    1. Hi Laura,

      One thing should always hold true in the world of PR — the client comes first. If you can only work with a firm under certain terms, explain this to the PR Firm you are negotiating with. If your terms are a deal breaker for them, don’t settle. Continue your search for a PR Firm that will work around your needs.

    1. Hi Blair,

      Former Executive Producer with NBC and Senior Producer with CBS, Mark Macias, wrote a blog on this topic:

      He says a journalist’s deadline will vary by beat and city but generally speaking, every TV reporter that files a daily story is under deadline three hours before the newscast. Many newspaper reporters with a daily beat must file their stories between 5pm and 7pm, so you should avoid calling them after 3pm.

    1. Hi Michelle,

      It takes a different kind of editorial thinking to get a feature placed in Forbes, according to Mark Macias – media strategist and owner of MACIAS PR. The Forbes editorial is one of many editorials and stories MACIAS PR secured for their clients in finance, technology and accounting.

      Macias says a story in this publication requires a strong, enterprise angle. It can’t be old news. It must be fresh and cutting edge. Macias also says publicist needs to know how to position the story and client so it doesn’t sound like a commercial. Smart and experienced reporters can read right through a PR pitch that is pushing advertisements. He says your idea must reveal insight and advice that only a thought-leader would understand.
