Public Relations often feels unattainable because we usually see it working for giant brands with an agency creating the most incredible spins on news. The secret to actually getting media and the right kind of explosive attention is all about the relationships and followup.

Anyone can utilize PR for their business so I brought Courtney Love Gavin, a public relations strategist to help break down some of the myths that people have about PR and how to use it to grow their business.

Courtney actually started her own public relations firm after using PR to grow her creative goods business. She was profitable within 30 days of launching by using the power of PR to get visible and left the corporate PR world for good.

She discusses how to approach PR for your business and the importance of building organic relationships to help get your message out there.

Courtney shares how to pitch yourself and why you need to filter your pitches depending on who you’re speaking to. We talk about how less is more in the world of PR, why you should have PR for your business and how to use PR in times of crisis.
