Earn a Reporter’s Attention
In media relations, your news is at the discretion of the reporter. Unlike an advertising campaign in which you pay for placement, you must stand out to a reporter to obtain an editorial story. Establishing a message that centers around what makes your company unique is a key component of a successful media relations strategy. A unique message and angle will help you achieve the media’s attention and increase your chances of getting published. You must also reach out to media outlets and reporters who cover your specific niche and appeal to your target audience.
