I’ve recently been considering starting my own Freelance PR work, doing a bit of PR for people here and there free of charge to build up my experience, portfolio and contacts whilst also offering a helping hand! My boyfriend recently started working at a new tattoo shop in the area I live in and I found myself doing PR for them, creating a website and raising awareness of them via social media, and I am actually starting to see results!
I honestly do love PR and the work I have done for the tattoo shop has really got me thinking – would I be able to do a bit of Freelance PR on the side? I know a couple of people with businesses in the area who would benefit from it; but I am not sure how to approach this at all. I work full time at a PR agency at the moment, and I am extremely busy here and dedicated to all my clients. Would I have the time and resources to do freelance? I don’t want to promise people results and then find I don’t psychically have the time it deserves to be put into it.
Has anyone else done this before? And if so, how did you start – and how did you find it?
I’d love to hear peoples opinions on this.
