Looking for connection  - 
 
Good afternoon all:

I have a colleague who's looking for contacts at Science Magazine and Nature magazine.  If anyone here has any contacts at either publication, and are willing to share, please contact me.

Thanks,

General discussion  - 
 
Happy Friday all!

I hope I picked the right subject for this post; I was wondering...with so many of us working in agencies around the globe...I was wondering if there's any interest in partnering up on projects, when appropriate?  

For instance: I'm in DC and I see a great opportunity in say....Dallas.  Is there interest here pooling resources and extending one's geographical reach?

Hi +Byron Johnson +Lilian Sue - as +Kami Huyse mentioned, a lot of the Solo PR community participants do this with great success. If you need a PR consultant with certain expertise in a certain geography, you may want to checkout our find-a-pro search tool: http://soloprpro.com/find-a-pr-consultant/. If there's anything I can do to help make the matching process easier here in the G+ PR community, just let me know!

PR or Marketing Tips  - 
 
I have a question about G+ Hangouts:  I'm thinking about starting a series of Hangouts for a client starting early this summer, and I'm hoping that someone's willing to share best practices for promotion.  High level details - the client is a coalition of energy suppliers and we're working to provide consumers with information about their ability to choose their supplier.  We're hoping to attract relevant reporters to the hangouts.  All comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

No one will care about a topic like their choice in energy suppliers. You need to make it relevant and useful info, enough that people would interrupt their day, to join in. I would outline the who very carefully, figure out what they would pay to see, then give it to them for free in a hangout. The energy choice could be presented, but as the secondary message. Get them to sign up for more hangouts and give you their email. In the subsequent hangout notifications you can softsell the service with special deals, etc.

Questions  - 
 
I've read instances of people using the on-line community "Second Life" to test PR campaigns and concepts.  Any members of this community take part in this practice?  If so...any best practices to share?
