Today we are talking with Lisa Buyer and how she uses public relations and social media to get more PR. Lisa is a fellow podcaster, has a PR agency, and is also an author. You can get a free digital version of her book, PR Secrets, which is a great PR manual packed with content. Listen in as you’ll hear how Lisa discusses how to use social media platforms to get press, and how to use your content to get in front of the right media people and groups. You’ll hear all about Facebook groups, LinkedIn, Twitter, even Tik Tok and how to leverage them to get more media representation for your brand.
We chat about some of the things she talks about in her book. She covers a host of topics such as newsjacking, chatbots, futurists, SEO, visual reporting, podcasting, and what’s new in putting together a press release. This is similar to the way we are approaching our business, in outreach with other publications that can help spread our message, but also as helping them in turn. There’s a lot of content that we all create without thinking about, where someone will share that, feature a quote or perhaps a podcast you’ve been on. These are all opportunities for you to build up this library and Lisa will explore how to take advantage of that in a clever way. After you’ve listened be sure to check out our shows with Molly Mahoney and Dennis Yu for even more tips on how to get the most out of your social media strategy.
