THE INSIDE SECRETS
OF FREE PUBLICITY FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Every year - several thousand people develop an interest in "going into business."
Product publicity is the "secret pathway" to business success everyone wants. In simple terms, product publicity is a kind of advertising that costs you nothing, yet brings in the orders for you.
Regardless of what kind of business you are operating, you should want, and strive for, as much publicity for your business and your products or services, as possible. After all, it's "free advertising" that is essential to the growth of your business. However, your publicity efforts should be well thought out, and pre-planned for maximum results.
The first, and basic form of obtaining publicity is through what is known as the press or news release. This is generally a one page story about your business, your product/service or an event happening related to your business that is about to, or has recently occurred.
These publicity stories are generally "shot gunned" to all the various media: local newspapers, radio and TV, and trade publications.
Problem number one is getting the people to whom you've sent these publicity stories, to use them, publish or broadcast them. And this leads us back to the "right way" of writing them and sending them in.
In every case, send a
short cover letter addressed to the person you want your material to be
considered by ... This means that you send your story to the city editor
of the newspapers' the news directors of the radio & TV stations:
and the managing editors of the various trade publications.
The most important thing is that you make contact with the person who has the final say as to what is to be published or; broadcast, and at the bottom line - this person's use of your material will some how make him a "hero" to his or her readers, viewers or listeners.
The cover letter should
be a short note. Go to a paper supplier - tell them you want a hundred
or so sheets of good bond paper - 8 1/2" by 11" preferably in
a pastel colour such as blue or ivory - and that you want this paper cut
into quarters, giving you a grand total of 400 sheets of note paper
On this note sheet, begin with the date across the top - skip a couple of spaces and then quickly tell the recipient of the note, the attached material is new and should be of real interest to his readers, viewers or listeners. We advise our dealers and distributors of MONEY MAKING MAGIC - our regular publication for serious wealth builders and extra income seekers - to send the following note to the editors and news directors of the media in their areas:
"Here's something that's new, and for a change, truly helpful, to people trying to cope with inflation - the soaring costs of living - and those engaged in building extra income businesses of their own. Should be of real value - interest - to your readers. Please take a look - any questions, or if you need more info, give me a call at: (503) 666-5824..."
Then, of course, you skip about four spaces, type your name, your business name, and your address sign your name above where you've typed it, and staple this note in the upper right hand corner of your news release. This note should be typed and double-spaced.
So now, you've got a cover letter, and you know who to send it to... We type up one such note, and take it to a nearby quick-print shop. They Xerox the note 4 times, paste these 4 copies onto one sheet of paper, print 50 to 100 copies, and cut the paper into individual notes, all for less than $10... Do not try to save money by photocopying or Xeroxing - a photocopy is a photocopy is a photocopy, and will not do the job for you ...
Now you need the actual publicity release, which also must be "properly" written if you expect it to be used by the media. Above all else, there's a proper form or style to use, plus the fact that it must be typed, double-spaced, and short - about a half page in total length.
About an inch from the top of the paper, with an inch and a half margin on each side of the paper; from the left hand margin, type in all capital letters PRESS RELEASE: Then, underline these words. Immediately following the colon, but not in all capital letters, put in the date. Always set the date forward by at least one day after the day you intend to mail the release.
On the same line, but on the right hand side of the page, and in all capital letters, write the words, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: Underline this, and immediately below, but not in all capital letters, type - your name - your phone number - and your address...
Skip a couple of spaces, then in all capital letters - centred between the margins - type a story headline, and underline it... Skip a couple of spaces, and from the left hand margin, all in capital letters, type the words, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: From there on, it's the news or publicity story itself.
You can write the headline before the, story, and then a story to fit the headline - or the story before the headline, and then a headline to fit the story - either way, it's basically the same as writing a space ad or a sales letter ... You attract attention and interest with the headline and fill in the details with your story.
Here's an example of the headlines we use on publicity blurbs for MONEY MAKING MAGIC:
HELP IN MAKING ENDS MEET
Notice how we continue to sell or involve the editor - His readers are always looking for better ways to make ends meet, and he's specifically interested as to what our promise involves ...
He wants his readers to "think well" of him for enlightening them with this source of help, so he reads into the story to find out who, what and how... An actual copy of one of our publicity releases is contained as an appendix to this report.
Suffice it to say that
your headline, and the story you present to the editor, must sell him on
the benefits of your product or service to his readers. Unless it
specifically does this, he'll not use it.
Come right to the point and say your product is lower in price, more convenient to use or in what way your product or service is useful to the people in general. It's also a good idea to include a complimentary sample of your product or an opportunity for him to sample your services.
Remember, the editors receiving your information are fully aware of your purposes - Free Advertising! They are not in the least interested in you or your credentials - If you've sold them on the benefits of your business to the readers, and they want background details, they'll call you. That's why you list your telephone number and address.
These people are busy people. They have not got the time nor the interest in reading about your trials and tribulations or plans for the future. They want only "a flag" that alerts them to something new and of probable real interest to their readers.
Sell the editor first. Convince him that you've found the better mousetrap. Show him that your product or service - that your business - fills a need and/or will interest a large segment of his readers, his viewers or listeners.
When an editor uses your publicity release, always follow-up with a short thank you note. Never, but never send a publicity release to an editor and then call or write demanding to know why he didn't use it, use it as you wrote it, or only gave you a quick mention. Do this once, and that particular media will "round-file" any further material received from you, unopened!
If your first effort is not used, then you should review the story itself, perhaps write it from a different angle; make sure you're sending it to the proper person - and try again!
As stated earlier, these people are busy, with hundreds of publicity releases passing across their desks every day - They only have so much space or time -therefore, your material has to stand out and in some way, fit in with the information they - the editors- want to pass along to their readers, viewers or listeners.
Regardless of your business, product, or service, you must build your press release - write it - around that particular angle or feature that makes it beneficial or interesting to the readers, viewers or listeners of the media you want to run your press release.
Without this special ingredient, you're lost before you begin.
The timing of your press release is always important Try to associate your press release with current events in the news. A story on job lay offs and increased unemployment carried in the newspapers, on TV and radio would prompt us to get a publicity release out to all the media on the help and opportunity offered by MONEY MAKING MAGIC!
Say there's a deluge of chain letters and pyramid schemes making the rounds - the media picks up on it and attempts to warn the people to beware... Within 5 days, we would get a publicity release out, explaining the availability of our report on chain letters and pyramid schemes - a report that explains everything from A to Z - who are the winners and who are the real losers.
There's another kind of timing also to keep in mind, Publication Deadlines ... For best results, always try to time it so your material reaches the editor in time for the Sunday paper. This is because that's when the papers have their greatest circulation; the most space is available, and the people, the most time to read the paper.
For articles you'd like to appear in the Sunday paper, you'll generally have to get your releases in at least nine days prior to the date of publication. If you're in doubt, call and ask about the deadline date.
Choose the media most likely to carry your press release. Select those that carry similar write-ups on a regular basis.
Always use a cover letter of some kind. It pays to call ahead to find out the name of the person you should be sending your press release to.
Use the proper press release form, complete with a headline that will interest the man deciding whether or not to use your item.
Be sure your press release is letter perfect - no typo's nor misspelled words - and don't photo-copy - always have each letter or press release individually typed or printed.
When your item is used, send a thank you note or call the editor on the phone and thank him for using your press release.
but never call or write an editor demanding to know why he didn't use
your press release,
Just try - and try again!
