PR DIY Guide: Developing a Media List

Posted January 22nd, 2020 by F4GKcb4Y

The media release is ready and you are excited to get some publicity for your business? So, what’s the next step?

More does not necessarily mean merrier. Not in the development of a media list at least. When it comes to media liaison, the fundamentals must be clear: Not all publicity is created equal. If you think that there is no such thing as bad publicity, or how bad can bad publicity go? Think again.

For specifics on pr agency visit that page

The purpose of a PR drive is to create positive awareness and buzz. And to do that, there is homework to be done: After crafting the media release, the next step is to create the media list.


Media pitching is not spamming. The last thing anyone wants for their business is for the media or contacts to block their email. We should only know spam as the strangely addictive tinned meat, not a PR tactic.

A media list should be as targeted as possible. The size of the media list should reflect the story angle or related to the industry of the media release, and not vice versa.

It is not possible to create a media release that caters to all media titles. Take for example Brand Inc., when we pitch a story angle, it will likely be about the communications industry since we are a PR agency. However, it could also be on human capital management such as moving up from internship to executive, empowering females and workplace diversity, or an opinion piece about event PR.

The important part here is to segment and identify target media, understand their interests, and finally engage them. Really, it sounds like dating.

Segment and Identify

Just like the rules of dating, set boundaries. Jokes aside, despite how ‘connected’ the world seems to be, all publications and media outlets have their unique set of target audience segmented on bases of geography, demography and psychographics.

Ideally, these characteristics need to be as close a match as possible to the target audience of one’s communication plan. This is especially tricky when the communications strategy or outreach programme involves different regions, cultures and language. The geographical boundaries, language differences, differences in consumption patterns makes it all the more important to be familiar with the different titles and the market they cater to.

An easy start to develop your media list is by scouring through the internet. Read the content from the different portals. Find editors, contributors, writers or journalists in the areas of your media release. Collate a list of these contacts. The internet may not be exhaustive but it is a good place to start.

PRoTIP: For print media, consider subscribing to Magzter. It is the world’s largest digital newsstand. It may not have all titles especially the small independent ones but with access to more than 4000 titles worldwide, it’s a great bargain!

Know Them and Understand Their Interests

Next, like any meaningful relationship, you have to know your partner and understand his or her interest. The media are not emotionless computer algorithms that put words together, they are human.

The list at this stage is still considered incomplete after identifying the ideal titles and publications. Address, general phone line and email for the news desk can be retrieved and verified effortlessly with a Google search or a phone call. However, it is not enough. It is important to know the people you wish to ‘attract’.

Alongside other great contributions such as #mancrushmonday and #foodporn , social media has made stalking a social norm. it much easier to study someone’s interest. Understanding someone’s pet peeves and proclivities helps one in figuring out ways to approach them with a better chance of striking a conversation and subsequently sharing your idea. LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are great places to stalk start.

PRoTIP: Do put their social media profile in your media list too. That will help you further when it comes to monitoring.

The Engagement (alt. section header: If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it)

Having briefly explained the amount of work that goes into the preparation of a media list, it is clear that a substantial investment of time is required to keep the contacts organised and updated on a timely basis. For organisations or individuals lacking the necessary human capital, there are alternatives.

Consider subscribing or acquiring database. Some trusted database sites include MuckRack and Contactable. However, always make sure that the database cover your region of interest.

Of course, another way is to work with a trusted PR agency. Not only will an experienced consultancy have the required contacts, their established network and familiarity with the media landscape will also help with liaising and managing the interests of all parties concerned.

PRoTIP: Before embarking on contacts acquisition, always make sure the supplier has complete information so you will not be paying for generic Google results.

In short, creating a media list can be a painstaking feat or it can also be a piece of cake depending on one’s commitment and resources. Regardless, it is an indelible item on the basic PR checklist for successful PR campaigns.

We will start with the definition of caravan. A caravan is a group of travelers or merchants banded together and organized for joint support and protection while traveling through unsettled or unfriendly country. Caravan trade, however, is associated with the history of the Middle East as far back as the records of ancient civilizations extend. The caravan trade was very well developed before the idea of sea commerce was ever considered.

The history of the caravan trades people has shown how well organized these groups of people were. The caravans crossed great distances across the unsettled desert trails, with little or no protection from the local governments.

More information about caravan sales here

The main modes of transportation were camels throughout the Arabian Peninsula. Camels could withstand the desert heat, and go numerous days without water,

The caravans were fundamental for the trade industry to prosper. The caravans worked under the regulation of the Arabian Empire. The Empire controlled their routes and tried to afford them some protection.

