If you’re serious about getting media coverage for your business or brand, building long-term relationships with editors is vital. But most get hundreds or press releases and pitches each day, which means getting their attention can be a challenge.
In this episode, Harriet Minter – who has spent the last six years editing at the Guardian – explains what editors are looking for and how you can get their attention.
Here’s what’s covered in this episode:
- How Harriet became an editor on a national newspaper – without any formal qualifications or experience
- The daily pressures editors face, including finding suitable stories and getting eyeballs on their content
- Practical tips on building relationships with editors
- How to find story ideas journalists can’t say ‘no’ to
