Get to know local and radio journalists and their needs. With the right outlets for your stories, you’ll increase your media coverage without wasting resources. Take an afternoon to find the local angle in your story, work with experts to identify your principal audiences and create opportunities to approach local media outlets. Pitch your stories, pictures and events to a journalist who can reach new supporters in your area. Make your story work in sound, and radio broadcasters could reach masses of your target audiences in a whole new way, without paying for advertising.
We all dream of a full-page feature on our work in a national daily newspaper, but radio and your local print journalists can actually do more for your work, your objectives and your campaigning. Make use of the free news distribution services and other tools available.
Ideal for you if:
You want to tailor your approaches to the right media channels and need a steer on making your local PR reach further and faster.
