When I talk with business people, they tend to believe if they offer good
service, they will automatically get "noticed".
Everybody "wishes" for this, but this rarely happens automatically. If you want
publicity, you need to give up this "delusion", and pro-actively, systematically,
and aggressively contact the media.
CNN and USA Today are NOT going to automatically contact you. Instead,
these people are EXPECTING you to "pitch" them on story ideas.
They EXPECT you to hunt them down, notify, inform, and solicit story ideas.
This is simply the truth of people in the media. True, they don't want a sales
pitch, but the DO want unique, interesting stories.
Without going into a tirade about the role of media in our culture, you simply
have to accept the fact, that if you want media coverage, you're going to need
to take the initiative.
I know, you may have fears and hesitation about calling some of the "hotshots"
in the media, however, if you do not approach them, they will not approach
you, even if you've got the hottest story in town!
SO, get the fantasy of producers finding you out of your head, right now!
