Your secret weapon for publicity
It seems like every day another magazine folds or moves to digital-only. Media lists become out of date as soon as you purchase them; editors are being let go and publications are relying on freelance writers (whose email addresses can be extra hard to find).
This current kerfuffle is why you need to you head on over and subscribe to a powerful little service called Media Leads. With Media Leads, you’re responding to editor requests, rather than pitching into the black hole of a busy inbox. And it’s just for product-based businesses. Hallelujah.

How to help your PR Person Land more coverage
The success you achieve when you retain a publicist can often have a lot to do with assets and support provided by the brand itself. Often brands sign on with a PR agency and magically expect to see their product appear in next month’s issues of their favorite magazine.
Building a brand takes guts.
I started my career in public relations because I was excited by the idea of using my talents to help creative artists, designers and creators gain recognition and success. Over the last decade, I have worked with companies of all sizes – from a top fast fashion retailer to a small athleisure startup – to connect with their people through PR, social media, and brand storytelling.
Concurrently, I have built PR Couture into what it is today, and I know firsthand how challenging it is to be the decision-maker and to navigate an increasingly complex, fragmented media landscape.
My hope is that with PR Couture, our consulting, agency partners and robust content library will fuel you to more confidently bring your brand to life, and to experience the joy that comes from seeing something you made, get the visibility and traction it deserves. Theres’ nothing like it.
