Be Newsworthy Get Business

09/30/2014 (press release: sheiladanzig) // Sheila Danzig

Let’s face it, people are desensitized to advertisements.  The reader scrolls past them everyday while checking email and social media, and looks past them on the pages of newspapers and magazines, and during commercial breaks the viewer either fast forwards, flips the channel or goes to do something else.  A business can easily run ads but this will not that business from the crowd.  Appearing in the news will.

In an recent informal survey conducted by marketing consultant Sheila Danzig, every single respondent answered they would absolutely select restaurant, business, or professional featured in the news than one they saw on an advertisement.

And who could blame them?  It’s not surprising that people trust news sources more than they trust advertising.  Anyone can buy ad space and claim whatever they want.  Being featured in the news carries credibility and adds a deeper dimension to the persona and the cause.

Since people trust news over advertising, the best way to promote a business, cause, college or job applicant, is to become newsworthy and the truth is ANYONE can be newsworthy.  The best part is, it’s free!

Why don’t more businesses and professionals use this strategy to garner more business?  One reason is that they don’t know they can.  Being newsworthy often feels inaccessible when a business person doesn’t know the right avenues and strategies.  Another big reason is that being newsworthy requires accountability and it can blow up in your face in a big way if you approach it like traditional advertising.

How does someone make a business newsworthy? First, look at what’s already in the news.  Follow hot topics that relate to the business or profession, stay up-to-date about political issues that tie in with what the occupation or profession, and think of ways you can weigh in on these topics and issues.  Write letters to local news source editors, take a stance of current laws, bills, and policies up for debate.  It is also very easy to  conduct a survey, compile the data and share your findings with the press.  Another great way to become newsworthy and elevate from to expert status is to host a talk radio show that covers current events related to your area of professional expertise.  You can buy air time at a local radio station for a regular talk show and offset your costs by charging guests a small fee to be on the air.  Even a montly radio show impresses listeners and drives them to do business with the host.

Also, don’t be afraid to give things away for free.  A great way to make anyone newsworthy is to be charitable with both the products and services and information.  It is not difficult to arrange to teach free workshops and classes at community centers, churches, and other spaces or offer free information or complimentary consultations on a website.  If there is a crises, see what the business can do to help whether it’s offering a free meal, sponsoring a benefit or giving away free items or services that people need.  This is a great way to give people a taste—literally or figuratively—of what the servies do and give any business a chance to establish rapport with the community and growing client base.

To be newsworthy the business must be able to stand up to scrutiny.  If you take a stance on a current issue or event, be sure the research is done and all statements back up the position with proof.  Charitable event press releases should be done only by a business that does this sort of thing on a regular basis so it doesn’t feel like a publicity stunt.

For an article like this about the business or event of contact Sheila Danzig for a no charge consultation. It is much more affordable than you think.

Software Simplifies Twitter Marketing for Businesses

09/30/2014 (press release: SocialCompass) // Adam Root

In present times, marketing on social media is instrumental for business success, according to SocialCentiv, a technology marketing company. The company has developed a tool that simplifies the process of Twitter marketing for small to mid-sized businesses. In a recent blog, SocialCentiv discusses reasons many businesses have yet to include marketing for this top social network, and the efficacy use of a platform like its SocialCentiv software offers.

The Many Ways to Market on Twitter

As stated in the recent article, “Why Twitter Marketing Isn’t as Hard As You Think It Is” SocialCentiv notes that using the social network as a marketing platform is not a difficult undertaking. Particularly when a business has access to a tool like the company’s SocialCentiv software, reaching tens of thousands of prospects that are having real-time conversations at any given moment on Twitter is actually plausible.

A number of businesses have expressed frustration at their attempts to effectively engage users with Twitter marketing strategies due to the time spent in singling out conversations relevant to their business.

According to Jason Dove, Vice President of Sales, “Twitter marketing apps, like SocialCentiv, allow businesses to listen to what users are saying about their business (and their products and services). The software identifies conversations in which consumers have expressed intent to purchase products or services relevant to a business’ offerings.”

SocialCentiv is touted by many businesses that have already tried it as one of the most effective tools available for turning Twitter prospects into loyal customers. SocialCentiv is offering a free trial for businesses that would like to try the software for 7 days at no cost, and see what it can do for their own marketing success.

