let them know who you are. Having a well developed and updated resume is EXTREMELY important. Let them know what you are capable of.  Twitter is very important for networking, so having a twitter account can help if you use it properly. Job searching is a must. You do have to see what is out there. One mistake people make is that they have their heart set out on one thing and wait till after graduation to start looking. It is wise to have a plan B or even a plan C just in case.  Lastly, you do have to beware of facebook. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to my mom’s place of business and heard them talking about someone’s facebook page. So be aware, be prepared, and thanks for posting this.

Blog comment important


I have to agree with you. It is very important to create dialogue between blogs. I help bring awareness to your blog while creating blog on blog relationships. Comments are a major part of blogging especially if you do it right. Taking the time to create an effective blog can make a world of difference in blogging. I also agree that blogs can be very informative. Blogs are like your personal insight on whatever topic you are looking for. For example, your post is very informative and for the people who are new to blogging this will be a great post for them to read. Keep up the good work.

One week of twitter

One week of twitter


Sorry I can’t help you but I just want to say I know exactly how you feel. I didn’t get a Twitter account until this class. I was super confused. I was probably boring my followers because I have no idea what to say. Nothing important goes on in my life to be tweeting. I was like what am I suppose to tweet; “Christen is sitting in the den watching Vampire diaries and Supernatural?” I was lost. Now, I sort of get it. I enjoy following people, companies, and organizations but as far as my followers go, I have no idea what to tell them.

Getting your creative juices flowing


                I find these tips very useful. It is harder than you think to create an effective blog that catches people attention. I find that being original and making your blog more personal will make you stand out from other bloggers. I find that adding personal pictures you took yourself is also a great tip.  Anyone can find pictures off the internet it is unique and different to post your own. These tips are very helpful for beginning bloggers. Keep up with the good work.

Want a hotel Upgrade?

Want a hotel upgrade?


I find this very interesting. Hotels that post on the internet have seen improvements with more guests. However, what concerns me is that since this guy post this article people will start taking advantage of hotel owners just to get “bang for their buck.” Everyone searches for a good deal and if they see a way that they can save money and get the best they will run it in the ground to the point where they would ruin it for the people who really need to see that improvement in the hotel. On the other hand, hotels posting on twitter and facebook are not a bad idea. It is a good source of information and it will bring awareness to the consumer.

Banks using Twitter?!

Banks using Twitter?!


I guess banks feel they have to keep up with the times. They probably considered Twitter because it is a good networking site and a great place for information. Banks probably think that since people tweet all day every day that it will be good for business to put their company on there as well. I’m not even surprise that they decided to join. Soon schools and churches will be hopping on twitter as well.

What’s the deal with Twitter?

What’s the deal with Twitter?


I have to agree with you. I thought twitter was the most pointless website that was ever made. I felt that who care about what you are eating and who made you mad. After using it for the class I feel differently now. I would never use it personally but as a networking tool it is very convenient. I met a lady on there that was in charge for setting up internships and I probably would have never met her if I didn’t explore twitter.

Tips for writing an effective news release

Decide why you are writing a press release and determine your focus. Make sure the information is newsworthy.

Keep it short and to the point. Usually, press releases are no more than one page. Start with a brief description of the news, then distinguish who announced it, and not the other way around.

Ask yourself, “How are people going to relate to this and will they be able to connect?” Tell the audience that the information is intended for them and why they should continue to read it.

Make sure the first 10 words of your release are effective, as they are the most important. Create a headline and center it in bold type just above the first line of the body of the press release. Headlines typically highlight the most important, significant or shocking fact in the release.

Print the words “FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE” in the top left-hand margin in all caps. Follow this line with relevant contact information: name, title, address, phone number, email address. Create a dateline – the first line of the body of your press release – that includes the city where the release is generated and the date (i.e. LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – January 1, 2000).

Center these marks, ” # # #” or “-30-“, at the bottom of the page to indicate the end of your release.

Avoid excessive use of adjectives and fancy language. Make certain the first paragraph includes all the vital information: the where, when, why, what and who. Deal with the facts.

Make sure you wait until you have something with enough substance to issue a release.

Make it as easy as possible for media representatives to do their jobs.

Print your release on high quality paper using a good laser. You only get one chance to make a solid first impression.