After the introduction of the motor truck and the airplane, the hardship of crossing the desert on foot or on came, has evolved to driving the truck to the marketplace to sell your goods. This is evident when you go to the flea markets of today, there are numerous vendors (what could have been called merchant caravans in middle east history) that travel from town to town bringing there goods to sell, trade or barter.

Webster’s dictionary defines caravan as: “a company of travelers on a journey through desert or hostile regions”, “a group of vehicles traveling together in a file”, and “a covered wagon or motor vehicle equipped as traveling living quarters”. As you can see by this definition, the term caravan has evolved into the 21st century. Just look around and you will see motor home caravans, semi-truck caravans, motorcycle caravans, all of these groups are traveling from one destination to another.

So hop in your Dodge Caravan and go for a ride. How much merchandise can you fit into it? Gather up some friends that have a Dodge Caravan and you could be caravan (a group of travelers on a journey).

Industrial ventilation fans, dust, and fume extraction systems are found in an amazing array of applications in industries large, small and in between. Fabricators, manufacturers, miners, scientists, artists, and entertainers all have uses for exhaust fans for fume and particle removal systems. There are a wide variety of these systems to fit all these applications and many more. The removal of dust, smoke and fumes is critical to the well being of workers in almost every industry.

Lumber and wood products mills, steel mills and foundries, textile mills, ceramics and aerospace material mills and factories are some of the industries where particle and fume removal is needed on a large scale. Huge turbines and impellers are needed to move the gigantic volumes of air needed to handle the giant amounts of waste dust, smoke, or fumes generated at these scales.

Crude oil refineries, petrochemical refineries and factory scale chemical manufacturers of all kinds must deal with highly volatile, flammable, and toxic organic fuels, lubricants, and solvents. The air inside them has to be protected as much as is practicable. Fans are needed to run sophisticated air entrainment systems like laminar flow hoods and positive room pressure to protect the workers inside the plant.

In the mining and quarrying industries, the lives and health of the workers depend in part on the management of dust. Coal dust, in particular, can be explosively combustible if ignited in the proper suspension ratio with air – just a spark will do. Dust and fume extractors keep these dusts below danger levels. Powerful blowers and turbines ventilate and cool underground mines, and run even more vents and dust extractors during transport, storage, and ore processing.

Small or large fabricators depend on these heavy-duty fans to remove dust and fumes from the work area. Ambient air fume collection systems, ductless fume hoods, robotic welding hoods, dust extraction systems, and airborne particle filtration units are some of the air and particulate waste management systems available. These increase in sophistication when capturing and containing more toxic, physically hazardous, and volatile materials.

Pharmaceutical, biological, chemical, and physical research and industries deal with diverse biological, chemical, and physical hazards. Blowers drive laminar flow hoods, fume containment systems, dust collection units, air filters, chemical scrubbers, and negative pressure containment rooms contribute to worker and environmental safety. These applications often demand the highest standards as many of the substances or agents handled can be deadly in very small quantities, or pathogenic and contagious.

Many of the same endeavors listed in the preceding paragraph not only have the need to protect the environment from their products and by-products, they have to protect their products from the environment as well. Ultra clean facilities meet amazing part per million standards. High output blowers to maintain positive air pressures after driving huge volumes of air past dust extractors, HEPA filters and electrostatic precipitators to maintain the input air and.

Industrial ventilation fans will likely remain the “simple machines” at the heart of air-quality devices. They will continue to keep the environment and millions of workers safer. The staggering pace of research and industrial development will find ever more uses for this critical technology.

About the Author: Local Fume extraction systems and Industrial ventilation systems are a perfect solution as contaminants can be collected for recovery or safe disposal.

Three children die in Edinburgh house fire

Posted January 21st, 2020 by F4GKcb4Y

Thursday, August 5, 2010

A criminal investigation has begun in Edinburgh after three children were killed in a fire at a three storey house just before 3pm yesterday.

Firefighters were called to the house on Slateford Road in Scotland’s capital city, for a reported gas explosion, and they put out a small fire in an upstairs room. However, there was no evidence of an explosion and none of the surrounding houses were damaged. Three young children, two boys and a girl, were found to have died at the scene. Police are treating the deaths as suspicious.

A woman, believed to be the children’s mother, was found injured on the ground in front of the house and there are reports that witnesses saw her jump from a third floor balcony. She was taken for treatment at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

In a statement the Lothian and Borders Police said: “The investigation into the cause of this tragedy is in its early stages.” However, the police have also said that there was no fault with the gas supply.

Post-mortem examinations are due to be carried out on the children’s bodies. Police said no identities would be released until these were completed.

A police spokesperson said: “A criminal investigation is currently under way and nothing more can be said at this time into the circumstances which led to their deaths.”

The mother of the three children, now named as eight year olds Gianluca and Augustino and five year old Cecilia Riggi, is to be questioned by police after details emerged that suggest it is unlikely the children died in the fire.

