PLS Pray Hetty @AliveinMe is Very Sick with H1N1 Flu

Hetty, my dearest friend of all is very sick with the stupid H1N1 flu. I call it that because I had it myself and I’m getting a bit angry about it. Not that it would attack me but that it would go after my dear friend who already has Epilepsy and being sick gives her seizures. Everyone who reads this or sees the tweet about it please pray that she recovers quickly. This is NOT good at all, indeed very bad. She is a wonderful, caring, giving Christian and a presence on Twitter that cheers many including me. I cannot say much more because I am starting to cry. God, heal my friend I pray. Love you my friends, and thank you ~ Libby


Publicity Chic is Born!

@PublicityChic is born this evening out of the passion I feel for PR and the power publicity has to change the world. Basically it boils down to this: anyone starting a new venture, rolling out a new product or project, trying to draw attention to himself/herself or their talent, cause, etc. — needs a good publicist. I happen to be one. Without giving away too much about my age, lets just say that in the late 80’s when advertising and PR was going like crazy in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) I was privileged to intern and later become an associate at a very prestigious firm and learned everything there was to know from their top Senior VP. I learned it from the ground up and I LOVED IT and still do. Of course, everything is very different now with SEO driven emailed press releases, but it is only more exciting! The reach is so much farther and we can drive traffic to our customers websites and send press releases via email to reporters. We also reach tons of journalist online, because they are doing searches on Google and Yahoo and MSN for their stories. We can help our clients be found by making them newsworthy (like the old days) and by using good keywords in the press releases (like now). NOW is so much more exciting, there is so much more we can do and for less money. Bigger and better results. More placements on radio, TV, magazines and newspapers for our clients — and with less out of pocket for them — than in traditional PR. It’s a great time to be a publicist if you know how to do a good SEO press release with great back linking and key wording and are a dynamo at talking to the media. Well, if you’re me! So I’ve started a new Twitter account with the focus being on publicity — so people can feel free to bring their questions to @PublicityChic. I will offer free advice and enlighten on the dark corners of the mysterious world of publicity and hopefully create some excitement — or what we in the game call BUZZ — for the subject that can mean so much to so many. Well this is @PublicityChic signing off for now. See you on Twitter!

Publicist for Musicians through @libbytalks and @LBSConsult Accounts

Without a lot of obnoxious nudging from me, word got out on Twitter that I am a publicist. I started the @LBSConsult account to let people know. I linked a website to that account about my services, at: Every now and then I would mention it, but not that often in the main Twitter stream. It was on my bio on the LBS account and finally on the libbytalks account. If I was talking with friends, if the subject called for it I would mention it. And now, with almost 5,000 friends on libbytalks, I am finding myself with a nice publicity business going. I still have a press release with the Damien Cripps Band from Australia, @DamienCripps on Twitter pending. The entertainment industry is a fun place for any publicist to hang their hat and I’m very happy to be a part of it. I’m going to continue to work very hard and get these guys some great results!
