Joan Stewart’s free publicity campaign started at age 10 when her hometown newspaper wrote a story about a blue ribbon she won for a 4-H sewing project at the Ohio State Fair. From then on, she was hooked on publicity.
Today, Joan teaches Publicity Hounds how to catch the attention of frazzled news directors, busy reporters and grumpy editors. In fact, she worked as a grumpy editor at three daily newspapers and The Business Journal in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
As a media relations consultant and professional speaker, she shows people how to use the traditional media and social networking to establish their credibility, enhance their reputation, position themselves as experts, sell more products and services, promote a favorite cause or issue, and establish their companies as employers of choice.
Her popular electronic newsletter called The Publicity Hound’s Tips of the Week goes to more than 30,000 subscribers worldwide and includes the best publicity tips and good clean dog jokes (one in each issue) you’ll find anywhere.
She lives and tries to stay warm in Port Washington, Wisconsin.