Neighbours have reported that they heard screaming from inside the house and one source said that when they found the victims lying dead in the living room it was “a horrific scene.” However reports that the children died before the fire broke out have not been confirmed by official sources and only reports by neighbours and others at the scene have indicated this.

Police refused to confirm reports that the children had died before the fire broke out, and say that the results of the post-mortems would help them decide whether to launch a murder inquiry into the incident.

According to Detective Superintendent Allan Jones the mother, Theresa Riggi, and her three children had been living in Edinburgh for little over a month since they were reported missing from their home in Skene, Aberdeenshire last month. Mrs Riggi is currently in a stable condition in hospital and Det Supt Jones said they are hoping to speak to her on Thursday. He said: “She’s not in a position to speak to us at the moment.”

The children were reportedly at the centre of a custody battle between Mrs Riggi and the children’s father, Pasquale Riggi. He has been informed and is helping police to determine the last movements of the family. He is not a suspect in the investigation. Det Supt Jones reported: “He’s heartbroken but he’s very composed. He realizes he holds a lot of central information that we need. We’re conscious of the trauma he’s gone through.”

Theresa Riggi and her husband were going through divorce proceedings and she was due to appear at the Court of Session in Edinburgh on Tuesday. She apparently did not attend the hearing. At that time the judge was told that her whereabouts were once again unknown.

The Judge, Lady Clark, granted a search warrant for Mrs Riggi and said that social workers should supervise the children, applying for child protection orders if necessary, after Mr Riggi’s counsel asked for an order to safeguard the children’s interests.

The children were allegedly educated at home so the Social Work Department had had no contact with the family since they moved to Scotland from the US.

It is believed that Mrs Riggi may have turned on the gas, and that a neighbour smelled the fumes and called the emergency services, which may have led to the original report of a gas explosion.

Tributes of flowers have been left close to the scene with cards of sympathy and condolences.

Lothian and Borders Police have released a statement confirming that the post mortems of Gianluca, Augustino and Cecilia have been concluded. Following this statement a warrant was issued and Theresa Riggi was charged with murder.

A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police said: “A 46-year-old woman has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the petition warrant which was granted earlier today,”

“Due to the medical condition of the accused, it is not at this time known when she will appear in court.”

In an earlier statement Mr. Riggi released a statement saying: “Our family is struggling to come to terms with the immense and tragic loss of three beautiful children.

‘Thanks to all who have offered such great comfort and support.

‘We request that the media respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

What College Taught Me About Teamwork

Posted January 13th, 2020 by F4GKcb4Y

I declared a Communications Major two years into school, after discovering that it was a subject in which I had sincere interest. Now that I have graduated from college, I look back at the myriad of group projects and interactions that I had with the fellow students. I can remember many stressful periods of working together, but also many rewarding times of working together and accomplishing our tasks as a group. In hindsight those tasks would have been much easier to complete had we received some basic teamwork training at the beginning of our program.

From my own personal experiences, I have observed three positive aspects that result from teamwork: Cooperation, Unification and Association.

Visit master programs in counseling psychology palo alto for more information specifically

Cooperation – When groups first form, they should discuss some goals and objectives that they wish to achieve. These can include items such as the coordination of meeting times, the distribution of responsibilities, what strengths each individual member brings, and of course, the deadline. In a perfect world, this team would not have any conflict, but that is rarely the case. Teams must learn to cooperate, which involves negotiation, compromise, and being open to new ideas in order to help them achieve greater results.

Unification – After a level of cooperation is established, the team must work to be unified. A team brings together a group of different minds and viewpoints which affects the direction of the team. Coming together and being unified is not always easy, as individual members give their own judgments and preferences over the other group members. Setting aside petty differences among group members and being open minded leads to a group’s unification. Brainstorming ideas and reaching a consensus is another way to build group unification. Unyielding opposition and conflict hinders a team’s ability to move in a positive direction. In contrast, unification permits team work towards a successful finish.

Association – In my final course before graduation, I participated in an advertising campaign where our purpose was to form a winning campaign strategy for a potential client. At the beginning of the school year, my professor divided our class into teams of ten students, and announced that by the end of the semester we were going to be well acquainted with each other. I casually knew some of the students from former classes, but as I worked with them outside of class, my one-time acquaintances turned into good friends as we invested time, energy, and ideas into a first rate advertising campaign. Our relationships and associations with each other created a positive environment in which we worked together and achieved positive results.

Commitment to work together as a unified team will produce many rewarding outcomes. Instead of relying upon one individual’s contribution, a team contributes many different ideas, experiences and skills. In a successful team, not only are the results greater, but each member benefits from the knowledge and skills that the other team members can offer.

