The good news is that media outlets are constantly searching for stories and people who will capture and captivate the attention of their audiences. What this means for you and your organization is that right now (TODAY) is the best time for you to reach out and earn some of the millions of dollars of free publicity that is available every day.
So just how do you impress the media and stick out in a sea of wannabes? First and foremost, don’t waste their valuable time. Virtually, every media outlet today is operating in this tough economic climate with fewer staff than they had last year. This means that they still have the same pressing deadlines and space to fill but they don’t have enough staff to do it.
