Here's how to get your business in the news
IT SOUNDS TOO good to be true. Martin Baird--founder of Robinson & Associates Corp., a marketing management firm, in Phoenix--was mentioned in the Arizona Republic newspaper's small-business column. "From that, I was asked to do seminars for USWest phone company," says Baird, "who then purchased close to 500 copies of my marketing book. I was also asked to speak at the Western Entrepreneur's Conference. All that is the direct result of one news release."
