Whether it is a precisely planned press conference, a multi-dimensional direct marketing campaign or a broadcast approach, good creative promotions move people and brands forward. Getting the media to pay attention to your newsworthy story and marketing campaign is more than sending a press release or email. You need to effectively and creatively communicate to your prospects, clients and the media. Unfortunately, what you may consider newsworthy may not be viewed as such by the media. How can you assure your story is told correctly and prompts people to action? The answer is a coordinated public relations and marketing approach. Forging and maintaining relations with the media will pay dividends for years to come.
