What Do PR Firms Do Anyway?

A Day In The Pink Sparkly Offices Of TK PR

Posted on

8:02am - Sit down at my desk and catch up with the latest happenings on GVL Today, Facebook, and Help a Reporter. Read through emails that came in overnight and decide which ones to deal with first.

9:15am - Draft pitch to National media for Holiday Gift Guides. Because nothing quite puts you in the holiday spirit like looking out your window and seeing the neighborhood kids run through the sprinklers in their swimsuits

10:00am - Meet with fashion client to familiarize with their fall line. Wind up spending $200 on clothes. Wonder if accountant will let me expense it as “client relations”

12:20pm - Receive recipe for chef’s signature dish to run in a major food magazine. Spell check and translate that recipe into “human” language and adjust serving size to accommodate a family of 4 rather than 40.

3:45pm - Receive email from client who doesn’t know yet that their story just got cut due to space limitations with a link to another story about one of their top competitors with subject line: contact this writer

4:40pm - Receive email from blogger who has 3,000 readers a month who is passing through town next week and interested in visiting one of the properties we represent if we are willing to host her for free.

4:45pm - Receive email from a journalist “sorry for the urgent matter of this email but we are requesting samples to arrive at our office by 11am tomorrow morning” Urgently call client to get samples packed up and chase FedEx truck down the street for overnight delivery of a 40 pound box.

5:30pm Arrive 15 minutes early for happy hour with journalist. Grab 2 seats at the bar and order drinks so they’re ready when he arrives. Get text that journalist is running about 30 minutes late and will “be there ASAP.”
