Now, this clearly shows the value of the role of a publicist. Most publicists have a “gift.”

And to be good you have to know the art and science of public relations.

Most people think they want to hire a publicist or a PR firm – but do not have a clue as to how much money they have to spend to get these kind of hits. Or how long it takes. 

Truth is…it takes a lot of money and a lot of time. Tons.

So, what’s the next best thing?  Do-It-Yourself. 

But, you have to know what you’re doing.  The media can smell an amateur a mile away.

So you have to learn how to be a PRO from a PR Pro, a seasoned publicist.
