Today’s journalist is as likely to be an independent food blogger as a major media outlet… a local mom or an international traveler. Reaching the press and breaking through the clutter has become more complicated and confusing than ever.
In this practical, fun workshop you’ll learn:
- How to find the right media people
- How to write the perfect pitch
- How to prevent “post-PR depression” and deal with bad reviews
The session will be interactive and one lucky participant will win a free pitch and a list of 10 media contacts. **Limited to restaurants and food companies; other marketing/PR firms do not qualify.
Who should attend this seminar?
Restaurant owners and managers or marketing, communications, and PR professionals working in-house for a restaurant or restaurant group that is interested in learning more about how to get press coverage in traditional and digital media.
