If you are a PR Specialist who wants to take things to that next level then there are a couple of things you can do to try and make your life easier. The first thing you need to do is share your prospective list with your other specialists. They can see your notes and they can also see which email templates have worked for them and which ones haven’t. This is also a great way for you get started and BuzzStream is the way to go with this.
If you can’t find an email for whatever reason then this is a great tool for you. It is a plugin for Gmail and it helps you to get any email addresses for your editors, journalists and more based on the guess you have for the recipient. You can guess up to five times and when you find who you are looking for, you will see their full name, their image and their LinkedIn profile as well.
The next thing you can do is try and take your search to Twitter. You can search for the full name of your target and the word “email” and when you do this you can then find out if they have tweeted to others who have asked for it before.
If you want to try and find some contact information for those who are higher up in a company then annual reports are a great way for you to get this done. Try and search Google for reports and scroll down right to the bottom to try and find out if they have their contact information.
So as you can see, it has never been easier for you to get started with your PR, so why don’t you try this for yourself today?
