Anyone can use HARO—but not everyone scores such spectacular coverage. Here’s your chance to learn how to master the art of the HARO pitch and become a PR superstar.

Peter Shankman, the founder of HARO, and Mark Ragan, publisher of PR Daily, are hosting the exclusive webinar, “10 ways to use HARO to score coverage for your organization.”

You will not only learn insider tips from the man who created and runs HARO, but also hear a case study from a professional who used the service to win coverage in The Wall Street Journal and the reporter who used HARO to find the source.
