Posted by JournoLink in Business Tips on 25 July 2017 at 16:15


When kicking off your small business PR it is important to make yourself visible online, especially on social media. Twitter is a great platform to get your voice heard, share your views and connect with journalists.


You need to follow and engage with relevant journalists by commenting and retweeting their content. One of the easiest ways to do this is to create Twitter lists with small business journalists, as well as journalists within your industry sector. This way you will be able to keep up-to-date with their work, find out more about them and even see editorial requests.
