PRStudChat Kicks off the New Year with Startup PR


PRStudChatFor students and recent grads with an entrepreneurial spirit, startups provide an ideal training ground to expand your skills, witness the ins and outs of growing a business from the ground up, and gain a wide-range of valuable, hands-on experiences.

But, startup PR is very different than managing PR for a more traditional, established company. And, it’s this difference – plus the nuances, pros and cons – that we’re going to discuss during January’s #prstudchat. Join us and guest moderator, Heather Whaling, on January 21 at 8:30pm ET. Heather is president of Geben Communication, which was named one of Agency Post’s top PR agencies for startups.

During #prstudchat, we’ll cover a range of questions, including:

  • How does PR for startups/emerging brands differ from PR for established companies?
  • Pros/cons for startups outsourcing PR  vs hiring an internal staffer?
  • What are some new examples of startups with smart PR  strategies?
  • If you’ve never worked with startups, how can you get your foot in the door?
  • … plus more!

Have other questions about startup PR? Tweet them to Heather (@prTini) in advance. We hope to see you on Twitter on January 21 at 8:30pm ET.

This was an important question and one that should be explored beyond one student or one blog post. Why not build a community to help students across the country, and even the globe, learn from the experience and perspective of industry professionals… A community where everyone can learn and grow together. Read more.
