Is your business successful but your profile low?
Have you got something to tell people but not sure how to go about it?
Have you contacted media outlets but still not getting any coverage?
If your business is growing and achieving but your name ‘isn’t out there’ perhaps it’s the way you are communicating. The easiest way to get your message across to the media is via a press release – but there’s a right way and wrong way of compiling one.
This workshop will tell you :-
- How to write an interesting and punchy press release.
- Who to contact and when.
- What news desks are looking for based on the six basic journalism questions of ‘who, what, when, where, why and how’
- The best methods of physically delivering the press release
- How to avoid being ignored by newspapers, magazine and broadcast media
By the end of the course you will be armed with the tools to go seeking publicity.
