Press Release - 09 January 2006

Get your business in the news

Local Swindon businesses are invited to a free talk on how they can use the media to raise their profile and boost their business. The event will be held at M4 Business Resource on Tuesday 17 January.

Many small businesses miss opportunities in the media because they don’t know the best way to approach the press or how to write a press release. The talk, given by Ray Clancy, the first female news editor of the Mail on Sunday and now Managing Director of Gotcha Press & Publicity, will give advice on the most effective ways to get their business into the news.

Ray Clancy said: “Understanding the media and knowing how to exploit an opportunity will generate free press coverage and help a business grow. While a bad press release can kill a story dead, a well-targeted piece can be the most valuable marketing tool a business has.”

After the talk attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions. This will be followed by an introduction to M4 Business Resource and an opportunity to see the resources in action.

The talk will be held at M4 Business Resource at the University of Bath in Swindon’s Oakfield campus at 6.30pm Tuesday 17 January. Admission and parking are free and refreshments will be provided. For further information and to register for the event please contact M4 Business Resource, email, phone 01793 328832.
