PRODUCTS AND MARKET RESEARCH
When writing a press release, remember: you are not selling your company, but unique products or valuable analytical data that will be useful to society, business, science, or culture.
Get into the skin of a journalist — they are always hunting for new products! Therefore, write about the event tasty and interesting. When referring to your company, avoid the vague phrases “best company”, “full range of services”, “guaranteed” and the like. Just facts and figures.
Create a social project/event and “fill” it with unique activities
3. CREATE A SOCIAL PROJECT/EVENT
AND “FILL” IT WITH UNIQUE ACTIVITIES
Experts called this method — social and ethical marketing. When you give to the world and don’t ask for money in return, the good is returned to your company in the form of media coverage and a flood of new customers. Banal collection of clothing for an orphanage will not cause a response from the public. Turn on your imagination!
flash mob on the topic of healthy lifestyle
(projects “Run for me”, “Healthy to be fashionable”)
repairs in an orphanage by the efforts of pupils
(project Business of Youth (BM) ” Canteen of dreams»)
The guys from BM together with their children sent out offers of cooperation to Leroy Merlin, Your House and others. The companies promptly responded and sent the necessary construction materials for free. To pay for repairs to contractors, the Business Youth community organized an online fundraiser and collected even more than planned.
Everyone was fired up by the project’s goal-to teach children to independently search for materials and control contractors, to come up with interior design. After all, the state gives them an apartment for their 18th anniversary. This is a new approach to orphans: not with pity, but with a willingness to teach them to make adult decisions in the real world.
This is what the media wrote about.

Organize an unprecedented event
4. ORGANIZE AN UNPRECEDENTED EVENT
The crisis forces us to turn to low-budget partisan advertising. This type of marketing is built on a phenomenal event that any self-respecting media can’t miss. The press loves sensationalism, exclusive products.
This type of advertising includes “viral marketing”,
“ambient media” (ambient media), “shocking marketing” and others. You just need to create an informational occasion.
Organize an open-air event with extreme sports if you have a youth audience.
A great option if you sell sports clothing, appliances, trendy farm food or provide fitness services, beauty salons, recording studios and video production.
Hire graffiti artists who will draw pictures depicting the benefits of your brand.
The idea is suitable for any company in the B2C market, and graffiti placed near exhibition centers will be useful for the B2B sector. (The previous examples have been tested by me in practice)
Follow the simple instructions and your company will appear on TV screens.
