Because of the way the PressDope equipped us to execute a PR strategy, Wearwell has been covered in Fashionista, Fast Company and by influential bloggers in the 6 days since our launch. This kind of visibility definitely wouldn't have been possible without our membership. That's for darn sure.
One of the big mysteries in the business world, for me, is how to grab that gold ring and get THE placement in the right communication outlet. I love PR people for their skills, but they are hard to afford. As usual, Lorraine gets it “just right” with an affordable, interactive, community that moves with these fast paced times. Spirit of 608 and now PressDope have been my little secret, and now you know it too.
"I got more out of using PressDope than I did in three months working with a high-end PR agency that cost over $12,000 dollars. You can tell when a product is made by someone who knows the industry inside and out. And Lorraine's expert knowledge as a journalist, as well as a PR professional, is apparent as soon as you get started. As an entrepreneur, you know you need to build relationships with the media and leverage press coverage to market your business. PressDope was the cure to my decision paralysis, procrastination and fear of rejection -- and it empowered me to get the media coverage I knew my business deserved."
