Stacey Hood, the unofficial Director of Marketing for the Stewart Perry Company visited our class Friday to add more to our notes of knowledge from past speakers. The work that he does focuses on keeping the Stewart Perry Company Green as they do construction in the birmingham area. Here are a few things Mr. Hood shared with our class…
– Make an impression on your audience in whatever ay you can. You have to get noticed if you want people to take interest in your product. That is the PR lifestyle.
2) Utilize social networks.
– Get on Twitter and Facebook. It is the easiest place to connect with people that are at the top of their game in the PR world. Not just connect with but learn from the things they are doing and the habits they have.
3) Use you skills.
– Just because you think you are a good writer doesn’t mean you can stop writing until someone needs you. Practice, practice, practice… and then practice some more.
4) Keep it fresh.
– Change things on your site often. Keep it new and never boring. Give your consumers new things to explore when they visit the site and make it fun.
A final piece of advice would be to keep an open mind and think BIG. Go the extra mile and be great at what you do.
