Portland Grassroots Media Camp begins August 24
Okay. I know all of you folks know how to blog. Some of you use Twitter. Some of you podcast and post videos.
I know that you get the whole “grassroots media” thing.
But what about interacting with the mainstream media? I mean, besides that KATU thing. What about coverage that reaches the non-technically savvy? You know the 99.9% of the population that could use the tool you’re building if they only knew about it?
Enter Portland Grassroots Media Camp. The camp is a free gathering, held August 24-August 26, in a variety of venues around town. And while it focuses on a number of things that you, Mr. or Mrs. Technophile, completely understand, it also offers some sessions on things that you may not understand, specifically:
- Writing a press release
- Setting up a press conference
So, if you’re a working by yourself or with a small startup, and building the next big thing sans massive marketing dollars and wily PR agencies, I thought this might be valuable for you.
As our old friend Tom Peterson used to say, “Free is a very good price.”
