Whenever your company does something newsworthy-launching a new product, celebrating a grand opening, selling your one millionth product, adding a new service, winning a local business award-send a press release to local and national journalists. Get to know a few reporters and enlist the press in helping you to build awareness of your business and its image. Image sells-to the media as well as to customers.
