    HARO is GREAT! Peter’s emails have hleepd me publicise myself and my business motivational book, Boss of Me!, in business blogs and recently, Think Big, an Australian magazine, has expressed interest in doing a book review after I contacted them.It’s the best way to get information on the media to brand and promote your company! Highly recommended.

    I’ve had great exposure through HARO and strongly recommend using it. It only takes a few minutes to browse through the requests to find suitable fits. The best way to get results from my experience is to send sound bites of specific short quotes that can be used by the journalist who may use them without calling or some will request a phone or email interview. Be sure to include your full name, title and contact information including web site in that response and DO follow Peter’s rules.

    You can see some of the articles I’ve been quoted in here although not all are from HARO.

        The tip I took to heart from this article was “Make it easy to talk about you” – it made me realize I need to revamp my about page, which has barely anything on it…maybe a trade is in order with a local photographer for good head shots?Ruth
