Summary transcript for 4 April 2013 #AWCchat: Blogger and online media outreach

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 50th #AWCChat on Twitter (did you see that? 50th!) about better blogger and online media outreach, especially for PR folks but as usual, anyone was welcome to participate.

Several issues were discussed, including:

1)  Are your communications goals for online media coverage different than your goals for print, TV, radio, etc.?

2)  Let’s say your market niche is outdoor recreation. How would you find bloggers/online media who cover that niche?

3)  So, you have something to pitch to someone in online media. Is it different than pitching a print reporter?

Lots of great resource links shared in this chat, too!

Summary transcript for 1 March 2012 #AWCchat: getting sponsorships

Thanks to everyone who participated in our thirteenth #AWCChat on Twitter, on the topic of getting sponsorships.

Four questions were up for discussion:

1)   What are some key aspects of a persuasive initial pitch to prospective sponsors for an event?

2)   Real-world example: if AWC Headquarters had a webinar sponsor, we could make all AWC webinars free to members. How would a sponsor package for a webinar series be different than one for an event?

3)   Let’s talk about getting personal sponsorship (to attend a conference, for example.) Any differences from event sponsorship?

4)   What are some unique sponsor arrangements that sound appealing to you?

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 1 March chat on how to succeed in getting sponsorships.

We won’t have a chat on March 8, during the SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) tech conference, so the next #awcchat is scheduled for 15 March 2012, on the topic of creating an editorial calendar for online content like blogs and Facebook.
