Want Media Exposure?

Categories:

Most business owners crave media exposure.

Why wouldn't they?

If they get written up in the newspaper or magazine, or get featured on TV, they're sure to get a flood of new customers.

But what many entrepreneurs don't realize is that 1) you can get media exposure BEFORE you actually launch your company and 2) media exposure can help with raising money too.

Reporters are constantly doing stories and interviewing experts. If you have expertise that you will be using to start your company, you could be interviewed.

And in your interview, you can talk about your venture.

And while the interview may not get you a flood of new customers (if you're not yet selling a product or service), you may get lots of interest from investors, partners, distributors and prospective future customers.

Now the old way of getting press and getting interviewed was a lot of work. Mainly sending out media kits and press releases to tons of media sources.

But today, there's a much easier way to get PR by simply joining Reporter Connection.

You can join for free by clicking this link.

Reporter Connection works like this: every day, you'll receive a brief email with media opportunities ranging from interview requests from top magazines, newspapers and websites, to interviews on radio and TV shows.

If your expertise fits one of the requests, you simply fill out a brief form, and it gets sent to the reporter doing the story.

So join Reporter Connection today to start getting PR for your venture, and use it to gain funding and more current/prospective customers.
