Twice a month on Tuesdays (sings going up on a Tuesday), I host #PRGirlMagic, a Twitter Chat for business owners and PR newbies who want to learn about Public Relations. The first chat was all about building relationships, which is the "R" in Public Relations. Some amazing PR girls shared the tea on how to build relationships. I always say a publicist is nothing without her little black book of contacts. If you missed the chat, check out the recap below.Read More
Twitter is one of the oldest social media platforms, but with 310 million active users per month it's here to stay! I was very slow to jump back on the Twitter bandwagon, but if you are a PR girl you should be using twitter for several reasons:
Twitter chats are a great way to connect with influencers, business owners, and other PR girls. Here are a few chats that are on my radar:

Connecting with Media + PR Girls
A majority of journalists and bloggers are on Twitter sharing their stories, weighting in on the latest news, and engaging. Why not join in on the conversation with them. Don't forgot about your PR girls that are on the platform as well. Don't be afraid to say hi, re-tweet their posts, and reply to their comments.
Hey PR Gang,
As most of you may know, I'm a huge social media junkie! I especially love when brands get it right and use social media as a way to engage with their audience. My favorite platform right now is Snap Chat because it's an unfiltered glimpse into a person's life.
I'm not going to lie, there was a bit of a learning curve when I started using the platform, but now it's so easy to use, I post with little effort. If you are a communications professional, you need to be on here. As a publicist, relationships are the foundation of success in the industry, so using Snap chat is another great tool to connect with you audience.Read More
As a communications professional or any one building a brand, it's essential to know how to network with others. Social media has been a great tool to connect with a lot of people at a faster rate than in person.
Slack is my new favorite application for networking. I may be late to the Slack party, but now that I know about it, I'm putting all my friends on.
I was first introduced to Slack in a facebook group months ago. I even made my own Slack Group (Email Me if you want in) , but disregarded it. Then about a month ago I stumbled across a I Don't Do Club's blog post about their slack group for young professionals. I've been hooked every since, and have joined another group in slack for media professionals called Minorities in Media.Read More
