Spotlight on Marketing - Kay's Blog

My blog, Spotlight on Marketing, is the place for us to share thoughts, opinions, questions and answers about marketing (especially marketing with integrity, from the heart). I invite you to participate in the conversation.

Podcasts: Journalists Reveal All...

You want publicity for yourself, your business or organisation, your products, your services and your events, right? Lots of it. And preferably for free, yes?

One of the best ways to get that free publicity is through media coverage (an added benefit is that it has a lot more credibility than advertising).

But how do you get that free coverage?

To find out how, listen to my FREE audio interviews with three Hong Kong journalists, who share insiders' tips about how to write a media release and how to approach journalists with an idea for a story. (Just to reassure you, yes, the interviews are in English, and the principles apply just about anywhere around the world.)

All designed to lovingly challenge and support you to become a confident and passionate marketer, so you express the truth of who you really are and succeed in business.
