In the old days – pre internet I mean – if you wanted to raise your profile the avenues available to you were print and broadcast media. Taking out an ad in Yellow Pages or your Thomson Local didn’t quite cut it, and still doesn’t. And let’s be honest, these days who actually looks for expert services in this way?

Your Visibility Plan should be unique and be a well thought through document, one which you may have spent some time working on as you brainstorm ideas, grow your profile and develop confidence (and skills) at being visible in the best way possible.

Technology is a powerful tool isn’t it for the communications industry? It’s my view that everyone now has the capacity to be a journalist because of social media networks, blogs etc and with the high speed nature of Twitter, for example, I think there is a need for us to be careful in what we use social media for.

With this latest PR Basics blog for the EBA, my intention is to encourage you to know the media you want to be in with your PR efforts.

You’ve decided that you have a new service or product that you want to tell the media about, but what do you do next? First of all, you need to make sure that what you think is newsworthy actually is in the media’s eyes. Both the online and offline media like to write about new things; so don’t fall into a trap of merely re-announcing something that exists with a new spin and think that’s enough.
