Press Release

Post by Renegadenemo » Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:58 am

OK, one and all. We'll soon be calling on your help.

There's a press release on the way so here's what we want you to do. Pretty much every media outlet these days wants info emailed straight to the news room so make it your mission to get the news room address of every local paper, TV and radio station and then everything else besides all the way up to the BBC, CNN and Sky so when we post the release here you can all make sure that whole world is saturated with it. Got it? You'll get it ahead of anyone else.

Stand by to stand by...

Just a reminder that this is now imminent so the more of you that can think of places to forward the press release to, the better. The release will be posted here and then you can copy and send it as far and wide as possible. Thanks!

Were all tuning Bluebird Blue holding our breath for this press release .......hope it comes soon :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Just a few more days and some boxes left to tick. Hope everyone has rooted out their local media newsrooms and jotted down a list of contacts for,

'Were you involved? Did you see anything? If so we'd like to hear from you'.

I remember when we started this, we had to get hold of fax number after fax number and feed page after page into a groaning machine all day in the hope that some of it would stick - it usually did but it was a lot of hard work compared to to today's way of the news media Hoovering up everything in sight. Downside is that they get tons of crap they don't want so the difficulty of landing your release on target has gone away to be replaced with the problem of having someone spot the quality items amongst their deluge of would-be news.
Thankfully, our track record of providing interesting human-interest stories and quality updates means that we have excellent relations with the established outlet so we're hopefully OK in that respect as ours is an uplifting tale for the nation amidst an unhappy sea of Brexit and rampant terrorism.

But there's still lots left for everyone and we can't have too much publicity so go add to our coverage by being ready to fire the release at that list of local rags, TV stations and radio presenters plus all your social media. You could also, if you wanted to, add your name to the release, your opinions and why you're enthused and you may well end up on the box or in the paper too.

Why not? Go for it.
