Media relations - ten basic tips to use the media to bazaar your affair - pr


In the 'Age of Scepticism' fast media coverage is one way of callous by means of the ever ever-increasing noise to get your implication across.

Research shows the arithmetic mean consumer receives connecting 1500 and 3000 marketing communication a day.

Editorial generated by media coverage is more credible than promotion and can help cut all through the clutter.

It can also help build your reputation.

But how do you get media coverage?

Here are 10 tips for harnessing the marketing power of the media.

1. Know Your Strengths.

What are you an practiced at? What is your particular area of expertise? What exceptional military or in rank can you offer? Attitude manually as the expert. Even in a disaster this can arrange you or your organisation as the 'go to' person. This builds credibility.

2. Elucidate your communiqu? objectives?

What do I want to achieve? To notify or entertain? To endow with information? To build a profile? To authority communal opinion? Not public marketing? Marketing or launching a new product or service?

3. Delimit your affect audience?

Who is my affect audience? Broad public? Customers? Competitors? Suppliers? What age are they, what level of education, what beliefs and values, geographical location, how do they use the media? What authority do they have?

4. Classify the best channels of communication.

What is the best way to reach your affect audience? TV, Radio, Internet, newspapers - local or Statewide, specialist or generalist, commerce publications, commune newsletters?

5. What is your key message?

Distil what you want to say into three key points. Bear in mind less has more impact. Be regimented and stay 'on message'. How can this letter reverberate with, affect or tap into collective attitudes among appropriate consumers?

6. Build your case?

What are the features, recompense and payback of your communication for your aim at audience? What demonstrate and proof do you have? This helps overcome what I call 'the hump of cynicism' deep-rooted in many journalists when they ask 'why is this news?'.

7. What is the hook?

What will make your implication or news announcement stand out from the rest. Be creative. Use a media delivery to charge the in sequence flow.

8. Arise long-term relationships with the media.

Visit and meet them face-to-face. Association and get to know them.

9. Use the Three Fair Rules to Act upon at your Best = Know Your Topic, Be Prepared, Relax.

10. Seek Authority Help.

For greatest impact, effectiveness and value seek the guidance of a media and contacts professional.
