Press Releases for Every Occasion

Press Releases for Every Occasion
by Bill Stoller, Publisher

To many marketers, the press release is something of a "one size fits all" proposition. You want to get media coverage, you knock out a press release, send it to some journalists and sit back and wait.

Of course, smart Publicity Insiders already know that's a prescription for failure. You know that your press release has to have a "hook", be well-written and sent to appropriate journalists in an active, not passive, manner. But there's another part of the puzzle that even savvy publicity-seekers sometimes miss -- you can't just write "a press release", you have to write the right kind of press release.

There's no such thing as a "one size fits all" release. Smart publicists have variations of the press release model ready to be go, depending on the occasion.

How to Sell Your News to Reporters

How to Sell Your News to Reporters
by Rusty Cawley

If you want create a PR campaign that is effective and consistent, you must learn to market your story to the news media. You must learn to treat reporters as the customers who will either buy or reject your product: raw news.

You should apply the techniques of PR Rainmaking, which is the practice of using the news media to attract customers and clients to your enterprise.

Any effective campaign of PR Rainmaking is grounded in three fundamental ideas:

a) The reporter is the consumer.
b) The story is the product that must be tailored for and sold to that consumer.
c) Reporters will buy your story for their reasons, not yours.

The Reporter is the Consumer

Today's PR specialists often forget this basic principle. The bad ones - the ones that reporters ridicule as mere "flacks" - never learn it.To some of these folks, the reader or the viewer is their primary consumer. Others consider their client or their CEO to be the consumer of their work.
