The Power of News!

Have you even been to CNN's website? Odds are you have, and have read quite a bit of news. The reason people read the news is because news reporters and anything news related really are almost always highley credited. If you see something on the news, odds are it's not any old half baked scheme, or false bit of information. This is why news coverage is the best!

To get started, you need to create and send out press releases. Now here is the tricky part. To get these releases popular and quickley put out, you need to make them very outrageous and catchy, because that is what the average news reader wants to read. Reporters are keen on this too, and can easily tell a good, eye catching article from a poor, false article.

Gimmicks sell! Do something outrageous on your release, like offering every 5th customer the package for free! Or you could even just give away a sample or tidbit about your product for a limited time. The limited time offer is great, as it offers incentive for a customer to make the sale quickly.

Many news reporters suggest putting something radical, almost offensive titles and information in your press releases, to garner the most publicity.

For example, I remember a friend of mine built a few computers for his father's business. His father was so proud of the work he got an article put up in the paper about his son's ability to work hard and put togethor good, solid computers. Within 2 weeks, they had recieved almost 20 phone calls from subscribers to that very same paper asking him to do the same with their business or private computers. That's a conversion rate of basically 100% Now can you tell me with a straight face that all of your visitors make you money?
