A daily dose of People Helping People — though I’m pretty sure the Circus sneak peek was enough good karma to last me through the week. Three times a day I get HARO queries, where Peter Shankman looks to link journalists with sources. As an intern I haven’t technically answered any of the queries but … I’m working on it. After all, “everyone’s an expert at something” — but no one’s an expert at everything, so everyone needs expertise. Now if only we could somehow connect said experts and those in need… enter Peter Shankman.
Each day, you’ll receive up to three emails, each with anywhere from 15-30 queries per email. They’ll all be labeled with [shankman.com] in the subject line, for easy filtering. If you see a query you can answer, go for it! HelpAReporterOut.com really is that simple.
