Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

We all know that a great way to attract business and also to advertise your business effectively is in media coverage. BusinessCast Podcast recently did an article on obtaining media coverage and what you need to know about it.

Make sure you define your targets exact. It doesn’t do you any good to obtain media coverage if you are targeting the wrong market. Keep in mind the possibility of bad publicity. This is almost a guarantee. Something will always be left out, or misunderstood and in turn the media will miss speak something about your business or give wrong information, so make sure you plan for this and have a strategy on fixing the problem if it does occur.

Establish a precise process – Let everyone in your organization know who will act as your company’s spokesperson(s). Provide them with the training to deal effectively with the media and establish a straight-forward process for responding quickly to media inquiries.

How has media coverage helped you in business?
