Startup Attention & PR 101" is a deeper look at how to better work with the press. This is not a course about traditional PR. Instead, this is a deeper dive into what makes a journalist tick, how you can get attention with these public relations skills and take advantage of that for your company or cause.
This course covers four broad themes:
● How Journalists Think
● How to Launch a Product
● How to Keep Users Interested
● How to Deal With a Press Crisis
This course won't make you a journalist's best friend, but I hope it will give you more clarity to how journalists make decisions and how that affects you and your company. Learning these skills will help you make great product launches.
