Forbes, Mashable, VentureBeat, TheNextWeb, Huffington Post, BusinessWeek, and more, you’ve heard of their editorial brands, but how often do you get to hear directly from these pros?
Enter Startup PR Summit 2010, a one day event where you get to meet, greet, and tweet about (not to mention learn from) the cream of the media crop, so to speak. If you’re one of many ventures these days trying to get by on a shoestring budget, this is a must do event at a can’t miss it price.
These veteran communicators will spend a day divulging tips to jumpstart your PR programs. Getting this impressive crew under one roof was the work of Marissa Louie, an entrepreneur and experienced writer herself.. Her reason? “Throughout my career as a startup entrepreneur, I’ve learned how difficult it is to draw media attention to a small startup, even if you are building the next big thing. Startup PR Summit 2010 is your chance to learn PR directly from the top brass in media – and avoid spending up to $12k per month on a PR firm with limited results.”
Regardless of what PR mode you’re in — stealth, startup or even been around the PR block a bit ~ this is an opportunity to gain insights from the very sources you’re looking to influence. You’ll hear: from proven writers who will share their experiences from being at the receiving end of the PR pitch, allowing them to openly share what speaks to them; what it takes to motivate them to write about your company, industry, idea or executive team; everything from how and when to pitch the press, to mistakes to avoid when telling your story. Even the nuances and techniques for dealing with bloggers versus journalists in the press.
With a $40 admission fee, it looks like you’ll get more than your money’s worth.
Just 7 days, the event on Oct. 16, at Atelier BNP Paribas, 2415 3rd Street, Suite 231, San Francisco, CA 94107.
