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.
