Women TIES sponsors a Public Relations Event: “Preparing For Your Fall PR Campaign”

“Publicity begets Publicity” is one of the truest statements in public relations today. As soon as a woman entrepreneur and her company obtain publicity, the more publicity they continue to receive. Publicity is an inexpensive, creative way to gain awareness for a business and its owner. There are three essential components to get the ball rolling: a professional headshot, a template for a press release, and a list of valuable PR opportunities.

This unique opportunity will provide women entrepreneurs with a professional headshot session with Laure Lillie Photographie in her Skaneateles photo studio, a fifteen-minute PR consulting session and materials handout with Tracy Higginbotham, a hot beverage, snack and $10 book coupon from Creekside Books & Coffee. To visit the Women TIES website and learn more information about this event, click www.womenties.com/events  for reservations
