Beltsville, MD (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Vocus, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based public relations software, today announced its “Insider Secrets to the Perfect Pitch” webinar on Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. ET featuring Batt Humphreys, a CBS News veteran with over 30 years of industry experience. Humphreys is the creator of Inside Media for Entrepreneurs, an online university that teaches entrepreneurs how to approach the media and be heard by news executives. The instructional, hour-long webinar will teach public relations (PR) practitioners how to craft winning pitches, hooking busy reporters in seconds.
In the age of the constant news cycle, a journalist’s job has never been busier. Having only a limited time to sort through pitches, a good pitch is the difference between a story idea getting deleted or published. Humphreys will teach attendees how to earn reporters’ trust, craft standout pitches by adopting a journalist’s perspective, avoid common misconceptions that instantly discredit pitches, and earn media coverage by learning when and what to pitch.
