I’m Conrad Egusa, the Founder of Publicize and a Guest Contributor at TheNextWeb and TechCrunch. Earlier I was a writer at VentureBeat and founded an angel-investor backed startup in Silicon Valley. I'm also a Mentor at The Founder Institute.
I will be doing an Ask Me Anything session right here on the Warrior Forum on Thursday, April 16th on how your company can get media coverage.
I want to share everything I know about PR and the media with you. My hope is that after this AMA, you will feel comfortable contacting publications like The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch and others.
What questions can you ask me? You can ask me anything, but here are some ideas:
What makes for a newsworthy announcement?
What is the biggest mistake you have seen people make when contacting the media?
When should I contact the media?
What is the difference between an "Exclusive" and an "Embargo"
Why is it important to use social proof when contacting the media?
Should I call journalists or email them?
How many times should I email a journalist about an announcement?
What are some of your PR secrets that you use when contacting the media?
I’ll do my best to answer anything you send. I’m looking forward to hanging out on the 14th!
