Mandy Fernandez presents workshop on PR do’s and don’ts
Pensacola, Fla. – August 3, 2016 – Marketing specialist Mandy Fernandez taught a workshop at the Greater Pensacola Chamber on August 3 called “Put Your Business in the Media.” She developed a one-hour class to help small businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals generate stories for circulation in news outlets.
“I have helped numerous organizations, small business owners and people create publicity that was picked up in the media. For the past three years, I’ve written success stories on entrepreneurs, helping them share their unique stories. I took my best practices learned, developed it into a PowerPoint presentation and handouts, then delivered the tips to our community,” said Mandy Fernandez. Topics covered in her workshop were press release writing, public relation do’s and don’ts, media kit creation, and success story samples of businesses Fernandez helped.
One attendee followed Fernandez’ suggestions and created his own press release and pitch to local media. His story was published in the local newspaper just five days after the workshop. He wrote to Fernandez to thank her for the assistance.
Fernandez said, “I love helping people put their stories out there. I enjoy writing them for others and helping them pitch their features to various sources. Seeing a business or person grow and achieve success is such a reward.” If you’d like Fernandez to deliver this workshop to your group or organization, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
