July #PRStudChat Special Announcement

It that’s time again … #PRStudchat is almost here, and we have a special announcement regarding the July 14th session, which takes place at 8:30 p.m. Because our Twitter chat is a learning experience for students, professionals and educators, we will be focusing on how the PR community can successfully connect with the new era bloggers and how to build stronger relationships with these influencers.  It’s my pleasure to announce our special guest on the 14th is Joe Ciarallo (@joeCiarallo), editor of PRNewser.

Recently, Joe participated on the PRSA T3PR New Era of Blogging panel in June and Valerie had the pleasure of moderating Joe’s roundtable discussion at the Bulldog Reporters Media Relations Summit this past Monday in NYC.  After seeing Joe in action and being fans/avid readers of PRNewser, we both felt he would be the perfect guest for #PRStudChat.  Joe will be answering questions related to blogger relations and also providing insight on how media is changing and affecting the PR industry.

A few of the questions during the session will include:

Q1:  How should PR pros shift their thinking to accommodate changes in the media?

Q2:  What is the difference between media relations & blogger relations?

Q3: What do new influencers expect from PR professionals?

Q4:  How do PR pros get your attention (good/bad examples)?

Q5:  Where do you go to verify/confirm tips and how can a PR pro help?

Q6: What will tomorrow’s media look like & what does that mean for PR?

We hope that you will join us on July 14th to chat with Joe Ciarallo and to share insight on your experience with bloggers and new media.  As always, Valerie and I welcome your comments and encourage you to post any questions you have for Joe on our LinkedIn discussion group, prior to the 14th.

If you want the PR scoop, then join us for the #PRStudChat session with Joe Ciarallo.  We’ll “see” you then.
