Share your BEST, FREE tools and ideas for PR
Here are my suggestions for DIY free PR tools:
PitchEngine (http://www.pitchengine.com/) makes it easy for you to incorporate PR assets like video, audio and images directly into your press release and share it with your media contacts via email and cut-and-paste links or post it directly to Twitter, FriendFeed, Facebook. You can create an account for free. Your Press releases will be hosted for free for 30 days and you can purchase a subscription to create a permanent media newsroom.
EzineArticles (http://www.ezinearticles.com/) allows you to post articles and link back to your website or organization for free. Not only is this good organically for your website, but it also publishes your content on the EzineArticles website, which is an authoritative article powerhouse.
Nj, thank your for this valuable asset to me, I have had the chance to check out Pitchengine, and would recommend it to anyone.
What about community activists (such as environmentalists) famous enough to be mentioned on Wikipedia but not rich enough to afford a good PR firm?
They would use those IPs to build socks with good reputations by doing mostly harmless edits like adding commas, correcting misspellings and adding citations any monkey can get from Google Books.
Those socks would get promoted to adminship and would then have the power to do something about slander aimed at the PR firm’s clients.
