Press Efforts

Who has the time to get your news through to the right reporter at the right time? We do. With services ranging from news releases to crisis communications, Media Link makes the time to:

  • Write effective news releases
  • Disseminate the release to the targeted area
  • Talk to the media at the right time
  • Pitch newsworthy angles
  • Perform follow-up calls
  • Confirm media coverage

To achieve significant media exposure, we employ a tri-layered approach to reach prime media contacts. This includes a combination of news releases and emails, followed by a series of phone calls and strategic online research to confirm media coverage.
