P.S….Friday November 23

Is it Friday already?! Apparently so – and that means it’s time for week two of our P.S… feature where we pick out tips, tricks and things that generally help make life in PR that little bit easier (except wine).

My quick video talks about a service called JournoRequests which started life as a hashtag on Twitter.

If you do a quick search of the hashtag you can see some of the weird and wonderful things that are being written about that journalists may need a helping hand with – anything from finding a white witch to feature in a national mag through to needing an expert financier to talk about the finer points of, erm, finance-y stuff.

There is now, helpfully, a website on which you can sign up to daily alerts delivered to your inbox.

The requests are collated into sectors – such as property, education and entertainment. And hopefully a quick scan will reveal if there is anything you can jump on behalf of your client.

Anyhow I’ll stop wittering on…you can (hopefully) learn more in the video below.

Good luck! And do let us know if you have any success with it in the comments below.
