PR Lingo 101: Phrases Every Pro Should Know

B-roll. Byline. Ed Cals. Embargo. Owned media. Press release. UMV.   If you’re a PR professional or work with media, you probably use some or all of these terms on a regular basis.

I’ve learned how to be proactive, how to think like a journalist, how to navigate a PR crisis and several other areas of expertise that you can’t really learn in a classroom setting.   While there are several things that can be taught, other life skills that come naturally by trade. ...

Interview Prep Sheets: Turn a good interview into a great one

While Dittoe PR offers an array of different services for clients, our bread and butter is media relations. We’re constantly working with reporters to secure media opportunities for our clients. Since we believe no two clients are alike, that also means every client interview is as important as the next.

What is Public Relations? [Part 1]

When I first joined Dittoe Public Relations as a bright-eyed intern, I thought I signed up to work with reporters and schedule interviews. After getting my feet wet, I quickly learned that the world of public relations is much more than just media relations.   Yes, in its simplest form, the core of PR is media relations. But before you become dubbed a #PRpro, there are several different areas of expertise to master. This blog post is part one of a two-part series that will take a look at four different key areas of public relations. Part two will be shared ...
