Spreading No News
Nowadays everyone is driven towards fascinating stories and ideas. General and common stories will definitely not result in any kind of revenue. Such stories do not attract many readers. But, if you want coverage you must keep in mind to publish stories and articles which are in trend and eye-catchy. They are fruit-bearing. But, often businesses fail to do so. And later on, they cannot even figure out the reason for their failure. But let us see how a business organization actually avoids a problem like this.
HOW TO AVOID
Self Promotion. Never forget to self-promote. One can always promote themselves and their business on their own. You just need some ideas and resources and you are done. And by self-promoting you can also make sure that your business revolves around mostly positive news and reviews, which is a major bonus point for any set-up business. And when you are promoting online you can always get the idea of your product by people’s reactions in the form of likes, dislikes, shares, and comments.
But, one must always keep in mind that self-promotion is not that easy. A business person must make sure that the stories which are being spread are not common and general like any other story. Instead, it should be convincing and noticeable. So that it attracts the audience’s attention with a snap of fingers.
A business person should also prepare an editorial calendar where he/she can mention all the upcoming events. One can use it to make a detailed plan to inform about the launch of a new product, when will they advertise it, when will they reach out to an influencer, journalist, or press media for further ados.
No Media Relations
As the point says, in media relations, people often misunderstand it to be a casual arrangement of certain meetings or interviews. But, if we just focus on the word relations, merely having their email ids and constantly bombarding them with emails is not termed as relation. Relations cannot be built in a day. It takes effort and time. But, many business organizations neglect this aspect and thereby make a blunder.
HOW TO AVOID
Maybe, start over with your way of approaching the press media and journalists. Take your time and try to make connections by sending them introduction mails, mentioning, or linking a journalist’s article with their name.
