Marketing is super important for your operation, but few owners or leaders think about the power of restaurant PR.

Maybe that’s because many operators think public relations is just not affordable, but my guest this week dispels that myth with a powerful restaurant PR strategy.

In this episode of the Restaurant Rockstars Podcast, I’m speaking with Mickie Kennedy of eReleases.  Mickie is a PR expert, press release ninja and media relations networker with an effective crash course in using restaurant PR to get your place on the map.

Watch or listen as Mickie dishes up:

  • How to get media attention and restaurant PR for your company
  • A crash course in writing effective press releases.
  • The definition of your “Unique Selling Proposition (USP)” and how to get the most out it.
  • If it’s smart to ask your team-members or best customers for their input on your PR strategy
  • Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) or not when writing your release
  • The power of humor or in attracting the local media to cover your business.

And of course, the cost-effectiveness of working with Mickie and eReleases if you want to get the biggest bang for your PR buck!
