How Not to be the annoying PR “Flack” that other professionals despise:

 Here are just a few simple tips on how to avoid doing tedious things that annoy others in the workplace. After surfing around PR websites I found some funny, yet helpful tips.

   1.) Don’t follow up e-mail pitches, if you do then journalists will then mark your e-mail address as spam for the next time.

  2.) Do not make “contact” with everyone.

  3.) Don’t send irrelevant press releases, make sure they have a concrete purpose!
