If you’re a journalist currently using tools like Rebel Mouse or About.me to aggregate your online profile, you’re missing an opportunity to include your work. That’s why Muck Rack launched a new tool that allows journalists to both share their social info and a portfolio of their best work.
Not only can journalists share their best work, but there’s a perk for public relations professionals; journalists can specify what they cover and what they don’t cover. In addition to the portfolio, journalists may choose to feature their social media accounts, awards they’ve won and a personal Muck Rack Interview.
You can include the link to your personal page in:
- Your email signature so people pitching you can view it
- Your blog or website under the “about” section
- Your company’s website and/or blog (You could link to all journalists at your outlet as well.)
Here is NPR’s Andy Carvin’s page:
And Huffington Post’s Craig Kanalley’s page:
