  • In order to create the most worthwhile relationships, you first need to know who your target audience is and who will be able to reach them the most affectively
  • Reach out to the media that is valuable to your organization. Even if you do not have a pitch for them, introduce yourself and your organization, and let them know that you would be the main point of reference if they ever needed anything. Be available to them when they need you, and hopefully they will be available when you need them.
