Is it me or does this sound familiar? (This isn't directly about pick up)
Pointless passage really but I think its quite interesting. I was online doing research for my social science course about public relations and I saw a lot of the attributes are the same as for pick up. Check it out. If you altered it slightly it could totally work.
Be intelligent communicators
It’s not enough to have the nerve to start a conversation(.) or do a media-pitch(n approach) by phone, email,(in person) or Twitter. In PR(PU), you have to lead the conversation to achieve the best results. PR(PU) demands intelligent communication and an innovative and exciting approach. This will ensure you become a trusted advisor(guy thats going to bang her) who provides great value to your client(target) or company(targets, maybe in a million years).
Be stress resistant
A PR(PU) professional is often a middleman (or woman). Whether you’re in-house or agency(in field), you have to deal with various parties: CEOs,(AMOGs) stakeholders(rich farkers), editors(cock blockers), journalists(nosey buggers), suppliers(can I buy you a drink bitch hustlers), etc.
Being in the middle creates the dilemma of how to make everybody happy at the same time while achieving your PR(PU) goals. This is exceptionally hard—sometimes impossible.
However, dealing with the demands and challenges of clients(sets) and journalists(targets) is part and parcel of the PR(PU) profession and you need to accept this. Keep strict control over your emotions. A clear mind provides the only chance to move forward and not become bogged down in a stressful deadlock(actually think that sums up the feeling quite well).
Deadline is the most frequently used word in public relations, and sticking to the deadlines is one of the major tasks for a PR(PU) pro. To make this happen, you must be organized. More than that, you must organize everybody involved to make the interview happen, manage the event, or execute the campaign. For this, planning is the key. It helps to ensure you have everything under control and allows space to manoeuvre. True, you can’t predict everything, but being organized will certainly help you deal with the unexpected. (to much to change)
If you have enough energy and motivation, you’ll feel comfortable and happy in the PR(PU) industry(approach). Even in the business-to-business(public) sector, you still can have loads of fun and find creative ways of doing your job properly. Generating new ideas, hooks and angles will be necessary the whole way through your PR(PU) career, so stay on your feet and don’t stop coming up with alternative ideas.
May have gone a bit wayward at points, but I think the point stands 1 love
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.”
