How to get your articles in the press

On Tuesday 1st November 2011 Julie Rae (of Toys to You) gave a great talk on PR, using her experience as a journalist and working in marketing to give very useful tips and insights.

She gave lots of interesting tips – the format for a press release, avoiding technical jargon, organising photocalls, how to become someone that the press will call when they want comment on a story – particularly for dealing with local newspapers.

You can download Julie’s notes in pdf format here.

The key point to take away is that we can all use PR to promote our businesses or ourselves and it is a very cost effective mechanism.