Categories of Camping Tents

Posted January 8th, 2020 by F4GKcb4Y

Camping tents are available in varying types and sizes. The market consists of various categories of such tents. However, it can be confusing to find one, especially when you are not well-versed with the various models available, plus their features. When you get to understand the different types of tents and their composition, it becomes easier to select the tent of your choice. You, therefore, receive ultimate satisfaction that will make you enjoy every of your camping adventure.

Visit tents for sale melbourne for more information specifics

Below are the common categories of camping tents:

1. Dome Tents

In their standard shape, dome tents compose of the most straightforward structures. However, most of these tents are extended ones. Some of the examples under this category include:

a) The central dome which mostly contains symmetrical extensions on both ends. Such types include:

Personal tent- a one-room tent

Coleman Montana 8- a three-roomed tent

Coleman red canyon 8 tent

b) Extended dome types containing asymmetrical extensions. Examples here include:

Coleman Carlsbad 6 tent- a screened tent

Coleman Evanston 6- a screened tent- with a screened room attached to the main tent

The advantages of a dome tent are that; they are simple to pitch, are lighter than other tents, and contains a reasonable amount of headroom. The disadvantage is that the sizes are limited, and they tend to attract wind.

2. Tunnel Tents

Just as the name suggests, this type of tents are stretched out with poles that create arches. They almost always consist of equal heights beside the tent’s main axes. They contain plenty of headroom. Examples include the tents with inflatable air beams, rather than the classic poles.

For family camping, the majority of the tunnel tents contain several rooms. However, these tents do not stand freely; you must support the front and rear sides properly. Laterally, the tent is very stable, but still has several delicate lines on the side.

Examples under this category include:

Eurohike Buckingham Elite 8

Coleman Rocky Mountain 5

Vango Stanford 800 XL

Other types of tunnel tents contain the internal triangular pressure bands, for instance, the Vango air beam tents.

The advantages of tunnel tents are that: they have equal pole length, are lightweight, and have proper space to weight proportion. The disadvantage is that the middle part can remain sagging, can quickly move with strong winds, and must be pitched perfectly to avoid shakings.

3. Wedged Tents

They compose of simple tent designs. Initially, they were made of canvas, supported by a steel pole on both sides. This type of tent contains poles that hold it up from both ends. Others may have a support material at the centre of the tent, and between the two poles. That is now the wedge.

The plus side of wedged tents is that; they are stable, easy to set it up, and they are available in various sizes. The disadvantage of such camping tents is that they are bulky to pack, and heavier to set up. They also do not have enough headroom.

4. Inflatable Tents

These are new types of tents in the camping arena. Its inflatable poles are of a deep-seated design shift compared to the ordinary camping tent poles. Such models do not have aluminum of plastic poles; instead, they need to be blown up either by mouth or an air pump.

These types of camping tents are still developing. Therefore, based on the manufacturer, their durability varies significantly. The advantage is that an individual can set it up without help since they are easy to inflate, and they do not require metal poles. The disadvantage is that they are mostly smaller in size, yet heavier. You must also have an air pump since inflation via mouth may be difficult.

Ayatollah Rafsanjani commemorates Iran-Iraq battle victory

Posted December 31st, 2019 by F4GKcb4Y

Saturday, May 19, 2007

Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani commemorated the “the glories of the Islamic Revolution, the Sacred Defense in particular” during Friday prayers. He used the occasion “especially at a point when Iran’s defensive powers might be underestimated.” On 24 of May 1982, Iran drove Iraq out of Khorramshahr near its border with Iraq.

Ayatollah Rafsanjani has been the chairman of the Expediency Council which resolves government disputes arising out of legislations and advises Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Rafsanjani chided the Western countries for equipping Iraq during the war and said the Iraqi army used “hideous chemical weapons of the most destructive kind and that they targeted Iranian cities, ships and planes, taking advantage of the West’s intelligence and ammunition.”

Next, Rafsanjani indicated that Iran was open to compromise and negotiation on the impasse of Iran’s nuclear activities. Nevertheless, he stated the Iran would not brook pre-conditions. He stated, “They set a precondition for negotiations, which is humiliating to us.” He, moreover, said,

If the West is honest in its claim, doors for negotiation in the field of nuclear issue will be open.

Rafsanjani has also accused the West of wanting to bring about discord among Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims. A few days ago, he called King Abdallah bin Abdul-Aziz of Saudi Arabia to exchange view regarding this issue. King Abdullah responded that Iran has strengthened bond among Islamic nations and praised the Islamic Republic. On a similar note, in a meeting with the parliament speaker of Morocco, Rafsanjani said, “Resolving problems requires convergence and assistance from other Islamic countries.”
