What Our Customers Say About PR University:
"All the speakers at your recent audio conference, 'Targeting PR to Tech Blogs,' were incredibly knowledgeable and gave me tips and techniques I'm already using in my daily practice. These speakers didn't just speak in general terms-they got very specific and shared relevant anecdotes to illustrate their points. Among many insights I picked up was the tip about creating your own blog as a means of building credibility, so you can highlight specific messages you want to circulate in the blogging community. The conference also showed how to make press releases 'blog friendly'-a technique I wasn't aware of. I'd definitely recommend Bulldog Reporter's PR University audio conferences to my colleagues."
