    • 103. #brightonseo @staceycav Start on day 1
    • 104. #brightonseo @staceycav With a contacts audit.
    • 105. #brightonseo @staceycav You’ll need an evolving list of journalists/bloggers/ot her relevant contacts
    • 106. #brightonseo @staceycav You’ll need excellent monitoring tools.

    • 127. #brightonseo @staceycav Response rates depend on project, audience and approach, of course
    • 128. #brightonseo @staceycav But allow me to share some (very unscientific) analysis…
    • 129. #brightonseo @staceycav NOTE: Small sample sizes – 100 emails, 40 phone calls, 20 letters sent out and this relates to just one event centric project.
