"My conversations with Nancy Juetten have jump-started my own publicity efforts. In February, my photo and 'My First Job' story were featured in the Job Market section of the Sunday Seattle Times, generating phone calls and emails from top leaders in the Seattle financial services and automotive industries.  Specific language Nancy shared during our first conversation now serves as the starting point for radio interviews. Since I have posted this interview on our Website, they have generated quality leads and meaningful new business conversations with clients.  Nancy's insights, information, and energy pack a punch, and I highly recommend her and her Media-Savvy-to-Go Publicity Toolkit for anyone serious about building the buzz and growing to the next level."

Knowing Whom to Call is Key to Media Relations Success



Dear Nancy,

If you’ve got breaking news to share or a compelling story to pitch, knowing whom to call is as important as the story you want to tell.

If you are a small business owner with other equally pressing deals to close and operations issues to address, chances are compiling a targeted media list isn’t high on your priority list.  The good news is that affordable resources are close at hand to make media list building easy and time efficient for even the most time starved business owners.

Before you invest in media list resources, however, remember that knowing your own “top ten” list of media outlets that represent the best potential media placements for telling your story to the right audiences is always a great place to start.

When you are familiar with the reporters who write about your business, industry, or expertise, you can demonstrate your familiarity with their work as you make your pitch.  That is always a winning way to start a conversation, capture attention, and earn editorial consideration.

For example, a story ran in the February 22, 2006 Wall Street Journal that addressed the challenge working couples face when returning home after a tough day at work.  They find themselves in “the dead zone” and can’t reconnect.  Alice Cunningham, co-owner of Olympic Hot Tub Company, identified the Wall Street Journal as a priority media placement for her company and products for 2007.  When she read this story, she immediately invited one of her best customers to respond to the Wall Street Journal reporter to suggest a Hot Spring spa as a good solution to help spouses reconnect after a tough day at work.  The reporter liked the suggestion and wrote a follow-up column a week later that offered a variety of reader suggestions, including buying a hot tub.   This example proves that following up with reporters about current stories with supplemental ideas and suggestions can be an effective way to earn the media placements that matter most to you.

If you are too time strapped to read every local newspaper or magazine and watch or listen to your targeted radio and television news programs, let the Puget Sound Media Directory make the process of identifying the right editors and reporters for your story easy for you.  My own copy from 2005 is well used and well worn, and the newly updated 2007-2008 edition is now available for purchase.  Visit www.pugetsoundmediadirectory.com to learn more.

If your company has news of interest to reporters and editors across the state of Washington, the Washington State Media Directory is a useful resource.  Visit www.finderbinder.com to learn more.

If you need to take your message beyond Washington State, consider www.medialistsonline.com.  This service is built for publicists with only occasional needs for media contact lists.  MediaLists Online allows you to generate basic media lists in a matter of minutes without having to invest substantially in software.

And, if you sell a product or service that is well targeted for holiday gift guides in national magazines and other media and you are prepared to get into action months in advance of posted deadlines, take a look at this link:

 

http://www.giftlistmedia.com/?link=nj

 

This company also creates media lists well targeted for moms, dads and grads, holiday, and more.

Now that you know about some of the useful tools available to help you share your story with the right decision makers, get into action to bring your business out of obscurity and into the media spotlight today.

When your ideal customers read about how your product or service is making a difference for others, taking advantage of a timely trend, or making news or solving problems that matter to people here and beyond, you’ll earn new Website visits, inquiries from qualified potential buyers, and new engagements.  With such wonderful benefits waiting, my only question to you is this.  What are you waiting for?
