PR in a week. Ann fiona Martin

Using her 10+ years of insider experience as a journalist, let Ann Fiona Martin show you, in just a week, how to ‘do’ PR for your small business. You’re welcome.

Why we love this course

Getting PR for your small business can seem pretty daunting. It might even seem slightly out of reach. It certainly seems like it’d be time consuming, right? Wrong. Super PR profesh, Ann Fiona Martin, has created this brilliant course to help you start doing the PR thing in just a week. Hell, it’s not even an actual full week for people who run their own business, it’s only 5 days. That’s basically half your working week in terms of hours, right?!

Ann is a former journalist so, as well as being super practical and self-paced, this course spills the beans on what journalists are really looking for and tells you how you can become a preferred source in your area of expertise. 

You’ll learn how to create a PR strategy that you can easily follow and manage in your own time. Plus you’ll discover how to use press coverage to drive traffic and sales leads to your business. 

By the end of these lessons you will have the confidence to approach journalists with a clear pitch and be able to communicate the unique selling points of your business. Sounds good to us.
