CALM not BUSY
Modern Media Relations for Nonprofits:
Creating an Effective PR Strategy for Today’s World
This book can serve as your guide for building that strategy. While there are plenty of other books that offer instruction on media relations, this one is written by two trained journalist and nonprofit leaders. It offers practical strategies to navigate today’s media landscape from citizen journalism to fake news.
Peter Panepento and Antionette Kerr have worked both as reporters and as media relations professionals and they’ve developed a G.R.E.A.T. approach to nonprofit media relations — Goal-oriented, Responsive, Empowered, Appealing and Targeted.
Whether you’re looking to get your next event covered by the local TV station or are looking to change minds in national outlets like the Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times, the G.R.E.A.T. approach offers you the roadmap to success.
- Develop a media relations strategy that meets your nonprofit’s goals… and its budget.
- Build relationships with reporters and editors that will lead to positive placement.
- Prepare for and manage media crises.
- Learn how to position your leaders as thought leaders.
And much more!
