Adelaide publicity professional Libby Parker (Music SA, Adelaide Festival) is running a PR course for beginners this month at Raj House.
Designed for event planners, artists and small business operators on a budget, DIY PR promises to send participants home with skills and resources to give their product or production a plug.
Libby, a qualified journalist and teacher will show participants how to write a media release, come up with catchy taglines and take professional publicity photos.
“Publicity can seem like a daunting undertaking, but with the right skills, resources and connections, it opens up a whole new world for your business, product, launch or event,” Libby says. “Professional photographer Dave Court will be popping in to show participants how to snap the perfect promo shot, which will be fun and incredibly valuable.”
Every attendee will have an opportunity to write a media release, which will be published on Libby’s website (www.theupsidenews.com). They also receive a complimentary glass of wine on arrival and take-home resources, including a comprehensive media guide.
“I want to send everyone home confident and prepared to promote their passion,” Libby says. “The last DIY PR event was a huge success and I am looking forward to sharing publicity secrets with the next generation of Expressions Media graduates.”
With Libby, you will learn what to do and what not to do in PR, while developing the confidence to promote what you’ve created.
Capacity is limited, so book now to learn how to promote your product and find your hook to catch some media attention.
