Media Relations

  • Media relations are rather like the cultivation of a tree. It takes time, resources and patience for the results to begin to show, but, if you tend it well, it will grow, establish firm roots and continue to blossom year after year. As with most things, you must first do the groundwork before you can see the results.
  • Media relations work is an excellent illustration of the law of reaping what you sow in practice.
  • It is easily forgotten that media specialists have to fill space and that space will be read by many customers, and potential consumers of your business. So why shouldn’t it be your business that people read about? Why shouldn’t it be simply your valuable messages? Helpful journalistic comment is an invaluable marketing tool for your business.
