When you’re launching a new product or service, it’s tempting to think everyone will be interested in your story – including the national media. But you do need to be realistic about what will be of interest to a national audience.
In this episode, I explain how to decide if your story has national potential – or whether it’s more suited to the local or industry press.
Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:
- How journalists decide what stories to run
- What national journalists look for in a national story (and what they don’t)
- The biggest mistake people make when pitching stories to the nationals
