Topic of the Week: Week 13

Here are some reasons I believe PR people can drive Journalist NUTS! 

1) Sending them memo’s that are to long.

2) Sending out spam.

3) Not having a subject in the headline of an email.

4) Sending too many e-mails ….I HATE when I get e-mails from one particular person ALL the time. I can imagine this occurrs often for journalist.

5)A press release more than two sides long.

6)Making mistakes in news releases that are not factual

7)Not meeting deadlines

8)Calling a journalist to ask why a press release was not published

9)Excess hype words used in news releases (ex. Extravigant!)

10)Poorly written material and not knowing how to format correctly.

    I agree with everything you said, I think one of the biggest things is people’s work is not ready and that would drive me crazy if people came to me day after day with unpolished work.
