Last month, Martin Davison Public Relations joined forces with the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus to host PR101, a free seminar for startups in LEARN at the Innovation Center.
PR101 was an overview of DIY media exposure for startups, companies that may not be able to afford a PR firm or a practitioner in-house. We briefed the attendees on area media outlets, pitching, planning press conferences, and using social media to reinforce PR. Most importantly, we addressed where PR begins:
What is newsworthy? For startups, here’s where to start:
With a number of clients within WNY’s startup ecosystem, we know the importance of being a resource for the region’s growing number of startups. Our team has also supported the startup community by being a DIG mechanic/mentor and assisting with Founder’s Institute, the Steve Case’s 2015 Rise of the Rest competition in Buffalo, Startup Grind Buffalo and Startup Weekend Buffalo.
