Get Press Coverage for Your Startup or Established Business

Getting press for your startup or established business is one of the most important things you can do.

Press coverage will get you new clients, customers, investors, and business partnerships.

But how do you get press coverage when you're just starting out and need to put every dollar into your product or service? 

Or your business is on a tight budget?

• why it's important to get started before you need press

• how to approach the media - do's and dont's

brainstorming your pitch

• finding the "right" reporters

prepare your press release

• press distribution channels and timing

• and much more...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
