How to Use the Right Words to Contact Journalists in the Digital Age… so you can Market Your Message to the Media

with Raleigh Pinskey

In 2013 surveys showed that two hundred plus journalists were eliminated from their on-line and off-air jobs.

The media you once had “in your pocket” is now busily navigating a new frontier of open floodgates and uncharted territory, where they are inundated with new rules, boundaries, and parameters.

RaleighPinskeyThose once “easy contacts” could now be freelancing, setting up their own brand.

What was once a carefully walled off bastion guarded with layers of sentries holding back the flood gates of email, snail mail and phone calls is now an open-air, approachable marketplace at Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Online News Rooms, on-line magazines, blogs, Google Hangouts, You Tube channels, Skype conferences, webinars, podcasting, streaming sessions, mobile and app information modules…, to name a few.

In this presentation we will address the new delivery methods and language that the digital media in their developing world need and prefer to receive from you.

Get ready to learn “How to Use the Right Words to Contact Journalists in the Digital Age.”
