Jane: Morning all! I help businesses and charities promote themselves and reach more clients through public relations.
This involves looking at what they say and how they say it to their ‘publics’ making sure they reach the right people at the right time, in the right way.
Jackie: interesting! how do u do that?
Jane: It’s not just about journalists, it’s blogs, web and social media too. It’s about great content to get them noticed!
