I visited with PR wiz Paul Hartunian yesterday and it reminded me that
media exposure or PR is not free media, it is earned. Nothing’s free, but
few things give you the low cost, high payoff return like PR.

Paul has a great system that teaches anyone how to generate local or

Some quick bites…

Look for stories in how you do things that are diffenent

Don’t go for one shot deals – there is always a story in a story

So go out there and earn your PR.
