Effective Ways to Respond to Bad PR Pitches

I can hear the wind blowing outside and it sounds like it’s really cold. So I’m pulling together this blog post in bed.

I don’t want to get up!

In some places in the country, wind like this is called a tornado or a hurricane. In Chicago? It’s just par for the course. It is, after all, the Windy City.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t have Facebook question of the week (clap, clap, clap)!

This week’s question comes from Tinu Abayomi-Paul. She asks:

In light of recent examples of bad pitches and the potential havoc created by how a publisher/author/blogger might respond, what is the most effective way to respond to a bad PR pitch?

I answer her question in the video below (or click here and it will magically appear), but I’m curious if you agree or not.

And don’t forget! If you have a question for us, head over to our Facebook wall and ask it there. I’ll answer it in a coming week.

I guess I’ll get out of bed now…Pete the Tapeworm is really hungry.
