In my new book 100 Marketing Tips for Small Business Owners I talk about how keeping an eye on the PR request hashtag on Twitter #prrequest can be of value to a small business.
How PR request worked for me recently
I was delighted when having taken a leaf from my own book , I spotted a request from a member of the team at Bauer Media UK. They were looking for professional service providers to take part in a Gov.uk radio campaign to inform local business owners of the upcoming changes after the Brexit transition period is over from 1st Jan 2021.
The brief was simple, I just had to record a few short lines on my mobile phone which they converted to a professional ad. The campaign ran on Magic, Scala Radio and Jazz FM from Monday 26th November for 2 weeks.
