Great #mediamashup program by @FPRAOrlando and @PRSAOrlando today. Love the new format. Now off to cheer on #USA #1N1T #USAvsGER
Social media cash is a big deal for bloggers; RT and repost the blog about your biz, esp if they aren't being paid #MediaMashup @Bess_Auer
Stats from @Bess_Auer show that majority of bloggers are male; stereotypical mommy blogger persona is blown :) #MediaMashup
RT @captivated3: "I like it when people know my publication and what I generally write about." - @PaulBrinkmann #MediaMashup @FPRAOrlando @PRSAOrlando
Don't send attachments, recommends a dropbox folder with all multimedia assets ready for download #MediaMashup
RT @jongabriel: .@PaulBrinkmann press release still ok for me. I like to have the data/facts in front of me - send me an email. #mediaMashup
Press releases don't work too well with bloggers; develop a relationship instead via @Bess_Auer #mediamashup
Say hello to @PaulBrinkmann when you see him around town at other industry events, picking up coverage for @orlandosentinel #mediamashup
Excited to hear from @mattbroffman with Bungalower - covers 5 mile radius around downtown Orlando and neighboring communities #mediamashup
Great resource for blogger outreach is @Bess_Auer #mediamashup
Media landscape summed up as less people doing more work #MediaMashup
Use your existing relationships to find best person to pitch at an outlet; don't have a connection? Use the assignment desk #MediaMashup
RT @FPRAOrlando: .@clickorlando has a #ThrowbackThursday section on their website and shares on social media. Send them your #TBT pics. #MediaMashup
Today the hot topics in local broadcast news are the shark in Brevard County & the #worldcup via CFN13; got a good tie-in? ;) #MediaMashup
RT @FPRAOrlando: Tim with @CFNews13Desk says: We'll sacrifice being FIRST to being RIGHT. #accuracymatters #MediaMashup
RT @jongabriel: Just say no to "spray and pray." #MediaMashup
Don't call broadcast a week or even a day before event; they don't know until day of or even up to the hour; email is best #MediaMashup
True from the broadcast panel too MT @FPRAOrlando: No large attachments, there are so many restrictions. Don’t include in pitch #MediaMashup
RT @FPRAOrlando: .@CFNews13Desk likes to shoot their own video. Only in rare circumstances will they use your b-roll. #MediaMashup
Multimedia news releases are good @orlandosentinel include video of how product works; keep in mind video may not run in story #MediaMashup
RT @FPRAOrlando: Not a fan of PR folks sitting in on interviews, trying to manage it. @orlandosentinel #MediaMashup
Make video/photos available when you pitch (don't attach lg files) MT @FPRAOrlando: Readers demand more video. @orlandosentinel #MediaMashup
Great tip & true of all journalists MT @FPRAOrlando: Best way to pitch is to read @osDarrylEOwens to learn what he writes about #Mediamashup
RT @FPRAOrlando: .@CFNews13Desk wants stories about other family-friendly economical activities, outside of theme parks. #whyorlando #MediaMashup
