Multiple Media Wins from the One Idea for Rachel

I have to say thank you to Linda, the Media Connections Team and the brainstorming community. Recently I had some fantastic photos of fungi, I wasn’t quite sure what a great angle for the media could be though. One post in the Media Connections Brainstorming group and I have a number of great angles and my media release was born.  Posted onto the website with great images, I also set to work in arranging a media event.
From the ideas I used, in the last 3 weeks I have enjoyed coverage on both ABC and Southern Cross evening news (both local), ABC Online have created a facebook video using their footage that has been viewed over 107,000 times and just created a follow up article online.  I have been interviewed on ABC Radio 3 times, both in studio and via phone call.  I have had a full page article in our local newspaper The Gazette, and great coverage in The Mercury, with a feature article currently being worked on.
All of the above coverage has seen our business, a cafe in our National Park, booming. The connections I have made with the journalists are now also leading to many more stories. My media releases are also now seen as a valuable email to read by these journalists.
I can’t thank you all enough – it’s wonderful to know that small businesses like ours can have such a strong voice by cutting straight through to the journalists through Media Connections.

Interviews and Co-Authorship success for Rebecca

Before I joined Media Connections as a Member I knew that being in touch with the press, writing and submitting press releases, and courting media coverage would help my start up business get noticed, but I was not sure on how to go about it. I found some press release templates, but the thought of compiling a list of media contacts then sending messages to each one individually was daunting and so I never got around to it.
Since joining Media Connections and creating my profile on the site, I have been interviewed by radio and online news services, and have been accepted as a co-author in an upcoming book that will be released internationally.
The site is easy to use, and packed with useful information and resources. Regular emails and alerts from the team at Media Connections help me know when to submit releases, article ideas and pitch stories, and I now know how best to structure and write my articles for maximum impact. As a Member I also have access to individual support and feedback from the team and other members. Thanks to the support, tools and opportunities provided by Media Connections I am now a lot more confident not only in reaching out to the press, but in promoting my business generally.
I have no hesitation in recommending Media Connections Membership to anyone who is going down the DIY PR Path.

Radio Coverage and more for Property Friends

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the things you and your team do at Media Connections.
Not only do you provide great content, even teach and train, but more over you connect people.
Through those connections Property Friends (and I) have just landed a gig at a radio show that has “a cult following in the business world with an international audience of between 350,000 and 700,000, listening on the radio, online, via the app and podcasts”
Got to be happy with that sort of exposure, thanks heaps Linda, I couldn’t have done this without you.
​Kind regards

Magazine Coverage in a Leading Parenting Mag for Aunty Rozzy

Thank you Linda.  I joined Media Connections a while ago and are very excited to say that the leading children’s magazine, approached me at Aunty Rozzy for photos to go with an article they had already written.
I had been trying to get an article in this Magazine for the last five years to no avail – even though I was paying for advertising!!
Hey!!  ~ Media Connections works!  It puts you in front of people in the know who trust each other and BINGO!!  we are the hunted instead of the one doing the hunting!!

National Press and Radio Interviews for Pam

The Media Connections site is an easy way for me to connect with 1000’s journalists, and it is well set up and managed by Linda Reed Enever and her team.
They provide me with templates, advice and a direct avenue to get my press releases in front of a great set of journalists.
I’ve had several interviews and been published in National papers, that then led into radio interviews and follow ups.
Thanks for the support Media Connections team.
