Sometimes the news happens by mistake.
Here are some examples of people who forgot the microphone was on, and became the story themselves! Keep reading for three simple tips so you can avoid being caught out.
If You're Not Online, Will Your Business Flat-line?

That’s a problem! How can you fix it?

Is your social media effective and delivering the results you want?
Journalists receive so many media releases each day, so yours really has to stand out if you want your story to make headlines. A media release is a short notice to journalists informing them of a story they might want to cover. It should give them enough facts to be interested and make them want to contact you for more.
