  1. Decide your potential customers – Always analyze the market which you really want to target. Make proper plans about why do you want a media coverage or how it will help you to expand your business. Try to forecast these main elements beforehand so that you can enjoy the free benefits of press release afterward. Always have a clear vision about how to attract investors or hire new talented personnel or generate new leads. This will help you save a lot of your time and resources.
  2. The demand of the target market –Once you are clear about the objective and the goals, you should be aware of the needs and wants of the customers want and should have a look on what they watch, read and listen to. A peculiar target audience such as ‘working women with jobs in the market sector’ will make it easier and simpler for you to decide which programmes or publications you should focus on. Designing a feedback report, an online survey or a questionnaire can turn out to be an effective tool for gathering information from a pool of target audience which can be helpful to shortlist the most appropriate target publications.
  3. Get connected to more number of editors and journalists – You can get the detailed list of the contact details of the journalists and editors from the publications and if you do not have access to these general details you can easily work out with their e-mail address. Moreover, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts are also helpful in increasing your social connections. Always stay in touch with them and maintain a healthy friendly relationship with the journalists. Keep them updated about the new coming events or freshly launched product range so that they could advertise it to the mass number of public audience.
  4. No place for ego – Try to be polite and friendly to all of your customers as well as co-workers. There should be no place for ego and arrogance in the initial years of your startup business. Try to find out the most suitable coverage medium for your products. If you are looking to target a particular area or locality hen a small notice in a local newspaper is enough whereas if you are trying to target a large number of customers then a page news in a national newspaper will be an effective tool to spread the message.
  5. Research about your target publications – Research and analyses is an efficient method in order to get a deeper understanding of the needs and wants of your audience. Although staying in touch with the news reporters is good for your business but there is a high possibility that hundreds of email pitches and press releases might stay unread for a long span of time. So, it is necessary for you to stay close to their ideal vision and try to get as much attention as you can. You should be aware of the lead time of the editor or producers in order to get the much-needed attention and publicity.
  6. Make a follow-up plan – The interested journalists will always make an effort to reach you and make arrangements about publishing your story. In case your story remains unfolded, you can simply chase the new reporters and publications. Try not to follow up different reporters at the same time as it would result in spoiling long-term relationships of yours for the short-term gains.

Thus, these tips turn out to be an efficient tool for the purpose of expanding as well as diversification of your newly established firm.
