Media hype tips from the pros - pr

 

If you want to know the best way to advance the media, get guidance completely from the source: the editors, producers and journalists who elect the stories that get publicity. Here are some of the best tips I've gotten from media legislative body about being paid your story in the news.

Be customary with the show or publication. Your pitch ought to be about how your story will work for them. Don't do a common pitch ("A story about dog training. ") but advocate the segment the story would be right for, or what makes it right for them.

Don't take "no" personally. It may be that they have just done a analogous story, or they can't fit it in, or it just isn't right for them. If you speak with someone, ask if they can advocate a different show or newspaper where the story might work.

If at first you don't succeed, pitch again. But wait at least a month or two, and come back with a atypical angle (not accurately the same idea that got bowed down).

Many now fancy e-mail pitches to fax. E-mail can be reviewed quickly, and can be by a long shot forwarded to a number of others in the newsroom. Faxes often pile up unread, but e-mail gets looked at.

Keep your e-mail short and to the point. DON'T send any attachments, as they will be deleted unopened (if they get all through at all), but you can comprise a link to your web site or online media kit.

Online media kits are an helpful way for the media to get more in sequence about you. When you send a press announcement (by mail, fax or e-mail) add in a link to your online media kit. The online media kit can add in your bio, photos, articles on paper by or about you, the topics you can criticism on, a list of recommended questions (with or devoid of the answers), effect fact sheets, and no matter which else that explains more about you, your goods and services, and your topics.

When you e-mail, make your branch of learning line enticing. Using "Hi!" or amazing else that looks like spam will get it deleted not including being read. Start with QUERY: or PITCH: then give a short, effective headline.

One inhabitant TV show producer said that you didn't need to send tape with your early (mail) pitch, but a further said if you mailed a pitch with no video you wouldn't be considered. In any case, you will need a video of other TV appearances ahead of you get on a inhabitant show, so be on the safe side and send it.

Local media are all the time looking for local experts to interview on a array of topics. Send them your bio and id and they will keep you on file for the next time they need an connoisseur in your field. Even better, send one or more Rolodex(tm) cards with your topics and call information.

If your story isn't right for them at this time, they may save your press circulate and call you in the future. Don't be bowled over if you get a phone call weeks or months after you sent your pitch.

Journalists are busy people, and they get hundreds or thousands of press releases and pitches every week. Make your story exciting and make it easy for them to work with you, and you will have an edge.
