Quotes from Jessica Alderson:

“I don’t think that PR is applicable to all kinds of apps and I don’t think it’s applicable to even necessarily startups in the same vertical in different states.”

“I think a good lens to think of it [is your app newsworthy for PR or not] through is how does this impact other people?”

“As you develop relationships then the journalists will start reaching out to you and you have a back-and-forth dialog”
