Publicity: When Calling a Reporter, Keep it Short


When you are planning to call a reporter for the first time, it can help to imagine that you are a phone solicitor (albeit one with terrific, useful ideas).When phone solicitors call you, you don't want to hear a long explanation of their product.

Publicity: Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Take a Reporter to Lunch


Sometimes a phone call isn't intimate or long enough to convey all the information you have for a reporter.Two examples would be: if you have a dozen or so story ideas, or if you'd like to explain an extremely complex financial concept or strategy to a reporter.

Publicity: Five Tips for Calling a Reporter


Always ask, "Is now a good time?"Deadlines in journalism are unrelenting and unforgiving. Using these as your first words after "hello" shows the reporter you're sympathetic to her needs.

Publicity: Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Never Say These Words to a Reporter


Everyone has something that drives them up a wall. You may be surprised at what aggravates reporters.

Financial Planning Publicity: When Talking to the Media, Dont Fake What You Dont Know


Relationships are based on trust-not just romantic relationships, or doctor/patient relationships, but practically any relationship, even the one with your auto mechanic.That's why the absolute worst thing a financial planner can do in their relationship with a reporter-especially a new relationship-is to give them false information.

Publicity: The Right Way for Marketing-Minded Financial Planners to Follow Up with a Reporter


Let's say you've called a reporter with some ideas for stories about financial planning, and they seemed interested. Congratulations! First, pat yourself on the back.

Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Join Your Professional Organization to Get Free Publicity


Unlike some professionals like lawyers and doctors, financial planners aren't required to be members of a professional association.However, if you want to take advantage of a great way to get free publicity, you marketing-minding financial professionals will join an association like the Financial Planning Association or the Society of Financial Service Professionals.

Publicity: Write a Letter to the Editor for Free Publicity


Ever wonder why papers devote a page or more to letters to the editor? Because subscribers love to read them!Letters to the editor are among a paper's most popular features, so getting your name underneath a letter can be even more valuable that being quoted in a news article.Letters to the editor can't just be about anything-they have to be related to the news.

Writing a Press Release: The Medias Dirty Secret


There's a dirty little secret about press releases that the media doesn't want you to know. The fact is, most of them travel directly from the sender's computer to the reporter's trash box.

Writing a Press Release: Inverted Pyramid Style


A term you'll hear in newsrooms, in editing meetings, in Journalism 101, but almost nowhere else, is "inverted pyramid."The "inverted pyramid" style is the goal of every newspaper reporter, and, if you want free publicity, it should be the goal of your press release as well.

Publicity: Three Tips on Writing a Press Release


Use journalistic styleReporters are busy. Just like you.

Writing a Press Release: How to Write Quotes


Ideally, you will have two types of quotes in your press release. A quote from yourself is mandatory.

Writing a Press Release: The Design Basics


Big corporations like General Motors and Coca-Cola spend thousands of dollars on press kits with specially-designed folders, full-color stationery, digital photos and lots of other goodies. Does this make a reporter more likely to do their story? In my experience, the answer is no.

Publicity Wont Thrive on Press Releases Alone


Press releases are a useful tool for announcing news and for keeping your name in the mind of the news media.But you can't build a successful publicity campaign on press releases alone, for the simple reason that very few press releases ever make it into the paper.

Marketing-Minded Financial Planners, Focus on Main Points During an Interview


You never want to inundate a reporter with information, but you don't want to be branded a one-trick pony either. That's why I recommend coming up with three key points for every interview you do.
