Using Social Media To Attract Positive Media Coverage Without Spending Money Or Sending Out A News Release

Why are THEY on the news? Why aren’t reporters covering what WE are doing? This session will shed some light into how the news media operates, how stories are chosen and how you can create content to attract positive media coverage without spending any money or sending out a news release.

  • Engage reporters creatively without sending out news releases
