Productivity Tip – Focus

Focus only on high value sites, such as
general sites that send out to a lot of journalists and have high
PageRanks. Then, focus on niche distribution sites if their available
in your industry.

Productivity Tip #2 – Media Pitching

Don't be afraid to send your press release to a section editor if you know it fits their topic and is timely. 

Most magazines and newspapers have staff directories on their Web site. Often, though, they're buried. They don't want to be inundated with crap.

So, you may have to scroll to the bottom of the page. 

Productivity Tip #3 – Tweet the Media

Look up your local affiliate broadcast station or newspaper on Twitter. Rally some friends to retweet your story.
