How to: PR with Nathalie Atkinson

201010191644 How to: PR with Nathalie AtkinsonThis piece byNathalie Atkinson on proper PR behavior has been widely quoted. Working for a widely read consumer publication — The National Post of Toronto — Atkinson definitely gets more annoying followup than the average comics journo, but her suggestions stand — basically, don’t be a jerk.

And don’t send images in CMYK or pdf format if you want them posted!

And don’t embed giant 50mb files in your file. A link will do just fine.

Also make sure where your link GOES. I just got a nice note today that I immediately clicked on, only to find the landing page included a broken image. OOPS.

Anyway, worth reading. Bobbi Flekman would approve.

  1. Joe Lawler says:

    I can’t tell you how many unsolicited 10-12 MB releases I get, which send me scrambling to delete things to unfreeze my account.

    Usually my first target is the large email that triggered it.

  2. Nitpicking, I know, but the National Post is a national newspaper, not a “consumer publication.”
