TIP: Create tasks that launch when a news piece runs about you/your company.

After the hard work of getting a media placement is done, it actually isn't. Add tasks like: thanking the writer on their site and via email, adding large placements to your email signature line and website, etc...

TIP: Don't limit yourself to email for a pitch.

Journalists, bloggers and online influencers spend their time outside the "inbox," so you should, too. If they're active online, consider a tweet, private message via Facebook or even a Pinterest pitch.

TIP: Use PinAlerts to notify you each time someone "pins" your stufff

Setup free PinAlerts in seconds, and
receive email notifications whenever
someone pins something from your website.

TIP: Use @IFTTT to automate online actions which typically take a lot of time.

Get familiar with ifttt (@ifttt) (www.ifttt.com). Set up recipes to alert you via text message, phone call or email when media make a specific action (e.g. blog post).

TIP: Use @Newsle to make monitoring and responding to journalists and peers easy

When your friends make the news, we make sure you know. Newsle tracks news about your friends and professional contacts across the web. You'll never miss an important story about someone you care about.

TIP: Stop the glorification of busy.

It's tough to eliminate the word busy from your lexicon, but you might want to consider it. Productive people are the ones getting things done (#gtd) and the "busy" often don't remember how they spent their time.
