About this class

Event Title:
Pressing News – A Panel on Best Practices on Collaborating With Media

What's Happening?:
The Media landscape is constantly changing – which makes it hard for the rest of us to keep up! We all want to play well with each other, but it can sometimes be challenging when we don’t fully understand the rules of the game (or the other players on the board).

For this panel event, Six Degrees Society is excited to bring PR Pros and Editorial Experts together to bridge the information gap and empower better collaboration between the two groups.

Whether you’re a PR/Marketing specialist, journalist, content creator, business owner who does it all, or anyone in-between, we invite you to join us and gain key insights into the editorial process and how to work it on both sides.

Our experts will dish on:

–– What’s Press Worthy and What’s Not
–– What’s the News Cycle and How Does it Work?
–– How to Tell Compelling Stories that Press Want to Cover
–– Creating Usable Content for Editorial
–– How to NOT Piss off Editors and Producers
–– How Social and Branded Content is Evolving the Media Landscape

Curated Matches:
