Tonya W.

Journalist With PR strategy expertise


Plano, United States


NEWS FLASH: If you want guaranteed placement on a national news blog, let's talk. Enjoy the benefits of a PR strategist using her journalism skills to get media placements. Now, back to regular programming. Many small business owners have no clue that an appearance on local or national television or in a newspaper can boost business. It works! For three years, I have made business owners believers. As a former newspaper journalist, I can read the minds of media gatekeepers. I know what they think because I used to be one. I have helped past clients boost sales and increase visibility. All ... moreI ask is that you allow me to do what you hired me to do -- and that is promote you and your business. If I went to the dealership to have the oil changed in my vehicle, I would never go into a garage and tell the mechanic how to change the oil in my vehicle. That is what I hired him for. If you don't believe what I say, read the comments left by my past clients here on oDesk. I have more references if you need them. My latest success: I landed an interview with a local newspaper editor for a client within 24 hours of sending the press release about an upcoming women's conference. Need I say more? less
