Some questions we ask… 

  • How can press and media coverage help build a profitable brand and business?
  • How do we know what kind of stories journalists are looking for… and also what they’re not looking for?
  • How do you actually put together press release? How do you pitch your story idea?
  • What if a journalist ignores your pitch? What do you do next?

“PR is a marathon… not a sprint.”

Some moments of AHA! in this episode…

  • Why you need to sell your stories and not just take a blanket approach when it comes to PR.
  • Why you need to take a long term approach to PR and media.
  • The PR strategy to implement… NOW.
  • Why your email subject (when pitching) is one of the most important things to focus on.
  • The importance of being aware of current issues or topics that relate directly to you and your business.

“Journalists are not interested in you, they’re not interested in your business, they are just interested in great stories.”
