PR NewsChannel logoOn Thursday, June 21, the Tampa Bay PRSA will host a ‘Professional Growth, Tactics, and New Media’ convention in downtown St. Petersburg. Glenn Selig, founder of the press release newswire PR NewsChannel, will be hosting a pre-convention workshop on ‘How to Use Social Media and SEO so Your Press Release Gets the Job Done.’

Selig’s workshop will consist of: learning how to write a press release for social media, how to ‘Twitterfy’ your press release, how to find keywords and the importance of good headlines.

“Press releases are not dead, in fact the press release is very much alive, thriving and succeeding for many companies,” says Selig, who conducts the workshop at conferences, Fortune 100 and companies of all sizes.  “Unfortunately press releases are often abused and underutilized. It’s a shame and a very common mistake that can easily be corrected.”
