Getting your SME business in the national media - Seminar for Thames Valley...
Thu 6 April 2017, 17:00 – 18:00 BST
Getting your SME business in the national media
There is nothing that brings greater impact and credibility for a business, particularly a small or mid-sized one, than appearing in the quality business media - especially the national daily newspapers.
This 1-hour seminar is all about sharing how your business can apply the proven techniques to get high-impact national media coverage.This is particularly the case for B2B and financial businesses, such as partnerships, financial technology companies and consultancies.
Many businesses miss out through mistaken beliefs including:
The media is only interested in big companies (not so - we'll be looking at several case studies of small and mid-sized firms getting lots of high impact coverage)
The media is only interested in London businesses (not so - the national media is certainly very London-centric, but its not a problem!)
It is expensive (not if you do it the right way! We have several awards for "limited budget campaigns" that have generated huge coverage, lots of leads and a market leadership position for smaller businesses).
"Getting your B2B business in the national media" – seminar overview
In this punchy 1-hour seminar at our Newbury office we will be covering:
What are the elements that every journalist looks for in a story when judging its "news value"? We'll be revealing them and highlighting how your business can turn this to its advantage to create stories that grab journalists' attention.
There are four simple tactics that particularly work for smaller and mid-sized businesses looking for national media coverage - we'll tell you them!
Thinking of issuing a press release? In many cases it's the last thing you should do if you want coverage in a national newspaper. We'll tell you what to do instead
We'll be looking at case studies of three SME business clients (a tech firm, an outsourcer and a law firm) that gained strong national coverage - and what are their lessons you can apply.
This 1-hour Thursday Focus in Newbury is particularly for:
