Would you like to get media attention for your business? You can subscribe to Help a Reporter and respond to reporter queries. But you may be competing against tens if not hundreds of responses, depending on the nature of the request.
There is a way to be more proactive about getting media attention… with Twitter.
Here’s how it works:
Since it’s pretty tough to get national media exposure, start with your local market first. Most local TV stations have a morning show that needs guests. You could be that guest! Don’t neglect print journalists either, such as for your local newspaper or business magazine. Before you call and make your pitch, though, you’ve got to do your homework. That’s where Twitter comes into play.
