How to get media coverage for your business or organization

There are several strategies you can use to get media coverage for your business or organization:

  1. Create a strong, compelling story: Think about what makes your business or organization unique and why it’s worth writing about. By creating a pitch that tells a compelling story about your business, its mission, and the impact it has on its customers, clients, or the community, you’ll be more interesting to journalists.
  2. Build relationships with journalists and media outlets: Establishing relationships with journalists and media outlets can make it easier to get coverage for your business or organization. You can do this by regularly sending them relevant and interesting articles about your company, responding promptly to their inquiries, and offering to be a source or expert on topics related to your business or industry.
  3. Use social media to promote what’s news in your business or organization: Social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram can be powerful tools for getting media attention. Use these platforms to share updates about your business, engage with your audience, and promote your content. Social media is a great resource for “re-sharing” any articles your company has been featured in, including your press releases.
  4. Create interesting content: Developing high-quality, informative content can help attract media attention to your business or organization. Create a full ecosystem of blog posts, infographics, videos, podcasts, books, ebooks, articles, or other types of content that showcase your expertise and provide value to your audience.
  5. Host campaigns, and events or sponsor others: Hosting events or sponsoring local or industry events can be a great way to get media attention for your business or organization. Consider hosting a press event, webinar, or workshop, or look for opportunities to sponsor events that align with your business’s values and goals.
  6. Utilize press releases: Press releases can be a useful tool for getting media attention, especially when you have a significant announcement or news to share. Be sure to follow best practices for writing and distributing press releases, including targeting the right media outlets and journalists, and including all necessary information in a clear and concise manner.

Creating consistent and continuous media coverage for your business keeps your brand top of mind and relevant. Stay in the conversation by creating ongoing press every month using these tips. The key is to think about everything you’re doing as an opportunity to show up in an online search of you or the name of your business. Create pages and pages of worthy good news that people can use to discover you for their next vendor, or speaker or to sponsor your causes.
