Have a PR Tip to Share?

Whether you’ve been in the public relations field for one year or 30; you have a resource tip that is invaluable. Generally it is a website, but it may be a free application; a social media group, page, or hint; a book or other resource. We would like share one or two tips a month with members in “Tidbits”. Send your tidbits to Kate Gooderham and please mark that they are tidbits.

iCyte is a free add-on to your browser that helps you organize your favorite websites. You can highlight text, add notes and keep complex projects organized. It’s like Bookmarks on steroids. To add a website to your Cyte, you just click one button so it’s easy to use, and it can be retrieved from any computer even if the original web page has been deleted or changed. Also, you can share your Cytes with others working on your project, so it enhances collaboration, too. Go to http://www.icyte.com/ to learn more.
