Writing a press (or media) release is quite an art (and a science) but don't let that scare you. Here are 10 tips to point you in the right direction.

What Determines PR Success?


As a business, non-profit or association manager, occasions will arise when you'll need to employ tactics like a brochure, a special event or a press release. But it will be your work that precedes those tactics that will determine the success of your public relations effort.

Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Its Not Who You Know But What You Know


Almost every day, I hear the same question, over and over, from motivated, well-meaning financial planners who want to use publicity in their marketing mix. It goes something like this:"Who do you know in the media? (Or, sometimes they frame it as, "Who do I need to know in the media?") Can you get me publicity?"My answer is always the same.

Five Publicity Buckets For Marketing-Minded Financial Planners


Maybe you've seen another financial planner on TV, and thought, "Hey, I'm just as good as she.

Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Create Your Very Own Story to Get Free Publicity


One big mistake that many marketing-minded financial planners make when contacting the media is to drop what's called an "information dump."Sending a reporter statistics on the growth of your business (no matter how impressive) or on the success rate of your stock picks (no matter how propitious) will simply overwhelm them and will not garner publicity.

Financial Planners, Follow These Guidelines to Get Free Publicity

A common complaint you'll hear is that the media is fixated on negative stories.But, let's face it, that's what people watch.

Financial Planners Publicity and Marketing - Live By The Calendar


The media live by the calendar. Your story pitch might miss the mark with them the first time out, solely because it's out of whack with the seasonal cycle (obvious examples: just try pitching another tax story on April 16, or offering the media your 10 tips on backyard barbecue safety the morning after Labor Day).

Financial Planners Garner Free Publicity by Making it Easy for the Media


Would you advise clients to buy a stock based on the say so of an investor relations person, or something you overheard at a restaurant? Of course not. You want to see at least some independent research before suggesting it be added to your clients' portfolios.

Marketing-Minded Financial Planners Piggyback on Topic A to Get Free Publicity


That big story the media pursue each day is what I call Topic A. And even if it doesn't seem to have anything to do with financial planning, it often lead to huge media visibility for you.
