    Thanks Joanna! I have never sent a media release to India… I do always say it is best to have a media release translated if you possibly can….. I have looked at my PR system and seen nearly 3000 media contacts in India – I had a further look under police / fire service and can not see anything for this in particular! Feel free to ask me…[Read more]

    I always see books as keys to opening the door to the media … for speakers and experts…. to raise their profile…. maybe to sell after giving a talk…. I know of people who have sold over 100 books after giving a talk (for free!) in 1 night – then they also have a ton of subscribers too. As I am so PR minded I would suggest getting your…[Read more]

    Lees competition at this time! However for me a lot of media are away… getting ready to go away…. or catching up after being away …. I would say never stop …. however it can be challenging especially at Xmas time too…. everyone is on wind down mode and got other things to think about too!

    I need help with this!! Not something I even want to learn… !!!

  • Karin Ridgers posted a new activity comment 3 years ago

    I could find the time but for me its about being in the right head space – and my head is always with the journalists I am liaising with for me clients so in a different head space!!

    I just genuinely like to help people so happy to give some advice… need to add more advice on my PR website … my main bit of advice is to promote your promotion and that’s even easier now with social media!

    Mine is ad hoc and when I have time I have experts and celebs blog for VeggieVision TV – always a juggle as my main work is my PR work so it’s just when I can create some time and not on a deadline!

    • For consumer brands, Instagram is very powerful. Are you already on this platform? In your case, sharing images of food products, cookery and the finished dish would soon attract interest there. Famous brands connect with ‘influencers’ – the key is to find influencers who have the right Follower demographics and who generate engagement via…[Read more]

    Thanks for this Joanna! That’s super to know.

    It is easier writing about someone else than yourself!! Although you know your business better than anyone else!

    Thanks Nigel and Margi! Shared via my VeggieVision TV hat ! The link will be sorted out too…. she has just been super busy! x

  • Dear fellow MC members….

    This year my aim is to take the internet TV station that I run to the next level…..
    It is my passion and about time I turned into a business!
    The new look is live, still some […]

  • Hi Nigel and fellow Marketing Compass members!

    I have also been told I need 5 lots of T’s and C’s now for the site and this will cost over £1 ½ K for the first draft…. I just don’t know what to do as there […]

    I think its great to give away advice….. its great to help others anyway! And it raises your profile as the go to person too!

    I think they are ‘nice’ to have however I have never worked with someone as a result of being given a pen!! A few times I have given away super cotton bags with VeggieVision TV on them. I asked people to sign up for the newsletter in return and sadly after spending ages adding their details a lot unsubscribed straight away! I haven’t done this again!

  • Karin Ridgers posted a new activity comment 4 years, 11 months ago

    GREAT Nigel! Yes the media distribution service I offer is a special service that as far as I am aware no one else offers!

    Its a cross between hiring a PR to do everything and spending weeks/ months trying to do everything yourself!

    So keep ALL of the replies Margi – even the out of office as you can call or email them again as you are likely to…[Read more]

  • Karin Ridgers posted a new activity comment 4 years, 11 months ago

    Enjoy! Relax! You can chat to the producers and even let them know that you haven’t done this before – they need to make sure you are looked after and give their listeners the best show!
    Member to subtly mention your business name/ website. Do not make it into a blatant advert as no one likes this!
    When asked a question you can say something…[Read more]

    Thanks Margi – a pleasure to have connected and working with you. I get very excited for the super people I work with when we gain the interest of the media as this can really take your profile and business to the next level. Whatever that means for the individual!

    And I always say to promote your promotion too – on social media and to…[Read more]

    A BRILLIANT event Nigel – thank you so much. We both learnt a lot and have started to work on our Linked In too – looking forward to more events. Well worth the journey – and such a super area too!
