Startups are getting a major discount on PR today. MakePR, the 8 lesson, online DIY PR course is on sale for $398.00.
PR for startups has never been so well priced.
To date, startups have waged a war of attrition on their own resources when trying to generate earned media coverage. It comes down to limited options and costs. Solo PR pros typically charge at least $2000/month. Agencies, even of the boutique variety, usually require $3500/month to get out of bed.
"Startup PR has been a serious ripoff, to date," said MakePR's founder Jackson Wightman.
Startup founders or employees who register for MakePR get lifetime access to video, audio and text based tutorials. Upon registration, they also receive a workbook with a range of customizable templates. Each week students take part in live support sessions with seasoned PR veterans.
"Despite the claims of some nefarious elements in the PR world, DIY PR is realistic for startups," said Wightman, "Our plan is simple: give founders and startup employees all the secrets they need to score media coverage without charging them a king's ransom."
MakePR's online, DIY PR program features journalists from The Globe and Mail, former producers at CNN and ABC's Nightline, as well as PR agency owners, bestselling authors and world renowned experts on Public Relations. Topics include, among others, writing for PR, pitching stories to media, press events, measuring PR and much more.
"We stripped away all theoretical gobbledygook in this course. MakePR is a practical program centered around overcoming one central problem: how to generate favourable media coverage for a startup," said Wightman.
