Adventures In Freelancing Part #2: PR Peeps!
If you don’t know what this is all about, you need to follow this back to youtube.com and watch the series. I am going to run this series THIS week.
It’s too good NOT to see. I have already featured Part 1.
Part 2 is really so much about what freelance and editors have to deal with sometimes when it comes to PR people. You ask for one thing and they don’t give you what you need in the proper time frame– but they might bombard you with stuff you don’t want. (Avalanches of information and email). Caveat– this isn’t ALL PR people, just a strange viral strain of them that don’t get that deadlines actually mean images, story information and maybe even samples by a certain date.
I too have been a victim of this and I found this one so realistic that I could hardly stop laughing.
If you don’t know Lauren Lipton (writer, author, fashionista and genuine nice person), you can follow her on facebook.com/laurenlipton OR you can search through this blog for about 3 podcasts and a couple reviews on her book.
Lauren and I go back a ways.. and I find her sense of humor to be incredibly astute and witty.
This is part and parcel of the freelance life. I just wish I had thought of this first!
