Following on from our recent blog post on what to do when you have no news, we take a look at some of the most newsworthy topics for a press campaign.
There are lots of events in your company that could attract strong media interest – here are five topics that are most likely to secure positive press coverage:
#1. Creating new jobs – have you employed more than five new members of staff recently, or are you offering apprenticeships or employment schemes to attract the next generation and support the jobs market?
#2. Making investments – are you investing in any technology, machinery, equipment or infrastructure that will benefit either the local area, your clients or your industry?
#3. Senior staff appointments – have you taken on a new member of staff in a senior position, such as a CEO, MD, General Manager, Operations Manager or Sales Director?
#4. Business expansion – have you recently expanded into new business premises, taken on an additional location or expanded your offering to include new services, products, markets or countries?
#5. Community initiatives – are you doing anything to benefit or improve your local community, such as corporate social responsibility plans, green spaces projects, environmental initiatives, sports schemes, charity support or mentoring?
