Here are three ways today you can boost your PR-availability!
1. Check out your local paper and write an OP-ed to an article in your industry and email it today! Don’t delay. Op-eds are only as timely as the news, and you have a better chance placing yours in a smaller local paper, your hometown paper, so go and do it!
2. Write to your local reporters about what your company is planning on doing for Thanksgiving as part of your contribution to the community. By the way, WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY DOING TO CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY??? If you’re not doing anything, then by ALL MEANS do something!
3. Sponsor a local school in your community and write up a short release about it. Does the school need more library books, a new computer tutoring lab, more pens/paper? Get your employees and yourself to do a drive and donate it to your school of choice. Another way to sponsor schools is by sending them the “kids” newspaper in your name.
NOW GO AND DO GOOD!
