The Big House: How to use the media to boost your business

11 February, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Getting your business featured in newspapers, BBC News online and trade magazines is publicity that money simply can’t buy.  So learn how to secure valuable editorial coverage on this half-day workshop.

What’s on offer?

During the workshop, we’ll cover the following topics:

  • The media lowdown: deadlines, ‘churnalism’, how the media is changing
  • What journalists want
  • Top ten tips for press releases
  • How to use the news agenda to get noticed
  • Using a news hook to get the media’s attention
  • How to take great photographs that journalists will love
  • Tip and hints on how to wow journalists

Who is it for?

This half-day workshop is for start-ups, entrepreneurs and small business owners who want to dip their toe into the world of PR.  Please note that we will give booking priority to new enrollees & those who have not yet reached their 12 hours of support.  If you have already received 12 hours support, you will be placed on a waiting list.  We will then offer you a place, if one is available, nearer the time.
