PR and Marketing Expert Pam Perry Gives You 5 FAST Ways to Get Publicity

The way people interact on the Internet has changed the way marketers promote and the way publicists pitch. The web 2.0 has been the game changer for every industry. Some industries have survived and thrived. Some industries have died. But without a doubt, social media have put the power of personal branding into the hands of millions online. That’s why the term “building a platform” is so common now. Everyone understands that you need a platform to stand out and be heard. Here are five ways to get publicity using the internet.

1. Monitor services that journalists subscribe to for sources.
We recommend the following: PitchRate, HARO and Reporter Connection.

2. Have a press room on your website.
This is beyond posting a press release and a few photos. You really need to have a full scale press kit online. Build your online press kit using a like Press Kit 24/7, Gokit or Instant Press Kit.

3. Send out regular SEO press releases. Press releases aren’t dead. They’ve changed how we write and disseminate them.

4. Connect with reporters and journalists online via Twitter.
Join their weekly Tweet Chats. You can talk to journalists right where they are.

5. Have an authority blog.

This is the best way to get found by the media. Have a blog in your area of expertise and optimize by key words.
