PR, PR, PR and some PRrrrr!

Doing Pre – Research for Press Releases, game Previews and Public Relations. Lord Byron (the cat) is PrrrPrrrPrrring on my knees keeping me warm and occasionally typing random letters at my Excel file.  Speaking of which, is a MUST – HAVE accessory in every research. Up to now (I consider myself being still in the Pre-research phase) I have a sum of 1,020 entries of people to contact before getting public. I guess I have to clean up my list a bit before doing any further research. A word of advice: Keep your Excel list well organized from the very beginning. Use multiple sheets in different colors in order to navigate easily between your entries – having Twitter accounts mixed up with Facebook groups, personal mails and cool blogs is not very wise, unless your list is no longer than 15 rows (which shouldn’t be)!

I Just found out an entry of a blogger that is inactive since 2014, poor guy I hope he is not dead and gone but anyway, 1,019 entries have to be cleaned up now.

I will come back soon with some valid, up – to – date results of people to contact before getting public!
