"8 Second PR" is a fun how-to-promote your business guide with case study examples of what works and doesn't work for marketing, social media and public relations campaigns.

It will not only help you become better at the PR game, but become a better writer and better marketer, as well."

As a published author with over 500 media interviews (print, radio and TV) over five years for one dating book ("Smart Man Hunting"), Kelly adds, "PR is a marathon versus a sprint, and '8-Second PR' is filled with new tips to magnify your message for years versus months."