For more information about SocialCentiv, or to register for the free trial, go to www.SocialCentiv.com today.

New 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Editions Will Offer Bold Styling This Fall

GMC.jpg

09/29/2014 (press release: CambridgePRGroup) // RAYNHAM, Mass. // Mastria Buick GMC Cadillac

Recently redesigned for the 2014 model year, the GMC Sierra 1500 already features a bolder style with its standard projector-beam headlights and chrome grille surround, but new Carbon Editions of the pickup truck will up the ante later this fall. Slated to be available in three different trims, the 2015 GMC Sierra Carbon Editions will offer carbon-fiber appearance graphics and other aggressive styling cues.

Based on the Sierra 1500 double-cab model, the standard Sierra Carbon Edition sports two carbon-fiber graphic strips that run the length of its hood, while another carbon-fiber graphic covers its tailgate panel. Other upgrades include a black painted grille and body-colored door handles and mirror caps, as well as added standard features like a 110-volt power outlet, LED cargo box lighting and remote keyless entry. Scheduled to be sold only as a Sierra SLE double cab, the Sierra Carbon 20 Edition dons the same styling as the Carbon Edition but adds 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels.

“Every Sierra driver is set apart from other truck owners because of the unmatched capability they receive, but the Carbon Editions will also let them stand out stylistically with bold graphics and design cues,” said Robert Lefrancois, general sales manager of Mastria Buick GMC Cadillac, a GMC dealership in Raynham, Mass. “With three trims to choose from, buyers can also find the Carbon Edition model that has the right mix of style and features to meet their needs.”

In addition to the styling cues adorning the other Carbon Edition variants, the top-trim Sierra Carbon 22 Edition is outfitted with exclusive 22-inch black alloy wheels and four-inch black tubular side assist steps. The model will be available as both a Sierra SLE double cab and crew cab, and it boasts standard features like dual-zone climate control, fog lamps, remote keyless start and a Universal Home Remote. GMC hopes that the new Carbon Edition models will provide an extra boost to its Sierra sales, which increased by 10 percent year-over-year in August and have risen by 7 percent year-to-date over the same period in 2013.

2015 Chevy Colorado Rated Best-in-Class for V6 Fuel Economy

Chevy.jpg

09/29/2014 (press release: CambridgePRGroup) // WATERVILLE, Maine // Central Maine Motors

Set to go on sale this fall, the all-new 2015 Chevrolet Colorado midsize pickup truck will take on Japanese-brand models like the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier, and its initial EPA fuel-economy ratings suggest it may have a leg up on that competition. When equipped with its optional V6 engine and two-wheel drive, the new Chevy Colorado will return up to 26 mpg on the highway. That figure not only tops the equivalent V6 highway ratings of the Frontier and Tacoma by four and five miles per gallon, respectively, but it also beats the highway fuel economy of the competitors’ four-cylinder models.

While the Chevy Colorado’s fuel efficiency is aided by a segment-first lightweight-aluminum hood and active aero grille shutters, its 3.6-liter V6 still packs plenty of punch under the hood, churning out a best-in-class 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque. That impressive output will allow the 2015 Colorado to tow a class-leading 7,000 pounds when properly equipped. Though fuel economy has yet to be announced for the base Colorado, the truck will house a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque.

“Midsize pickup trucks typically appeal to buyers because they have a smaller footprint and are more affordable, but up until the debut of the new Colorado, they had been behind the times when it came to fuel economy,” said Bo Hendrick, general sales manager of Central Maine Motors, a Chevy dealership in Waterville, Maine. “The 2015 Colorado not only features the most modern fuel-saving technologies in its segment, but it also offers legitimate capability that is typically reserved for full-size pickups.”

Chevrolet hopes that the arrival of its new Colorado will further boost its surging pickup-truck sales. Moving more than 49,000 units in the United States last month, the recently redesigned Chevy Silverado saw its sales rise by 13 percent compared to August 2013. In fact, the Silverado joined forces with its GM counterpart, the GMC Sierra, to outsell the Ford F-Series in August. Through the first eight months of this year, Chevy’s full-size pickup truck has sold 331,977 units, a 1 percent increase over its strong performance during the same period in 2013.
