The Power of Strategic PR in Online Business with Brittney Lynn

In this episode of Creatives Crushing Anxiety, I talk with my friend Brittney from BrittneyLLynn.com. I’ve known Brittney for a while, we actually met in a Twitter chat and she became one of my first online business friends. I’ve watched Brittney’s business explode over the past few years and I can promise you there is a lot of value in this episode. Brittney does strategic public relations for online businesses and is the creator and host of the podcast A Day In The Life. If you want to step up your Public Relations game in 2018 then you need to listen to this episode and visit Brittney’s website.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why public relations is so valuable for online businesses.
  • An exercise for discovering the story behind your business that will allow people to connect with your brand.
  • How she and her husband paid off 50K of debt so she could start her own business.
  • The one thing she can’t do without (Hint: it’s probably on a lot of your list).
  • The three things she thinks everyone should do to take care of themselves.

  • Emily Michelle Fata

    Throughout 2017, I’ve tackled the big goal of “TRAVEL BLOGGING” and trying to make a living out of it. I started off with a new blog (after having started and shut down various blogs over the years), this time promising myself that I would write about whatever I felt I needed to, and travel around the world while doing it. I’ve invested a lot of time and love into my blog and related social media accounts and as a result, slowly but surely, I’ve grown from zero followers to a substantial following on my blog, 100 000+ monthly views on my Pinterest, 35 000+ followers on my Instagram account, and have begun mastering Final Cut Pro, the video editing software I plan to use in my vlogging for 2018. 🙂
