    How To Write Your OWN Media Release for Business Owners

    in Business

    In theory, journalism seems simple: read, see or hear something and then describe it. But theoretical journalism is much different than the real thing. Just as crafting a ‘press release’ to call attention to something is a little more complicated than it appears to be. 

    An ‘advisory’ is a great way to get some immediate or future publicity by suggesting to assignment editors, producers and reporters that something is about to occur or a ‘newsmaker’ will be available for an interview or general media availability at a particular place and date. If the recipient sees some immediate ‘news’ value in the advisory he or she might direct a reporter to follow up. If not, the advance notice is usually appreciated and the newsroom will put that information in their ‘advance’ file. 

    David Tait is an experienced Canadian journalist, broadcaster and writer who has practiced news-gathering in major Canadian media markets and overseas. He has contributed stories to CBS Radio, CNN Radio, Australia’s The ABC and various other outlets and agencies.  David will guide business owners on HOW TO write your own release.  It may be one of the most effective marketing tools you'll ever learn!
