Joan Stewart's free publicity campaign started at age 10 when her hometown newspaper wrote a story about a blue ribbon she won for a 4-H sewing project at the Ohio State Fair. From then on, she was hooked on publicity.

Today, Joan teaches Publicity Hounds how to catch the attention of frazzled news directors, busy reporters and grumpy editors. In fact, she worked as a grumpy editor at three daily newspapers and The Business Journal in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

As a media relations consultant and professional speaker, she shows people how to use the traditional media and social networking to establish their credibility, enhance their reputation, position themselves as experts, sell more products and services, promote a favorite cause or issue, and establish their companies as employers of choice.

More than 7,000 people worldwide subscribe to her popular ezine, "The Publicity Hound's Tips of the Week." It includes the best publicity tips and good clean dog jokes (one in each issue) you'll find anywhere. She lives and tries to stay warm in Port Washington, Wisconsin.

 

Joan Stewart’s free publicity campaign started at age 10 when The Maple Heights Press, her hometown weekly newspaper, wrote a four-inch story about a blue ribbon she won for a 4-H sewing project (a bright blue apron) at the Ohio State Fair.

From then on, she was hooked on publicity. A few years later, while other girls her age were playing with Barbie dolls and listening to Beatles albums, Joan was always scheming and thinking of ways to get into the giant newsroom at The Cleveland Press, her local metropolitan newspaper, so she could meet reporters and ask them about their jobs.
